New Eyes

Quinn had her eye muscle surgery on December 18. And it was the most nerve racking thing for me to ever do! The hardest thing I have ever had to do is hand my baby over to a stranger to go have an operation. It took about and hour and 20 minutes. And then we were in the recovery room for about 2 hours, and she got to come home!! She had to wear these little arm restraints to make sure she couldn't rub or scratch her eyes, so that was pretty rough for her.

I can't believe how much of a difference it made. I wasn't expecting it to look so good so soon. You can tell a Huge difference. And she acts like a new kid. She likes to sit and play with her toys now, where before she wouldn't really be content to play. I am so glad that we got it done and that she can actually see now! And the Doctor seemed quite confident that this one did the trick and we won't have to do another one.

These pictures are before... and the top one is after. You can tell a huge difference!

Winter Dance Recital 2009

It doesn't get much cuter than this! Lexi had her winter dance recital on December 7. She always loves to get dressed up in her costume and put all her make up on. I was putting her mascara on and thought to myself that people are gonna think I put fake eyelashes on her because hers are SO long! She doesn't get that from me for sure! Lexi loves dance and looks forward to going every week. She absolutely loves Ms. Katie. The song that they danced to was "Shake your tailfeathers." It was so cute.

She was so cute in her costume!

I love this picture! I think that she looks like me!
