I ((AGAIN)) am such a bad "blogger". I never update... but here I am!
December is here and i couldn't be happier (well unless of course Austin was home for the holidays).
Lyla has had chronic ear infections since September, so on December 8th, she had ear tubes placed in both ears by a great doctor. She was pretty freaked out when we were in the room waiting for surgery to begin, every time any one walked in the room, even if they didn't touch her, she would be crying. So they gave her a relaxer which made her all goofy and then she didn't even care when they took her back to surgery with out Mommy. I am so thankful that she wasn't crying while they took her back or that would have really broken my heart.
She was in surgery at 7:15 AM, out at 7:30 am and we were home by 8:30 am. (Although we had been at the surgical center since 5:30 am!!)
She is doing fine with her ears now and we have a re-check next week!
|"Why are we up already?!"|
|Being silly before we went back to the room....|
|Getting her gown on.|
|She was VERY upset when anyone came in the room and she HATED the bracelets, but THEN they let her have some "Happy Meds" to relax her a little.|
|After the HAPPY MEDS! YAY!|
|Her lil bum in the gown!|
|She was not happy for about an hour after and cried non stop...|
|Then she got a new "Choo Choo" and was good to go!|
Lyla has so far enjoyed a great trip to Chattanooga with Nana and Papa Fielder to go on the North Pole Limited train ride to the North Pole to pick up Santa!
She was so excited when Santa go on the train and kept yelling "Where Santa?!" that is until it was her turn to sit with Santa! Then she was very shy and timid, which if you know her, is VERY rare! It was a fun evening filled with elves, songs, stories, cookies, and chocolate milk!
The morning after the Train ride, we took pictures with Santa, went to the Elves work shop to make crafts, and then headed back down to Georgia.
Here are some photos from our fun adventure!
Always with the eating!
She has really been into trains lately "Choo Choo's" and so this was a perfect trip for her.
Getting close to the North Pole!
Yummy Gingerbread cookies!
Oh My! It's SANTA!
Sweet silly girl!
