queen of the jungle

monkey girl here likes to play on the playground without her shoes.  

she climbs,
she swings,
she jumps,
she runs.

at least she is getting a lot more capable so her fearless spirit is a tad bit less dangerous than it used to be.....

i'm hoping we can make it through the rest of the summer without any more injuries.  ;)

blaire's boo boo

here they are.  the staples in the back of my daughter's little head.

the first emergency injury that either of my children has had.
well, i guess we can cross that off my list.  
no need to repeat the experience

really her hair pretty much covers it up, and now, two days later, she is acting completely normal.  she doesn't seem to even notice it, except for when she is laying down to get her diaper changed or to go to bed, and then she needs to turn her head to the side so it doesn't put pressure on it.

she is back to smiles and busyness and independent ideas.

and she is quite proud of herself for mastering this little shape puzzle this morning!

by the way - if you were curious - she fell on the stage at bandshell park and landed on the corner of one of the metal risers.  she was there with her big brother and their nanny as i was working at the hospital at the time.  our nanny did a stellar job of keeping everyone calm and getting her to the clinic to meet me and get those few staples.  blaire was a rockstar throughout the office visit (even without her taggie or paci), and we were all home and moving on with naptime in no time.  

hooray for resilient children!

overnight, this little girl grew up.  
she went from a chubby little babe to a lanky little girl.  
this morning as i watched her play, i was just struck by how LONG everything is getting - her legs, her arms, her hair.....

she is 20 months old.

she is officially almost two. years. old.


i hope you keep growing longer, and even pass me up someday little girl.  

you are such a joy!!  ;)
