BYU & Surgery

Here's Talmage in his souveneir shirt from Utah. We went to the BYU Bookstore and picked it up for him. I LOVE it!

Yesterday Jacob had his "surgery" done for his kidney stones at Mercy Gilbert hospital. We arrived at 6:00 am and waited for an hour. Then they took Jacob back to get him prepped, changed and IV started. After that was finished, at 8:00 am, they brought me into the surgery prep room to see him and wish him luck. Then the wait began. Talmage and I waited for 45 minutes until the doctor came out and told us everything went well. I impatiently waited another 45 minutes until I was finally able to see my hubby. Although groggy, he felt pretty good. Only later on did he feel like someone kicked him in the back.

Finally his kidney stones are gone...almost. He still has to pass some tiny ones. He's still on pain medication...ugh. I'm so proud of my hubby for being so strong. These kidney stones have put him through A LOT! It's been a month now that he's been in pain when it should've only been a day or two! Oh well, this will be behind us soon enough.

Oh yea, I was going to post a picture of his bruised up back but I can't find my camera! Dang it!

Ok so Talmage is OFFICIALLY OFFICIALLY teething!! He's been teething since he was two months old but now both of his bottom teeth have broken through! YAY! (kind of) It all started on Monday...the fevers, runny nose, and diaper rash! Not so fun! But now Talmage is doing FANTASTIC! He' going to be so cute with his two little bottom teeth in.

But that means my baby is growing up! Oh no! He's becoming a BIG boy!

A Much Needed Update!

So much has happened in the past week or two.

First of all, summer is here!! My semester is officially over! That means more time to spend with Talmage and to ORGANIZE our house! I am so excited to get started!!

And, sadly enough, Jacob still has kidney stones!! They won't zap them for another (miserable) week!! But that's a whole different story! So by the time he gets only ONE of his kidney stones zapped, he will have been in pain for a MONTH! CRAZY!

We just returned home from Utah on Monday night. We left last Thursday night. It was my first experience flying in a plane! Woo Hoo! Talmage loved it too! He always wanted to be looking out the window. Here's a picture of him...
It was lots of fun! SO the reason we took a trip to Utah was to see Jacob's brother, Eddie, get sealed in the Salt Lake Temple to his beautiful wife, Stephanie. It was a wonderful experience. It was so fun to see ALL of Jacob's brothers and sisters at once! It was crazy but soo fun! The weather was PERFECT!! I miss it already!

Mother's Day happened during our trip and it was the best! Talmage gave his mommy two gifts...he slept through the night (this was HUGE because he doesn't sleep well if he's not in his crib!). And on top of that, he took a 3 hour nap during the day so I could also take a nap! What a great present! Thank you Talmage! This Mother's Day was so special. It's my first OFFICIAL Mother's Day. I feel so lucky to be a mommy to such a sweet little boy. Jacob treated me well too! He took care of Talmage for the majority of the day. And he gave a PEARL necklace and guess what...IT'S REAL!! Here's a picture of it:

And then he gave me this FAB picture frame. It may look small but it's actually HUGE!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It's so my style!

The Lewis Life is GOOOOOD!
