The Surge & other schtuffs.

Well, let's start this shiz out on a light note. Here is Addy May for Halloween:

We went to Boise and strolled down the historic streets. It was sooo fun! The leaves were gorgeous as we walked down the street looking at houses. Here are some of the things we saw:

Addy May loved our stroll.

Aaaaannnndddd the next day we (my mom and I) headed over to St. Luke's for her surgery. I was a wreck. Addy was happy as can be. :) Aren't these baby hospital gowns adorable?!

She was sooooo good! I wasn't allowed to feed her after midnight the night before, and she was pretty okay with that. I just love this little pumpkin.

The surgery went well!! All they had to do was make a little incision to clean out the socket, place the femur bone in the hip socket, and cast her up! She was so groggy afterwards and the breathing tube made her throat really scratchy. It was so sad and pathetic sounding. It nearly killed me. So we headed home towards Blackfoot, and the ride home wasn't too fun for her, but when we got home, she was almost back to her normal self! It took a few days for all the meds to wear off, and the past month has been tough as far as sleeping, but she is doing great! I am so grateful that my mom was able to come up here and be with me for this. I couldn't have done it without her. It also helps that she was in this exact position 23 years ago with me!

Addy May fell asleep after her xray a week later.

Sooo we spent much of November watching football with our family, the Lovelands. And lounging.

In mid-November, we went down to Salt Lake for an eye appointment for Matt. While we were there, we went down to Provo to see Elin play a rugby game. They won! And Addy May was so happy. This is her after the game:

Thanksgiving was awesome. All the Nate's got together for some serious games and food. Addy May was awake for most of the day and in the afternoon, she CRASHED. It was neat to watch Carlee play with her and rock her to sleep. I've got pictures of that somewhere. But I'm too lazy to get up and get my other camera. Maybe I'll update this post in the future. Don't bet on it.

And these are just some other cute pics:

All tuckered out. She was playing too hard.

Addy May & Mommy have matching toesies!

We head over to Boise this week for Addy's final surgery and cast. 6 more weeks people. I will soon be able to squish my baby's legs again!! Wish us luck!
