Day Seven Post Op

Day 7 - Wednesday, November 17, 2010

I can't believe that a week ago today we were in Houston for our clinic visit and suddenly were checking into the hospital for surgery the next morning.  Today went better than the past two days, thank goodness.  I stayed on top of things with the Tylenol and we even ventured out on a little shopping trip to Costco.

Her little eye is still a little blackened on the left there, but looking better!

Seriously, can you believe this little one.  She cracks me up with her accidental poses!

...and she's going for the feet... again.  And yes, I love Mia shoes almost as much as (if not more than) I love mama shoes.

Mia did great at Costco.  We got there just about as she was due to eat, so we sat in one of their sample office chairs and got her fed.  :)  I had fun taking pictures with my cell phone to send to family.  ;)

What?!?!  They have PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE?!?!?!

Muuuuuust.  Eeeeeeeat.  Barrrrrrrrrr!!!

After the trip to Costco we went over to a park by Dell Children's Hospital (the same one we went to with Nikki and the girls) and went for a walk around the little pond there.  It was bittersweet to be there without them but brought back great memories of when they were here.

My little character kicking back in her stroller - literally - while I made her bottle up.  She was so stinking cute that I had to stop and take a picture of my silly little goose!

Man do I love this little girl!!!

So I was sitting on the couch in the living room today and I don't know why, but I started looking around.  I took in the view - my sweet baby girl chilling in her swing, the baby perifanelia scattered around the living room, the curtains, painted walls and decorations in our home.  My mind flashed back to the summer before when Zeus and I were only engaged.  I still lived in Utah at that time.  The living room in his house consisted of a TV and couch with one wall painted electric "Carribean blue".  My life has changed SO much this past year and I feel so very blessed to be here with my HUSBAND and our DAUGHTER in OUR little home.  Wow.  Crazy!  I grabbed the camera and snapped a picture to remind me of my blessings.

Life's eye view.

  1. So cute - but I hate you for your warm weather of 75 degrees! ;D It snowed here!

    Loving all the picture updates (especially one in the more recent post where she escaped her arm restraint and has her arm cuddled up under her chin! - and you are right, in some of those pictures she can strike quite the pose!)
