Both Girls in the Same Cart - First Time

Craziness @ the Row

I'm glad to be a working mom! Did I say that? Yes I did! I'm sitting here realizing how lucky I am to be a working Mom. I mean I get the best of all worlds. I get to see my kids all the time and have a great job. Today there is the hustle and bustle of trick or treating at Santana Row. Crazy Mom's with every stroller imaginable push their ways from store to store to get free goodies. I think to myself...wow they all look crazy. Some looks stressed, dazed, tired, some look like June Cleaver. They all lug diaper bags, carry screaming kids, snotty faced, drooly one tooth laughing kids around...I just think...wow. I am lucky!! I wouldn't survive all of this ciaos on a regular basis.

Happy HALLOWEEN @ Santana Row

Addie and me are sitting at our not so favorite coffee shop at the row. We came to trick or treat, but we have opted out. This place is Crazy!!! We found a safe spot in the window.

The X-Ray

Yeap, without a doubt it's broken. The doctor said at her age this will heal and straighten out on it's own. Cast on for 2 weeks and then good as new!!

"It's Broken!!"

A cast and a lollipop

waiting for the doctor...it's hard cast day

Gravity Wins

I've heard that at some point in your child's growth they will learn how to climb out of their crib. Well, for Stella, that day was yesterday October 17, 2007. I think she mastered the climbing part but gravity got the best of her. Stella's forearm broke the fall and the fall broke her forearm. We weren't sure if it was a sprain or a fracture until I took her to Good Sam's ER today. Inbetween playing hide'n'seek with the doctors and nurses and telling people "it's broken", the experts were able to ascertain that she had a fracture. Amazingly, she didn't mind the whole hospital experience and even walked herself down the halls to the x-ray room (who needs a gurney when you're 22 months old). This shot shows the beginnings of the temporary splint. We have an appointment with the orthopedic doctor on Monday for the real deal - a cast. Mommy has put in her request for Pink or Black. I think Pink will be better for signing.

Pardon Me

I was driving to pick Susan up last week and had both girls in minimo. I said something to Stella which she didn't quite hear. Her response was "pardon me". Hoping this politeness carries on into her teens.
