Bitter Sweet Yankee Cake

Last night as Samantha was at mutual I was with the kids. When Mom leaves, Dad feeds the kids whatever seems good. They really don't get anything nutritional...I'm like Bill Cosby at times and think because their is flower & eggs in cake that it's good for them. So a while they were eating there nutritional cake I watched the Yankees/Angels game. I hate the Yankees and cheer for any team playing against them. The Angels nearly blew it and lost but barely squeezed out a win. Now the Angels have to win the final 2 games in NY to advance to the World Series. So a while the Angels win was sweet these next games will probably be bitter.

No more goop eye!

Malia had her clogged tear duct surgery on Monday, and it went really well. She didn't cry at all before when they were putting on all the monitor stuff. She just looked at them like, "what the heck are you doing to me." The anesthesiologist picked her up and took her to the back, which was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I knew it was a really quick procedure and she would only be out for about 10 minutes, but she was still going completely under! Totally scary! She did great though, the doctor said they just put the mask on and she was out. Completely different story when she woke up. She was ticked off! She wasn't just crying, she was screaming at the top of her lungs for about 20 minutes and throwing herself all over the place. Poor girl, had no idea what was going on. She finally calmed down and fell asleep on the way home. The doctor said that she had never seen such a tight tear duct before, which meant a lot of swelling and bruising. And she was right, she looked like she got into a fight. It was really swollen and black and blue. But it already looks way better, just bruised now, but no more gunk in her eye! It's seriously weird to see her eye all clean and not half shut with goop . Here are some pics of her poor little beat up eye!

Right after she got home, of course she's eating.

Two days later, no crusties, goop or gunk in her eye! Yeah!!!!

Malia's Surgery

It's been a year and Malia's clogged tear duct hasn't cleared up they did surgery on her this morning. I stayed with Ethan and Sam went with Malia. All morning Ethan wanted to know where "sam & lia were". The surgery went well. The Doctor said that she had never seen a tear duct that tight before and since it was so tight she will have some bad bruising. We will have pictures of it later...but she is sleeping right now and everything went well.

One year ago today we had out little girl, I can't believe it's been a year already!

Here's our bright eyed girl now

She loves:
to eat
beg for food
to watch TV
her feet played with

to steel Ethan's toys from him
to squeal at the top of her lungs
to swing outside
to play outside
to take a bath
to play in the toilet
to turn off the computer
to play in the middle of the night
to throw a fit when she doesn't get what she wants, yes it started already!
of course her mommy and daddy and big brother

She hates:
when she is done eating
when she's done taking a bath
having a shirt put on her
That's about it, she's a pretty easy going little girl, unless you cross her, then she can hold her own.
