Things I Am Thankful For

Adelae's new shirt

Ben's reaction to the great news guessed it...I'm pregnant! I'm very very thankful that God had blessed us with another pregnancy. I'm feeling great, for the most part. I have some afternoon sickness (instead of morning sickness) and I'm pretty tired, but other than that I'm good! Well, truthfully, Ben says I'm a little crabby :D I go to the doctor in December, but so far things are proceeding normally! Adelae is excited about being a big sister, even though she's not quite sure what it means. She has a while to warm up to the idea, my EDD is the middle of July. I'll get a more concrete date when I see the doctor.

Adelae's surgery

Adelae had her adnoids out today. She did really well and I'm very proud of her! We had to be at the surgery center at 6:30 this morning! Yikes! Luckily, she was the first patient of the day, so they got her in for her surgery at about 7:00. The procedure took about 20 minutes and Ben and I were able to stay with Adelae in the recovery room. She was pretty zonked out most of the time she was in there. She woke up a few times and said "Hi" and then went right back to sleep. When she did finally wake up, she was more upset about the clip on her finger (to measure oxygen) then she was about anything else. In true Adelae fashion, she just wanted her daddy, her bleeblee and her Sally. She was able to eat a few Cheerios while she was in recovery. The doctor that performed the surgery said that Adelae's adnoids were indeed inflamed and they were preventing the junk in her nose from draining properly. So, it's a good thing we had the procedure done. She didn't need her tonsils out, so that's good! We're hoping that this will help her breathing and her allergies. Adelae doesn't have any restrictions as far as what she can eat or drink. She just needs to kind of take it easy for the next week or so. That may be easier said than done!

Punkin Pie Time

I've never made a pumpkin pie before so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm not patient enough to actually make my own pumpkin mash, so we just used Libby's. Adelae helped me, so I guess it was her first pumpkin pie too!

It's Election Day!

In case you've been living in a cave for the last two years and don't know, Today's Election Day! This has been one of the longest campaigns in history. For two years now we've been bombarded with political ads from all sides. Today it all comes to an end. I plan on exercising my civic duty and voting. I encourage everyone to do the same. We are very strong Obama supporters in this house. I guess some of it has rubbed off on Adelae. In case you are still undecided and want to take advice from a 1 1/2 year old, Adelae has something to tell you....
