Zoe's First Trip to the ER

Zoe decided that it was to quiet and boring around the house on Monday morning so she thought that a trip the emergency room would be fun. I was sitting on the couch and Zoe was walking around the front room and as she walked by me she tripped on something, most likely her own feet, and fell face first into a wood dresser. I knew that she hit really hard and that she would start crying so I leaned over and picked her up. I look at her face and she already had blood coming out of her forehead. She was still taking in a big breath of air before the cry finally came out. I picked her up and jumped over the baby gate and grabbed the closest towel to put pressure on her head. Then I went to the bathroom and got the infant Tylenol and gave her some. Then I went to the kitchen and grabbed the ice pack. I went back over the baby gate and sat down on the couch with her. I called my sister b/c I was suppose to watch her two boys while she took her third boy to the doctors and said "Um, Zoe just hit her head and I think I need to take her to the Urgent Care Clinic so I can't watch your boys." She said that they don't open till 11am. So I put Zoe down and got dressed and then noticed that Zoe had stopped crying and was playing with the buckle on her high chair with blood running down her face. I got a band-aid and put it on which made her start to cry again b/c I took her away from the buckles. My mom called and said to pick her up on the way which we did. She drove us to the ER in her van and Zoe watched Elmo and was just fine. We got there and they took us in after about 20 minutes. They cleaned up her cut and measured it. The nurse gave me some medicine to hold on it to numb the cut so that the doctor could put some "derma-aid", which is medical super glue, on it. Zoe did really well until Aaron and I had to hold her down so that doctor could squeeze her cut shut and put glue in it. Hopefully, it will heal up without any problems and it will not leave a very big scar since it is right in the middle of her forehead. It is almost in the same spot as the scar in my forehead. A little dried blood on her face and she still looks cute. A cut on her head and she is till blowing kisses. All cleaned up and ready for the doctor.

All done and ready to go home.

My Little Photographer

So I was downloading some pictures the other day and I came across some that I didn't recognize. Come to find out that Little Miss Zoe unzipped the camera bag, got the camera out, turned it on and took some pictures. I guess I need to make sure that I keep the camera out of reach for now on. She did take some pretty cute pictures and it makes some good memories. Here are some of Zoe's first pictures.

An amazing picture of my water bottle. It is even in focus!
Here is a close up of the snap on the front of her sleeper.
A beautiful shot up the nose and of the ceiling. I love that you can see her curly hair behind her.
Almost in focus. What a beautiful chin she has.
Finally we see the her. My little girl that gets into everything. Oh how I love her.

Baby Stepping

I'm baby stepping to update my blog. Yesterday was my birthday and I had a great day. I had an hour massage in the morning which was wonderful. Then Zoe and I went to see Aaron at work and say "Hi" to his co-workers. After that we went shopping and then met Aaron for a yummy lunch. Zoe took a 2 hour nap and I got to organize her clothes. When Aaron got home I went and picked up the babysitter. We went to dinner and then to the local high school to see their play. They did Grease and it was pretty good. The only thing that bothered me about it was that they seemed to have scene changes every 3 minutes. It felt like there wasn't move flow to the play b/c of it. Not sure if that is the way it always is or just how the high school versions are. All in all it was a pretty good day and I had a lot of fun.
