I needed a little bit more flexibility so I’m jumping ship over to blogger! I hope you’ll follow me there!
It’s safe to say my girls don’t look that much a like…. but, damn they are beautiful!
My oldest baby had her first injury this weekend. Don’t get me wrong she’s had some bumps and bruises, but nothing that requires us to go to urgent care or causes THAT much pain. Burns hurt! I have never experienced such heartbreak. All the things that have ever happened to me don’t even come close to seeing my daughter in that much pain.
How did it happen?! Well, I very rarely ask my husband to help me cook anything… he’s just not a good cooker! I asked him to cook the hamburger because I was tending to the baby and needed to pump. He let Liv watch him and she had pulled up a chair. She knows what hot means so he wasn’t worried about her so much. He went to drain the meat and when he turned his back she put her hand on the stove. I’m thinking since we have a glass top and she didn’t see fire, she wasn’t still thinking that it was hot…
She started screaming and crying and it was just sad. Burns really hurt and there was nothing we could do. We put her hand in cool water which did help but not all the way. I was crying with her. It was upsetting. No parent ever wants to see their child hurt. I ended up deciding to take her to urgent care since it was bubbling up and she was in so much pain. She wouldn’t let me get her dressed so, I just grabbed a dress out of the closet and we went. On the way there I called my Mom and Grandma to tell them about what happened. They both met me there. I am thankful for my supportive family!
We got there and checked in. She is my tough girl, and once she calmed down, she played while waiting to see the doctor. She just waved her hand to get a breeze and said ‘ouch it hurts’ every few minutes.
There wasn’t much the doctor could do but, she did give us a prescription for when the blisters popped. She also told me to give her some Tylenol for pain.
Once we came home I gave her the Tylenol and I totally let her sleep in my bed.
And so, nothing has EVER been as heartbreaking as seeing her that hurt. Burns are seriously the worst and no 2 year old should ever feel that. I can’t imagine what her little self was thinking while experiencing being burned. I wish I could have taken it away and made it all better. I know there will be injures that happen, it’s a part of life, but it really sucks! I can’t put them in a bubble to protect them. Although…
1.Vera Bradley Make a Change Baby Bag It is the most amazing thing ever! I wish I had known about it awesomeness with my first little one! It’s so nice and durable and I can wash it! It has a removable changing pad and lots of compartments. I would recommend it to anyone trying to find that perfect diaper bag!
2. I totally made my own granola bars this week and they were a big hit! They taste amazing and are pretty healthy… no high fructose corn syrup! They are cranberry, peanut, pecan with chia seeds. My husband even enjoyed them! This is something I definitely keep doing. I can’t wait to experiment with different flavors!!
3. 4 month check-up this week for T2. My little preemie baby is getting so big! She weighed in at 11 lbs and 7 oz! I have to say that I am so happy that she is catching up! She’s still only 5% for weight but, she’s getting there! She is however 50% for height! I think I’m going to have another tall girl like her sister!!
4. I am working on everything I can to get Livvy’s sleep schedule back on track. She has totally regressed and now wakes up at night and doesn’t go back to sleep! I received some suggestions from her pediatrician and I am excited to see how it goes!
5. Ayla’s Baptism is Sunday! I am super excited to have her Christened and then have family and friends over to celebrate! I will be posting all about it afterwards! God Bless my little Angel!
My husband’s parents went out of town and asked us to house sit. We were thrilled. They live out in the country and have an amazing yard! It was definitely a week of adventures.
My husband still went into work everyday… just a longer drive. The girls and I stayed there. I have to say that there are some amazing things about that house and yard and also, some not so Livvy friendly things as well.
My child got into EVERYTHING she could! If there was a marker or pen around she found it! She was in and out of drawers and my goodness that kid is something else.
They have a kiddie pool out on their front porch and Livvy loved it. Ayla and I chilled and watched her play in the water. I even got in a bathing suit and tried to get some color on my pearly whites!
We celebrated the 4th of July that week. I dressed the girls up in their outfits and they looked so cute! Livvy’s outfit didn’t last long but, luckily I had another for the evening!
The 4th was amazing being out in the middle of nowhere to shoot off fireworks and be loud! We had some friends over and really had a great time.
It was a really good week and a nice change of pace. The girls got worn out being outside so much and I will definitely be happy to house sit in the future!
