Smith is just the cutest most irresistible little dude ever. He thinks he is SO big and is so independent!! His personality is puzzling because he is funny, sweet, loving, and at the same time is the tantrum King! He loves playing anything with his big bro and sis. Oh I love my sweet guy!!
Here he is playing baseball with Zane and Emmy. He learns a lot by watching them.
Here is the saddest little face...
Since he was born 18 months ago, Smith has had about 12 ear infections. He had a first set of tubes put into his ears and they only stayed in for about 5 months. The instant they fell out, he started getting sick and getting infections. So, this time, they put new tubes in but also thought it might help more to take his adenoids out.
He couldn't eat or drink until he went to surgery around 8 am. Since we had to wake him up at 6, that was a long time for him to hold on. He did way better than we ever expected. I think he was excited to have mom and dad all to himself. And he was happy to run around the hospital so early in the morning.
In the waiting room, he was the best little patient. He held super still, let them check him out, etc. Then, they gave him a dose of meds that made him a little drowsy and tipsy so that when they took him from us, he wouldn't get upset. And it worked. LOL. He got super mellow and just felt weird so it was no big deal going back for surgery. Everything went great, except he woke up extremely upset. He cried and screamed and hit and kicked and basically was out of his mind for a while afterwards, but once we got home, he was fine. By the end of that day, he was almost acting like nothing ever happened. The following days, he was up and down, but overall a good recovery.
