Surprise, It's Surgery!

Today is Ledger's 3-month birthday. We had planned to take a photo of him with his 3-month sign (like last month) but he was too wiped out from a busy evening to photograph. We will take the picture in the morning and post it as soon as possible. Ledger continues to get bigger and develop his motor control. We think that he is very strong for his age -- but don't all parents think that their kid is "advanced"? LOL. :) Today we put him in our Baby Einstein jumper and activity seat. He really liked being supported in a standing position with his feet on the ground and was really interested in all of the toys! He's not quite ready to "jump" in it yet... but he's big enough to keep himself upright really easily -- as you can see from the photos.

In other family news, I had a post-partum doctor's visit today and my OB is concerned with the amount of scarring that has occurred since my episiotomy during delivery. In order to keep everything in working order, he decided to schedule me for an outpatient perineal repair surgery. Luckily for me, they had an opening right away and I will be undergoing a very minor outpatient procedure tomorrow. This is only the 3rd time I've ever been under anesthesia, so it's a little nerve-wracking... but I know it'll come out OK. The doctor made it sound like I wouldn't be in too much pain afterwards, so I am still planning on working Friday morning. Keep your fingers crossed for me! :)


  1. Love the pictures. You make it sound like 3 times is not very many. ha Most people (like me) have never been under. I remember gallbladder, what is the other time? Good luck. Talk to you soon.

  2. Wisdom teeth. You were under for that too!
