Try Try Again!!!

This afternoon we took Nathan back up to Primary Children's Medical Center to have his cleft palate repair, again. He was just so happy this afternoon and had a great time playing with the toys in the surgical prep area. He only screamed when the nurses weighed him and checked his length. Nathan knows now that having those things done is a sign of something bad to come!

Ellie did the sweetest thing before we took Nathan up to the hospital. Grandpa Ellinger and Dad gave Nathan a blessing and before we left, Ellie gave her prized "Sparky" dragon to Nathan to take with him. She loved that toy and so it said a lot that she would let her brother take it with him to make him feel better. As hard of a child as she has been to deal with lately, its moments like this that I'm glad that she's ours. Now if only she hadn't made our food storage area a winter wonderland with the flour...that story is better saved for another post.

We'll update as soon as Nathan is done.

He is such a precious little boy. That is so sweet of Ellie to give him that. We're having problems with Maryn now so if you have any tips on how to deal with her let me know. I know it has to do with Blake being around and her realizing she's not going to get my attention 100% of the time now.
