Eye Safety!

As many of you know babies have extremely sharp little finger nails! Our little E is no exception and has demonstrated that fact on more than one occasion.

This past Friday we were playing with her new doll house and the next thing I know, I was calling my eye doctor for an emergency exam. Elise had tripped and poked me right in the same eye she had scratched a few weeks prior. Only this time it was not just a scratch, it was a large tear! After a few days of wearing a protective contact, and a few drops of what I liken to an epidural for the eye, I am on the mend!

Lesson learned. I wanted to pass it on in hopes that others may avoid the same fate. Keep those little nails short and trim, and lookout!

I have to say a big Thank You to my fabulous eye doctors, you both made the process as painless as possible.

A Christmas Story

Christmas Eve was with my parents. My brother and his new fiance were also there. We had a fantastic time. Good food, good company!

That night we went home and and prepared for Santa. E was sound asleep and we set up her new doll house under the tree, along with a few wrapped presents. The next morning she woke up bright and early, and we made our way to the Christmas tree. She slowly walked toward then tree, then realized what was under it, her new doll house. She was so excited!
Later Christmas morning, My parents and brother and fiance came over for breakfast and to give E her Grand-Santa present. It was a bright red wagon, complete with folding seats and cup holders! Where was this when we were young? She loved it and wanted to take a ride right away.
The afternoon was spent with my husband's family. Elise enjoyed getting even more presents before finally wanting to lay down and take a nap.

We had a great Christmas!
I hope you had a nice Christmas and have a very happy and safe New Year!

Carol's Heirloom Collection...

Check out Carol's Heirloom Collection... It is full of nostalgia, cute ideas, and wonderful stories. As I posted before, E recently turned one. For her birthday, Carol made this beautiful I Spy quilt! Thanks again for the precious keepsake Auntie Carol!

November Recap: Happy First Birthday E!

November proved to be a very busy month for our little family. Our sweet baby girl turned one! We had a fantastic day celebrating with family and friends. E loved every minute of it, well all but the cake part!

We researched bakeries to find just the right one to make her first birthday cake, and finally found it. (I recommend Drew's Pastry Place. They use all natural ingredients, and no preservatives.) We were so excited about her first cake and she did not want a single bite! Eventually she did try a few pieces.
