EEEEEEEEEEK! Well Hope finally fell the bed! I heard her cry after a nap (she usually wakes up grumpy) and with the kind of cry she let out this time I knew she had fallen...when I finally turned her around to take a look I was horrified to see a swollen purple/blue cheek...I was so scared that I took her to ER. Hope is a tough one, but she was hurt..we arrived att he ER at 5:30 pm and waited till midnight to be told that her mandible was fractured and that she needed surgery...I was shocked and so upset with myself and the staff that they had taken so long to explain this to us. It gets worse-they don't have the specialist there and we need to be transported to another hospital...we get transported and by this time we are all soooooooo tired...when we reach the other hospital, the specialist takes yet another CT scan of Hope (this is her 3rd CT scan and x ray later) they quickly tell us..that Hope has no fracture! What is going on? I know I prayed hard for Hope so that she wouldn't need surgery..and I was soo relieved! I could have stayed 2 days...if the outcome was going to be positive.

As for the other hospital and its craziness,...I have nothing too positive to say ( I was considering working there once..but not anymore!)

Sigghhhh..I figure I post this since this has been the biggest scare so far in Hope's life thus far. Praise GOD!

P.S. I can't wait till school starts..I am going out of my mind each day with every crazy thing that has happend over the summer! HeHe..I'm such a complainer!

She is fine today...she's just black & blue now...still climbing and jumping around..

Seriously thinking...need your help!

Hope is trying to lift herself out of crib at times, and she fell once. I know she hates her crib sometimes because she hates restraint...but should I transition her to her big girl bed at 2 1/2? It would give me more space in her playroom, but she'd be everywhere....groannn. Dunno what to do? What are you guys doing with your lil babies?

More Snaps..

Meet the Gang this summer!

We're still around...

Kids are running around wild this is crazy with 4!

Hope is fabulous as usual and I really have to show the great snaps we have of her in blacknwhites...she is so gorgeous!
(I shouldn't be saying this about my own daughter-but hey, I can't helpt it!)

She is now trying to form phrases with us, and she even speaks spanish and understands well. She is taking out all her clothes these days and wanting to put all of it on and every shoe as well....she loves dress up and make up. She loves to massage daddy's back and feet..eyyyy...

She is always quite occupied with her brothers who spoil her rotten.

Her preferences in food have changed slightly, I catch her feeding the dog! She is not crazy about certain meats...she does love her eggs and fruits and veggies and tuna.

She lets me do her hair now and is very patient and proud once I am done. She always says 'Thank You'..which melts my heart everytime. Just a special little baby doll!

I thank God all the time for my kids, I know I am truly fortunate to have such a bunch, who are healthy and loving.

I hope everyone's summer is going great-the boys will start flag football in 2 weeks...Hope will probably start gymnastics in the fall with Noah.
