Tubes



That's right, tubes. We had to get up early today because Emmy had to go in for surgery to get tubes put in her ears (I'm such a weirdo, I was taking pics of her before the surgery but the nurse assured me that a lot of moms do it). Our poor little Emmy has had an ear infection since January that just didn't want to go away. It liked her as much as we do :) So the doctor FINALLY recommended tubes (we'd been waiting for this but they wanted to try out all the antibiotics, first). I know she is going to feel so much better now! And she's so happy all the time, anyways, we'll just be able to sleep through the nights now - YAHOO!!!! She seems to be doing great, was so happy and energetic tonight. Probably because we had a pajama day and did nothing but watch movies (I love those days!).



And my wonderful friend Jessica made Emmy this BeAuTiFuL cake!!! Isn't it awesome? She has a cake making business called Sugar Baby Cakes.  Thanks so much, Jess! Emmy and I had some before dinner, it looked too good to pass up! And then we had some after dinner, too . . .

Poor girl I hope it all went well. I bet she will just be so much happier now. No fun though to have your baby go through that.

Michelle,
Your little girl is too cute. I am happy for you that she got tubes. Grumpy children are not fun.

That's sad she has to get tubes, but atleast she won't be uncomfortable anymore! I think the cake looks great! I hope everything goes well!

So sad for the little cutie! I think I'd be very nervous. I hope it all went well and makes your life better at night.

Sweet baby girl! Gabriel had chronic ear infections for the first 16 months of his life.

I hope she finally gets some relief!

Oh..poor Emmy. At least it's a pretty quick surgery and makes a HUGE difference! Chloe got tubes at 14 months after back to back infections and many rounds of antibiotics. Cleared it right up forever. :)

Love the cake! I have a friend in Arizona that does very similar cakes and I have been missing her. I just might have to use your friend for our next birthday party! :)
