Jenna's Birthday Party

I can't believe my baby will be 2 years old on Friday. The last two years have flown by. I miss my little 6lb baby but I am enjoying every minute of watching her grow into a toddler- terrible two's here we come. We celebrated on Saturday with our families and friends and had a wonderful time. And she is still enjoy all her new toys. Thanks everyone!

Too Many Ear Infections= Tubes

As most of you know Jenna has been fighting Ear Infections off and on for about a year. After numerous trips to her doctor he decided it was time to see an ENT. Of course the ENT suggested tubes. I was debating it at first but decided it was best for Jenna and I was tired of her being on antibiotics for weeks at a time. So the day came and I was a little nervous, not for the surgery (it lasts 10 minutes) but for my baby be taken away from me by strangers. We arrived at Winchester Medical Center at 7:00 am. We went back, got her dressed in her gown and waited for 8:15 to arrive. She was having fun watching all the nurses and people walk by. But then walks in the doctor and the surgical nurse asked a few questions and swept her away. I had been preparing myself that she was going to have a major meltdown but to my surprise she was fine (they took her away so fast I don't think she had time to realize what was happening). We walked into the waiting room at 8:17 and the doctor walked in at 8:30 letting us know she was all done. Sometimes I wonder how they do it so fast?? The nurse had warned us before that when she wakes up she may be very fussy and not too happy. As she was taking us to Recovery, she said that Jenna woke up, sat up and started talking (babbling). We walked into Recovery and she was sitting on the nurses lap drinking juice and watching Winnie the Pooh, like nothing happened. And all we heard while waiting to leave was how they were amazed at how aleart and happy she was. And we left the hospital at 9:00- start to finish 2 hours- amazing. She has been great today, like I said, you would never know she had surgery. And of course mommy spoiled her with new Barney and Elmo Dvd's. Here are a few very cute pictures of Jenna before the surgery.

Our Trip To Morgantown

Over the weekend Mike, Jenna and I took trip to Morgantown to visit our families. It was a short trip, one day and one night, but it was nice to visit with my family. On Saturday night my mom and dad watched Jenna so Mike and I could go to dinner for my Birthday. We were out for 3 whole hours without her. When my niece Taylor and nephew Braden found out we were coming, they decided it would be fun to have a sleepover at Grandma and Pappy's with Jenna. They went out for Pizza, had birthday cake (they couldn't wait so they cut the cake before Mike and I returned from dinner), played in a tent and watched movies. Jenna had a blast!
My parents have my nieces' and nephew's old crib at their house for Jenna but in the past several months she has decided that it is more fun to sleep with Mike and I. So after a long day and night we headed home on Sunday morning. Jenna took a 3 1/2 hour nap when we got home (her average is 1 1/2 to 2 hours).
