From flower girls to frenulectomy, we have had a busy last few weeks. Clint’s littlest sister got married on June 18th and all 4 of us were in the wedding. The family was all in town so the girls were lucky to get a lot of time with their cousins. Brooklyn still asks about Hannah and Cal-forn-na and when we can go see her. (Maybe once we can make it though a 5 minute car ride without her screaming “I wan get OUT!” we can consider a 5 hour plane ride…).
Sweet Eleanor had her posterior tongue tie revision on June 24th — ugh, the worst. We are hoping that it will help her to nurse a little easier (for the both of us) and that it will mean no other feeding or speech issues down the road. Clint held her while the doctor made the “clip” while I sat in the corner (Thanks Clint!). She was able to nurse immediately following the procedure which was good sign. To make up for Clint having to hold her during the torture, I have to do her stretches 4-6 times a day for 2 weeks — meaning I have to poke my finger in her open incision site and keep it from closing back up. Ugh, really the worst.
And here is a little more of what we have been up to…
Brooklyn decided to give up her last 3 pacis to the “Paci Fairy” in exchange for some sweet presents. She still asks for the paci every now and then, especially if she is tired and/or gets hurt, but I am so proud of her for making this big step!
…and since she is a true big girl now without her pacis and all, daddy let her take her sister out for a spin. (This activity was very closely monitored by helicopter mom!)
Hannah (and Nate and Sarah and Kyle) got a grand welcome at the airport!
We got to visit with Brooklyn’s “boyfriend” Manning while we were in Wilson. His mom, Kasey, and I have been friends for 25+ years!
Miss Priss even got to go to the bridesmaid luncheon. She wanted to make herself a bit more fancy thanks to Hannah sharing her eyeball stickers.
Brooklyn did a lot of playing and not a lot (or any) napping during the wedding weekend. She finally crashed on her Nena during the reception for a quick little power nap before hitting the dance floor with her daddy.
Brooklyn turned 2.5 year old on June 20th. Her cousins happened to be at Chicfila and helped us celebrate 🙂
…even if you do like to pull your sister’s hair 😉
