Happy Valentine's Day!

Today is my birthday, so we're heading to the Museum of Science and Industry - my favorite museum in Chicagoland.  I love hanging out there with my kids!

I wanted to give a quick update on Zoe's surgery yesterday.  It was very quick  - about 10 minutes from when they carried her away to when the doctor came out to talk to us.  The clip of her tongue-tie went very smoothly, and it doesn't seem to bother her, though I will keep the ibuprofen at hand.  But coming out of anesthesia was not her favorite thing - she cried for about 45 minutes.  The only thing that made her calm down was daddy talking to her about her brothers and sister.  That made her take a deep breath and stop crying for a minute.

The sounds she makes already sound different - clearer.  Especially her "d"s.  I'm so glad we did this now instead of waiting to see if it would affect her speech.


  1. Hooray! And Happy Birthday!!!
