A Quick Post

Karen posted these pictures, but didn't get a chance to type a message before she had to head home and put the boy to bed.

Hear those crickets chirping?

I've been without the internet all week, so that's why you haven't heard from me in awhile. Not sure when I'll be getting it again. Ok, stop crying. I'm working on it.

Andrew's surgery was this morning. Everything is okay, and he was a real trooper throughout the whole thing. He got pretty hungry and tired right before he went into surgery and was starting to break down, but anytime someone came in, he'd perk right up and give them big smiles. He's such a little sweetie.
Here he is in pre-op.

Here he is with Daddy. That was the smallest gown they had..... He's sporting a little shoulder there. (Can you tell we woke up at 5:00 this morning?)

Taking a stroll around the room. Not quite sure what happened to his other foot.

Snoozing on the way home. Poor little tired guy. It was really strange to see him all drugged up and out of it. He was also all red and puffy from the anesthesia.

We are so grateful that Heavenly Father watched over him, and to all of you for all of your prayers and well-wishes. Yay, it's over! :)

Tomorrow Andrew is having his surgery. Today I have been a basket case. I'm sure it'll all be okay. I just can't WAIT for it to be over with...

In this picture, please ignore -

1. the snot under his nose.

2. the crazy look in his eyes. Yikes.

3. the cut above his eye - no idea which of his little escapades caused that.

4. the dried food on his nostrils

5. the sticky-up eyebrow

DO notice the little baby tooth. If you look closely you'll see that the one next door is coming in also. I'm going to miss his gummy grin, but those teeth are pretty cute, too!

Hanging out under his crib. Love those baby curls on the sides...

FYI - His vest was puffing out in front, that isn't a huge gut.

I love that baby...a lot.
Don't know if that was obvious.

If you've seen me at at for the last couple of months, I'm sure you've heard me talking about www.coupons.com. It's so great!!! You get some great coupons and can save a bundle. They're all for name brands, but if you can catch it on sale, you can make a pretty great deal. I printed out a $4 coupon for any Monopoly game and a $5 coupon for any Pictureka game. I found the card game versions of both of these for $5.24 at Wal-Mart. That means...

I got this little guy for $.24. An AMAZING deal, even if Mike is freaked out by the "attack udders" on the cover.

And this little guy for $1.24. Not too shabby.

They have a $4 coupon for Scrabble, so I'm going to pick up that card game for $1.24. Woohoo!

Our New Little Arrival

Thanks to the tooth fairy for the little deposit.

It's a lower tooth, and I'm glad for him that it's come through. Sorry about the lack of pictures lately. We're having some camera/computer issues that I'm trying to fix. In the meantime........can someone please explain to me how my newborn became an infant? Wasn't he just born yesterday??? Now he has a tooth, and when you hold his hands, he walks forward...........I'm happy to see him doing all these new things, but am so sad to say goodbye to my tiny one.
