Will you just look at that sweet baby? Unfortunately for her, she had a little accident...
And ended up in a cast:( She took a tumble all the way down the stairs, we were so lucky nothing else happened to her! She just doesn't have enough brains yet to know that if you try to scoot down the stairs, it will hurt. Pearl feels terrible, she had taken her upstairs while I was cooking dinner and didn't close the gate. There will be no more unauthorized baby movement around here.
Fortunately, it was a mild fracture, in fact, the pediatritian didn't even catch it, the radiologist found it and I got a call the next day.
I get comments a lot. It is the cutest little cast you've ever seen, if it wasn't so sad, it'd be something to smile about. I made sure to take pictures while it's still cute, one week later and it's pretty gross. We're counting down the days until it's gone (she has to have it for 5 weeks.)
I think the saddest part is that she's supposed to be working on standing and crawling... but her ankle hurts too, so I haven't been pushing it, we'll meet with the PT soon and get her advice. Other than that, it doesn't seem to be holding her back much. She's getting good at feeding with her left hand, she does her little scoot with a CLUNK CLUNK throughout the house, and finds that she can still do important things...
like single-handedly removing all of the pea gravel from the playground (Maryann, remember how that was Sidon's favorite thing to do?) and playing with her grandpa.
How we love this sweet, good natured little girl!
