Tongue Tied No More

Jarrett was born tongue tied (tight frenulum). I've asked about getting it fixed several times the past few years, but always told let's wait and see if it stretches on its own. At his 4 year old appointment I insisted we get referred to an ENT to get it fixed. Poor guy couldn't lick his lips or an ice cream cone. I was also worried about his speech.

So today was the day. We went to OKC yesterday afternoon to stay the night. Jare had to be at the surgery center by 6:30 am.

Here are Scott and Bree while we wait.

Jare and I snuggling before the feel good medicine they gave him.

A little bit of a daze after the meds.

The surgery went well. The nurses all told us how sweet he is. He fooled them that's for sure!
As we were leaving Jare said "I just want my tongue to feel normal." It was numbed up pretty good.

My mom and dad came to the surgery to give Sawyer back to us. He'd been with them since Friday. I missed him so much!

Jarrett sacked out on the way home. Poor guy was so brave today!

Our only challenge so far is finding him food that doesn't "hurt". He's in a growth spurt I think and always starving. Hoping he's back to normal tomorrow.

We will probably get to do this all over again with Sawyer when he turns 4! Still trying to figure out why my boys were born tongue tied but not Bree!

We went to Paden for Labor Day/My Parents moving weekend.

I slept with these two munchkins. Or didn't sleep. Whichever!

Last time we visited my Pa told Breeana next time we came he'd take her and the boys to get cowboy boots. She doesn't forget so we loaded up and went shopping Saturday. Boots led to wranglers, wranglers led to belts, belts led to shirts, and shirts led to hats! They sure are cute though! Was absolutely too hot for their jeans!

My pa, parents, and Ashley's mom have bought little ponies for all the kids. Jarrett rode, Duke first, he's pictured below with Bree. Then he rode Trigger a little bigger pony that Ashleys aunt and uncle brought down along with a few others. He rode them all then said I need on that one. It was a big quater horse! He's crazy, but we let him ride! Thats my brother behind the horse.

Here is Bree in Duke. He was just broke and doesn't go very well. He's Jaxxi's horse. Bree always said she wouldn't ride, but I think the boots worked some magic. She rode Trigger all by herself forever and even trotted him!

Mr. Saw took his turn as well.

That's him in the background. The little horse with my dad is Scoot. He's the youngest. They rode him to, but he has to be led around. He's my favorite and so cute!

I can't wait until our week in Paden for Thanksgiving so the kids can ride and ride. I think this non cowboy momma is gonna have to learn to ride a horse :)
