In October I was still having a lot of complications with my health in this pregnancy. After a lot of testing my mid-wife said that it was critical to the baby that I have my gall bladder removed. It was a pretty intense surgery and it took a long time to really recover. Luckily the baby was completely fine and so far my pregnancy continues to improve. Then Miles decided that he wanted to be just like me and get surgery too! So since his gall bladder was just fine he got "otoplatsty." Ok, really it's a surgery he has wanted his whole life. He basically got his ears pinned back. The surgery took about 2-3 hours and he had to wear a turban for a week afterwords, but other than that it has been healing quite nicely.

The night before his surgery I was feeling kinda sad because this was how I had known him since we were 13! I've always loved his ears and I wasn't ready to commit. haha I've always thought he was incredibly handsome! He assured me that this was something he really really wanted even needed in his life. So far this surgery has obviously given him some confidence that he felt was lacking. I've noticed a little more bounce in his step and he now wears hats! He HATED hats before. He looks amazing!

Top 10 in 2010

So I woke up this morning at 5:30 when Miles left for work and I was thinking about how amazing this year has been for us! We have been so blessed and are excited for the opportunities that lie ahead. Then I was thinking that only close friends and family really know about the surgery that Miles had (which was a pretty big deal) and wondering how I was going to let other know... I thought that I should really be better about doing this blog thing...

So...here I am blogging. I have to be honest, when I go to other people's blogs I don't really read it if they have a lot of words and not very many pictures. So I will soon post some pictures but as for now here are the top 10 things that happened this year...(in no particular order.) 10. Miles' parents and brother Mitchell came to visit us in June

9. My parents returned home from serving a 3 year mission as Mission Presidents in Denver, CO

8. On are 1 year anniversary, which was also Father's Day, we found out we were expecting a baby!!! To which we later found out IT'S A BOY due on Feb 24, 2011

7. We traveled the amazing Oregon Coast

6. We went to most of the U of U home football games

5. Miles hiked Angels Landing in Zion and saw the Grand Canyon for the first time

4. Babies Eli (nephew), McKenna (niece), and Mabel (niece) were born

3. Surgery #1: I got my gall bladder out when I was 19 weeks pregnant

2. Surgery #2: Miles got "otoplasty", which is his ears pinned back, something he's wanted his whole life!
