Walking her lion :)
My baby got her first booboo (with me anyway) today. Poor thing was all ready to go to the park when she took a spill. She was walking and holding her juice bottle when she tripped over her lion and down she went face first on her bottle. I picked her up right away as she cried and saw blood spilling from her mouth. Not a lot but still! She then was silent building up to the big cry while I cuddled her and reassured her. She does that sometimes, takes a breath and all is silent til the big cry scream rings out. This time she held her breath a long time, I was holding her next to the sink and her face and lips got purple! Totally freaked me out! I yelled breath Abby and she finally let her cry out! Poor baby. She has done that before when really upset (rarely) but never that long or til her face and lips got purple! Has any one else had their child do this? What do I do?? Lord I hope she never does it again.....
She then let me cuddle her and calmed right down, I put a cold rag to her mouth and saw a little cut on her lip, about 1/4 cm at most. It was oozing so I got out one of her teething rings from the fridge. She liked that and the oozing of blood stopped. Then once she was calm and distracted I gave her some tylenol and some cold juice and then she was fine. Acted like nothing had happened. That took several years off of me tho.
Here she is shortly after her fall drinking her juice. I had to change her outfit cause the sweater had blood on it but didn't she look cute :)
Then we went on to the park since she seemed fine. It was 55 degrees today! The warmest since she has been home. I put her on the swing and she loved it :):)
If you look close you can see her lip :(
I put her down on the grass to see what she would do. She didn't mind it. I had heard that some adopted children do.
We also tried the slide but the swings were definately the big hit of the day.
Then we went for a little walk. My baby fell asleep. It was her nap time by then. Mom if you are reading this, bring us the big stroller next time you come.
Last night was her first night sleeping in her own room in her own crib. We had been doing the pack and play in my room up til then. I don't think she was really comfy tho so yesterday we did a trile run using her crib at nap time and she did fine. Last night I decided to try her first night time in her crib. I felt sad tho, and was afraid something might happen to her or what if I don't hear her if she cries?? I know, I am a geek but I really considered taking her out and putting her back in the pack and play in my room. It felt strange after sharing a room with her for 16 days. So I decided to bunk down in her room for the night just in case she needed me. She did fine, just up once for a bottle then right back down. me on the other hand did not have a good night sleep. The floor was hard. So tonight I put her in her own crib again but I will be sleeping in my bed tonight or maybe on the couch???? I know.......... baby steps :)
