Pumpkin Carving with Gram and Pops
Every year Gram makes us carve pumpkins, and this year was no exception! One Sunday after church and lunch, she busted out the pumpkins and we got busy carving. Shepard requested a "scary face" pumpkin and we decided that Fisher would want a Mickey Mouse pumpkin. The boys, Gram, and I dug out the insides of the pumpkins while Daddy and Pops did the carving. We had some technical difficulties with the Mickey Mouse pumpkin, so that one was mainly drawn on.

Fisher had to have surgery to move his little boy parts into the correct position. Fortunately, it was a very simple procedure, but it's never fun to see your little baby go under anesthesia. Meme watched Shepard for us, and we drove to Dallas Children's Hospital early in the morning. I was worried because Fisher wasn't allowed to have any food or drink after midnight, and this boy loves his breakfast. Luckily, he had enough distractions around him that he didn't seem to mind too much. Although he did keep checking his diaper bag for snacks and drinks. Gram and Pops met us at the hospital and helped us pass the time until surgery.
He did great the entire time, but got super upset when they put a heart rate monitor on his big toe. Thankfully, they let us take it off of him until it was time to go back for surgery. Right before they took him back, they gave him some medicine to make him loopy (which also helped so he wouldn't notice when mommy and daddy left). This was taken a few minutes afterwards.
Here we are in the recovery room, as he was coming off of the anesthesia. He threw up a couple of times, but was good to go after 30 minutes or so.
Snuggles with Mommy
He slept pretty much the whole two hours car ride home from the hospital, and then crashed on the floor right before bedtime. After a day or so, he was back to his happy self. So thankful that we were able to do this surgery before he remembers feeling so crummy.
Joshua and I have been so blessed to be a part of a wonderful Sunday School class. On September 10th, they threw a wonderful shower for baby boy #3! As is our tradition, we did a prayer and charm activity, where guests read cards with wonderful prayers for our family and baby. I have some wonderfully talented friends, so it's always fun to see what they come up with for gifts.
