My 3 year old.

     That's right folks this little lady turned three! I can't believe I have a three year old. It's weird, I will probably say that for every birthday but it's true, it's just crazy how fast time flies!

     This little girl is full of spunk and sass. She is also very sweet and kind. She loves all things princess and dirt. She is friends with just about anyone she meets, and all though her brother can get on her nerves she really gets along with him well and I can tell they are already friends. She loves it when he follows her around the house and they just giggle together most days. She loves to give compliments and helps with baby Joel all the time. She will be the first to tell you she doesn't like something or she doesn't want to do something. If a kid is mean to her she is not afraid to fight back, which I actually really like about her!

     I wasn't going to do much for her birthday this year because we had such a crazy summer going on but my mom mentioned she thought Sophia needed a princess party and I knew she was totally right. So I went for it, and I will be the first to admit I went total crazy mom! I don't know what my deal was but I just had to make everything I saw! So with out further ado, Sophia's 3rd Princess party!! 

     It was such a fun day! The kids loved the party and Sophia was so spoiled, she got way to many presents! haha Sophia has so many good friends! It made me sad to think of the friends we are leaving behind in a month to move to Cali. Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate with us! A huge shout out to my mother for making the cake for me, and to my sister Tiff for coming early and helping me get stuff ready, and to my wonderful sis in law Hanna for taking pics!! You guys are fabulous!

     So I have spent my fair share of hours in hospitals lately. First Joel's surgery, then complications, then post ops, then Sophia decided to take a trip to the ER. We have had an eventful month. Let's do a quick recap.

     The second week of May Joel had his Hypospadius corrective surgery. He wasn't allowed to eat from midnight on and if you know this chunky boy that was probably the hardest part for him ha ha. I was prepared for the worst that morning but he was a gem. He made a new best friend with this 14 yr. old boy who was there for like his 5th surgery. 

     Before his surgery ready for the nurses to come take him away! That was the hardest part, handing him to the nurses, he was wide awake and just looked at me like hey where are you going? He had no idea what was coming.

     The surgery took about 2 hours. I tried to read a book but it didn't happen, there was no focusing when my kid is in surgery! After he was done the doctor came out and told me everything went smooth an when he woke up I could go back to recovery. They said it could take 15-20 minutes to wake up it took like 5 minutes and they called me back. When he saw me he immediately tried to sit up and was still to graugy and tipped over ha ha, it was pretty funny. 

   Look at those sad little druggy eyes! He was such a sweetie after he woke up he just wanted to be held and sat there watching everything. He melted every nurses heart he saw! They all wanted to take him home. 

     He healed pretty well but had some complications about a week after his surgery that have evolved into the need for another surgery. So he will go back under the knife the first week of August about three days before we move. Tyler's mom tells me we can never just move we always have some other crazy thing going on at the same time. I am starting to believe her ha ha. 

     I think Sophia was feeling left out, because about a week ago she decided to take me on my first trip to the ER. We were in a hardware store and there was a piece of glass stuck between the front and the bottom of the grocery cart, I put Sophia in the back of the cart and she stretched her legs out and the glass took a big chunk of skin out of her heal. Blood was everywhere. We ended up in the ER and spent three hours there. She needed stitches but because of where it was on her heal they couldn't give her any because there was no skin to stitch. So they bandaged her up and sent us home.

     It took about a week to stop bleeding and finally scab over but it did. She didn't let it slow her down much but she did whine about it any time someone tried to touch her foot.

     They ER spoiled miss Sophia while we were there, I think she even left loving the hospital ha ha. They gave her a full size Jesse doll and a blanket, let her watch cartoons and eat oreos and chocolate milk! They even gave Joel a blanket and a monkey and he wasn't even hurt ha ha. 

    We have had an eventful month With these two, hopefully the next month doesn't involve anymore trips to the hospital!
