Madness Monday

So this is how my Monday started....

With blood and an emergency trip to the dentist. I told you our life is getting more exciting!

Early this morning, Autumn was coming to see me and ran right into the corner of our computer desk. Gashed her gum from her tooth up to the top of the gum. Luckily the doctor said her tooth felt good and because the gum is still in place, no stitches. It will just look disgusting for a while. The only thing we need to watch is the color of her tooth to see if nerves were damaged. Praying she won't get a dead tooth! After this, all I have to say is that she is one tough cookie. Crying when it first happened but only lasted a few seconds. While the dr. was checking her out, she was singing on the top of her lungs..."la la la la That's Elmo's world!", his response..."I think she is going to be fine!!" So, how's your Monday?!!

Somebody's watchin me!

Autumn has been a little sponge these past few months. It has been sooooo... fun! She watches everything you do and repeats most everything you say! If she doesn't fully get what you are doing or saying, she does her best to do so. Here are some funny things that she has done or tried to!!
* She watches us get ready in the mornings and one thing she sees is us putting on deodorant. Well now, every time she is up on the counter getting "ready", she grabs our deodorant and puts it behind her and starts rubbing it in her crack! LOL Where she got that deodorant goes up the rear, no clue!!! Have to work on that one!
*While Luke was changing her diaper, she touched the wall and he said it was "texture" on the wall. From then on, she pointed to the wall and says, "Cookie Monster"! I guess she heard monster instead!
*For a long time she has "helped" me every time I go to the bathroom! She loves to go in there with me and explore the cabinets, rip off the toilet paper, and flush for me. After she's done exploring, she gets a bunch of tissue for me, wads it up in her hand and hands it to me! It's been fine so far until the other day when I went to take it from her, and she moved my hand out of the way and tried to wipe me herself! haha Oh dear! Had to stop that one real quick. A little too helpful for mommy.
*She is into numbers BIG time. She loves to count to 20 all day long. A few weeks ago, I was putting her to bed and she looked at the digital clock in her room and said "9!" ummm...yes it is. Then, "5!" Ok smarty! Never knew she recognized numbers, but now she loves to tell time on her clock. During nighttime routine she will occasionally look at the clock and say the numbers. If it changes while she is looking, she says "Whoops! It changed. What is it?" and then will say the new number. I laugh because she repeats those phrases every single time.

Those are all I can think of right now, I know there is more and will be many more! I'm just proud of myself for posting something! Until next time...

Let's give this another try!!

Now that I feel like more is happening in my life to actually document about and be able to share with friends and family far away, I will try to keep this up with fun stories and pics. This Mother's Day was by far the best I have ever had. As it is only my 2nd, I can for sure say that since it did not contain a sick crying baby, a failed lunch out which ended in coming home and having chicken nuggets and mac and cheese for lunch!!I had a very blessed day of spending time with my family and going to Yukon to spend the whole day with my mom and siblings. And to top it all off, we actually got a family picture (rare occurence). I got to watch Autumn play in the sprinklers for the first time with her cousins and after watching that HUGE smile and yelps of excitement, I need to go get one! I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day! I will post again later with some fun quotes from Autumn. Until next time...
