Violet's Big Day

Today started out awesome.

Yay! Mama's big girl. She went to bed at 8, had a bottle at 10:30 and went to sleep until morning. This is the longest she has slept overnight.



Then that thing you think will never happen to you happens....you turn your back for a minute and the most sickening thump that will repeat for years in your mind over and over again....sigh.



Yes folks, Violet fell off my bed. Sigh. Of course I panic and call the pediatrician and the nurse and I decide to move up her six month appointment to today to ease my mind.



I frantically get her and myself ready and fly to the office. Everything's is fine, no bumps, not even a bruise.



She is 17lbs 9.5oz and 26.5 inches long. My big girl is growing great and the doctor was amazed she is already crawling. Then they ask if I still want to get her ears pierced as I had scheduled that for this appointment.



What the heck I think, get all the bad stuff done in one day. My poor baby girl fell off the bed, had her ears pierced and four shots. :(. It was a rough appointment but she is a champ and smiling again.

My Mama guilt is still there but I know she is okay. Plus my Mom admitted that I rolled off the couch when I was a baby so it happens.
Since tomorrow is her official six month Birthday, here is a Violet retrospective.
This picture just makes my heart ache, the time goes by way too fast.

  1. What a super cutie you've got! Isn't it frightening when babies get hurt? You have no idea how many bumps she'll get when mobility kicks in. My advice is to keep a bag of frozen peas around at all times to press on boo boos. Believe me, we use our bag almost every other day. Ouch! Found your blog from Monkeys & Tutus. Happy Wednesday, Leslie.

  15. She is super cute, but you knew that! In case you are curious as to which is my favorite picture (being you don't know me, that's a stretch), it is the chef's hat shot. Enjoy buying earrings!

  17. I really regret not taking pictures like this with my son, to mark each week of month. Thanks for sharing at the Photo show and tell last week. Can't wait to see what you have to share this week! We are going with an "animal" theme this week--or if your kids are as wild as mine can be--animal-like! The link will be live later tonight. Thanks again,
    Nancy

  19. My little girl pulled a TV tray down on her face at about 10 months and got the worst black eye. I definitely had some Mommy guilt with that one!

    Your little girl is so adorable! Violet is on our short list for names for Baby #2...whenever that is. Haha.
