Update on Family

We had the sugery on Wed of this past week and all went well. I have 5 small insenions and they are healing nicely. We go back monday afternoon for a follow up appointment and hope thats all. I'm just glad they were able to do the laposcopic and not the traditional sugery. Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts as they were much appericated.

Tanner is really getting around now, He has gotten up on his hands and knees and rocks but still hasn't figured out what to do when he gets up there. He is till pulling himself across the floor and is getting his feet and legs involved more. He is such a mommas boy and has a hard time when i leave the room, Makes me feel loved :)

Makena is such a talker its funny. She is learning to be more independent and thinks she is able to everything on her own. We still have to reminder her that she is still little and still needs help with somethings. She loves her brother and loves to make him laugh or pull him across the floor to where she wants him, Good thing he loves her back :)

TJ is still loving his Job and is hoping to get some more experience with the killfloor part of Tyson chicken. He has applyed for a transer to night evis which is the kill floor so that he can start to move up quicker. Tyson has been very nice and thoughtful through this whole sugery thing and have been willing to give TJ time off work and his boss even called to check on me and to see how things were going. Which I thought was very nice.

Emily's sick

Well after 4 months of having this pain in the middle of my chest andback, and now that we finally have insurance again, i went in and had it looked at. Its not my heart thankgoodness but its my gullbladder and it looks like i have Gull stones pretty bad that they want to do surgery ASAP. I woke up this morning around 3 and was doubled over in pain for almost an hour before it eased up enough so i could get some sleep. I had an ultrasound on Monday of this past week and finally got the results today and thats what is causing this pain. So we called the hospital in Paris and Texarkana tx today and both surgens had the day off so I have to make it through the weekend and go in monday to talk with them and probably have the surgary on Mon or Tues of next week. Keep me in your prayers that all goes well and i'll be back on my feet quickly. My SIL and her family are coming down from ST. Louis to be here with Kena and to help when TJ has to go back to work. I"ll keep everyone updated as we find out more and when it all takes place

Makena's first offical hair cut

We finally broke down and cut some lenght off of Makena's hair because it kept getting tangled and she hates having it combed. So while one of our friends was here cutting TJ's hair we asked if she would cut Makena's. We have cut her bangs for a while now but as for everything else this was the first time!!!


We have this plant by the side of the porch in front and this is the flower that bloomed from it. I haven't found out what it is yet but i'm going to. So here is the flower and then the plant so if anyone of you have an Idea let me know because i sure would love to know what it is.

Tanners first veggie

Well its that time in Tanners life where he gets to try different foods, He has been on rice cereal for about a month now and does really good with it. So Today he tried Sweet Potatos and did very well with them. He wasn't to sure about it at first but after a few bits he was totally loving them. So now we get to keep feeding him them and hope no allergies come and then in 2 weeks we get to add something new. He is so in love with our food i'm sure he will do really well with them.

Tanners appointment

We were finally able to get Tanner in to see the doctor since his birth, with moving and not getting insurance till June 1st I"m glad that i'm fianlly able to take him in. This chunky monkey weighted in at 15.6 lbs and 24 1/2 inches long and his head was 16 1/2 inches. He is getting bigger each day and is starting to creep to things that he wants on the floor and i'm sure it won't be long and he will be crawling and walking. I"m not sure if i'm ready for that to happen yet but i can't stop him from wanting to keep up with his sister. He is so funny with her, she can be running in a circle and he starts laughing and kicking his feet in joy. I can't wait to see them play and interact with each other, i dont' know how i'm going to keep with these two. We go back on the 14th of July and then again in Aug or Sept to get his shots caught up so they are done before his 9 month.
