Friday Gratitudes 9
Friday the 28th- Calm. Both Jesse and I were able to keep our calm when Alma smashed her face into our bed and blood was pouring our of her mouth. I think a tooth went through her lip, but the bleeding stopped pretty quickly, so we just gave her some ice and watched it. Scary to see our baby’s blood outside her body. So grateful that we didn’t freak out, and that we kept her from mirrors, so she didn’t freak out.
Saturday the 1st – Frozen. Again. We took Alma to her first movie and she loved it. I really hope she acquires my love for musicals.
Sunday the 2nd – Oscars.
Monday the 3rd – Dr.Bradshaw. We really have the best pediatrician in the world. She has been a hero of mine since my 19th birthday. We had Harriet’s 6 month check-up, and as always, Dr. Bradshaw was a breath of fresh air. I’m not sure she knows just how much she means to me, but that’s okay.
Tuesday the 4th – Toddlers. I love watching Alma interact with her friends. She is learning so much, making so many mistakes, doing so many strange things. I’m glad to see her with other odd little ducks.
Wednesday the 5th – Ashes. We didn’t actually make it to an Ash Wednesday service, but I was glad to know it was happening. And the season of Lent always feels sort of magical.
Thursday the 6th – Gymnastics. We met a couple sweet friends for the open-gym time at a local gym. These kids are so much fun, and so able!
