Xav's Surgery

My poor baby has been getting sick every other week for the last little while. We had been to a couple appointments with the Pediatrician and ENT, and the ENT finally said he thinks Xav would benefit from having his adenoids removed and his ear tubes replaced. I dreaded Xav having to have surgery, but he's been so sick and hasn't been sleeping well. His original ear tubes were falling out and he'd already had one ear infection. I didn't want him to keep getting ear infections, too.

Today was Xav's surgery and it went really well. The doctor said Xav's adenoids were decent sized, so we should notice a difference with his congestion. He also said his tonsils are on the border of needing to be removed. He said to watch Xav and see if he snores or isn't sleeping well. If so, he'll need his tonsils out when he's a little older.

Xav was a little whiny in recovery and kept saying he wanted us to take him home. He pulled out his IV right away, and was ready to go. The nurse had us stay for about 45 minutes, so Xav cuddled with Dad, ate a popsicle and watched the iPad.

Xav did really well the rest of the day. He's one tough boy! Hopefully this will keep my baby from getting so sick.

"Father/Son's Camping"

Jeff took will to the Father and Son's Outing this year. Will was so excited to go. He packed all his camping gear first thing Friday morning. He shoved all his clothes in this little tiny backpack.  All I heard all day was, "is it time to go to father/son's camping yet," and "when is dad going to be home?"

Jeff and Will had such a good time, despite the rainy weather. Will loved running around the tent, roasting marshmallows and getting dirty with the other boys. I'm so glad Jeff will do these things with Will. He's a good dad.

Willy Man Turns Four

Will turned four today. He is the sweetest, most considerate little man I know. He is sensitive and never wants to hurt anyone's feeling. He is so fun and goofy, and makes us laugh every day.

Will opened one of his presents in the morning and was so excited to get a scooter. I love his happy little face.

Will wanted a strawberry cake with a green 4 on it and homemade strawberry ice cream. The 4 didn't turn out very well on the cake, but he didn't care.

I love that cheesy face!

Grandma and Papa gave him a basketball hoop that he was so excited to play with.

Will really wanted a shark pinata. He helped me paper mache it a few days before his birthday, and was so happy with how it turned out. A few of his cousins came over and helped crack the pinata open and had cake and ice cream with us. It was such a fun day and Will loved it. It makes me sad how quickly he's growing up, but I'm enjoying all the time I get to spend with him. He is such a fun boy!
