Flashback Friday

It's Flashback Friday Ya'll!!!
(May Update)

After April's crazy busy month we were glad that May was a bit slower for us.  It is always nice to have lots of things on the agenda and to stay busy, but it is also so nice to have down time where there isn't much going on; May was that kind of month for us.  Danny didn't travel for work at all this month and Brooke only had 2 events.  Danny did go to a bachelor party at Ocean Isle Beach at the beginning of the month. Danny and I got to sneak away at the end of the month for the wedding of Philip, whose bachelor party Danny attended earlier in the month.  The wedding was in Mathews, Virginia.  Danny and I made a small trip out of it and stayed at The Tides Inn for some rest and relaxation.  

Emerson was invited to and attended several of her friends birthday parties; Laney and Ashton (family friends), Carter (Emerson's godbrother), and Haegan (one of Emerson's friends at school).  Emerson had a blast at all of them.  She is really starting to understand and enjoy birthday parties.....especially the CAKE!!! We also celebrated Mother's Day with both sets of grandparents.

The biggest and hardest event of May was Emerson's ear tube surgery.  We decided tubes were going to be the best option for Emerson because she was having way too many ear infections.  It turned out to be a great decision because she hasn't had one since (knock on wood).  Emerson was a trooper and did great for the surgery.  I think it was harder on Danny and me than it was on her.  We hated sending her back for the surgery but it only took about 15 minutes and they were done.  The worst part of the whole thing was Emerson coming out of the anesthesia...she was so out of it.  She finally came around though and we were on our way home.  It took her a bit of time to get used to putting her "Orange Things" (ear wax) in for each bath but she is doing great with them now and sometimes even prompts me to put them in before I've had the chance to do it.   

That's the Devers May in a nutshell; we hope you enjoy the pictures and until next week's Flashback.....
