2 Months!!!

Supposed to post this Monday, but life got busy.  So my little girl has reached her two month mark.  It is crazy that she has been with us that long.  Seems like she was born yesterday, but she is getting more fun to interact with.  She is a very happy baby in the morning giving us the biggest smiles ever and sometimes giggles and it is incredibly cute.  She has been the best baby at sleeping through the night, a definite blessing.  Having her sleep 6-8 hours a night is amazing allowing me to get some much needed rest.

More things that she has started doing this past month.
  • She has discovered her hands and it is so much fun to watch her try to figure them out.  
  • She loves her swing.  When she is put in it we turn on the mobile and she stares at it with so much interest and then laughs and smiles really big.  
  • Also when we talk to her now she gives us so so so much attention staring us down trying to understand what in the world we are doing and saying.  
  • She makes little noises daily.  She say a-goo and a-ga.
  • She still has a really hard time trying to be put to sleep for naps or bed which has been a challenge. 
  • When we have the tv on she watches it so I need to stop that and maybe invest in some educational programs she can watch at.
Her stats at her two month appointment are 10lbs 13oz and 22 inches long.  She is in the 50% growth for weight and height.  She is also really strong according to the doctor.  She holds up her head without any problem (been doing it for weeks) and LOVES standing on her feet.

Here are some pictures from her past month.

We can't wait to see what else she starts doing.  We love our little girl with all of our hearts.

Surgery

So last week I under went surgery and can I tell you I was really nervous.  I don't know why because it is a really simple surgery and not on any major organs.  I have had a hole in my ear drum ever since I lived in Mexico 2 years ago.  It never really bothered me except that when I wanted to pop my ears I never could because of the hole.  Swimming was not very enjoyable for me and that was actually when I discovered the hole.  I was swimming in the ocean off the coast of Mexico and the salt water burned my ear it was crazy. I was going to have the surgery performed in January of this year, but we found out we were pregnant so we decided to wait.  After Lynlee was born I kept putting off setting up the appointment and finally made it and here I am now recovering perfectly fine from the ordeal.

The first days of recovery were really hard I was really dizzy and all Lynlee wanted was to be walked around and I just couldn't do that without dropping her.  So on Thursday I made Matt call into work sick and stay home with me and the lynners.   I then decided to stop taking Loritab and the dizziness slowed down so so so so so so much.  I was just dealing with the dizziness involved with the ear now. Sometimes I forget how badly I react to Loritab (it happened when I had my wisdom teeth out too). For those of you who don't know in your middle ear is where your equilibrium is, which keeps our balance and from us toppling over everyday.  So when you fix your ear drum the Dr. has to put packing in there throwing off your balance making you dizzy.  Today I am going into see Dr. Soderberg and he is going to take out the packing that doesn't dissolve (the packing in the middle ear takes a month to dissolve) so maybe I can hear things better.  I have been deaf out of one ear and that has been an interesting experience.

I really hope that I will regain my hearing loss all because of the hole.  I also wonder if it will improve me not being so dizzy all of the time.  Man this is going to be a long month of recovery, but at least I will be distracted from myself because it is the time to remember Jesus Christ and gift of his birth.  I just love Christmas time.  Can't wait to get to Utah to see all of my family :)
