Tongue Tied

Boy am I glad last week is over and we all lived. Between croup and the hospital stay and then finding out Hannah was tongue tied, it was an exhausting week. I was glad when we got the okay from the doctor that Jacob could travel and was doing so much better. Ryan started a 7 week project today at work that has him working 6 days a week for 12 hours a day. I don't know who will be more tired- Ryan or me. So we headed for the valley for the weekend. Thursday night Wendi looked in Hannah's mouth and told us she was tongue tied. Her cute boy, Ethan, was tongue tied. That's where under your tongue you have a membrane that keeps your tongue from moving and cupping the bottle correctly. I had never heard of that before Wendi. I crossed my fingers I could get into the doctor that clipped Ethan's tongue because not all doctors do it. I was in luck and the doctor clipped Hannah last Friday. He said she had a pretty good tongue tie. That's why it would take her 25 min to eat 2 and half ounces. Then by the end of the day she was really gassy and a little grumpy. Her bedtime bottle was a struggle. But, overall she is a pretty good girl. I had no idea of being tongue tied and just thought she had gas at the end of the day. We had a rough couple of days but hopefully we can get back on track and life calms down. At the doctor last Friday she was 8 and half pounds and 21 and 3/4 in long. She has just started to really fill out this last week or so. She's just a cute girl that we all love so much. She loves to lay on our bed and watch the world and watch Dallin play on our bed. We are so blessed she is in our family!!

Hannah all snug and warm for a drive. A friend made her cute hat!!

Dallin loves when Hannah goes in and lays on his bed after naptime!
