Wordless Wednesday, but they're never really wordless, are they?

So, after I wrote my last post about Max's wonderful advances, yesterday was a day from hell where he was super aggressive toward his brother, he was extremely hyperactive, and he wouldn't eat. However, I have seen the light and I am not discouraged!

Moving on, Harry had tubes put in his ears a couple of weeks ago. My baby can finally hear again!! He had an ear infection from the end of January to the end of April, so tubes were the only way to go. Look how sweet he is in his hospital gown!

The surgery normally only takes a few minutes, however, his surgery lasted longer because the doctor didn't expect his ear canals to be so tiny. Apparently, they are teeny!

After the surgery, he cried for about 30 minutes after waking up from the anesthesia because he was so disoriented. Broke my heart!

It was wonderful when we came home because for the first time in months, he could hear again! The afternoon of the surgery, my husband closed a door in the house and Harry jumped! And when the dog barked, he startled. He had to get used to hearing noises again.

I am so grateful that he is better and can enjoy the gift hearing once again!


  1. Stick with Max, it'll get better.

  2. Keep believin girl friend....lots on your plate right now but the road ahead will be "easier" one day!

  3. Oh my goodness, what a little sweet peanut butter. (that's what I call cute babies!)

    I know every child is different but my son (3) can be GLORIOUS one day and an ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE the next. sigh. I guess we all get like that right?

    Good luck!

    Your posts are so refreshing and honest, you have become one of my favorite blogs. I like to know there are moms out there that feel these things too!

  4. Well Praise the Lord! It sounds as if you and your boys have reached a whole new level...semi-NORMAL! Congratulations on all the hard work and love you give to them...because without you they wouldn't be the little precious boys they are. I was so happy to catch up with you today and see how y'all are doing. I don't always comment, but I'm so excited for you that today I did...and I mean it...I'm so happy for you!! Enjoy these days. There may be a few more storms ahead, but with the boys doing so much better, they will not be so often. Aren't they just little miracles~!??


I love your lovely thoughts...
