Over the last week, I've been working to get Elinore a big girl bed.  About a week and a half ago, she, Ruth and I went to buy a new mattress.  Caleb got the new mattress and Elinore got the mattress he'd been using, because we had the box springs that go with it stored in the basement.  I rearranged her room to accommodate it and the crib.  I took he shopping for new sheets.  She played on the bed and got excited about it. 

After the Super Bowl Party we went to last night, we came home and she went to sleep in her big girl bed.  It was late and she was tired, so she stayed in bed and slept well!  I checked on her when I got up about 6:30 this morning and she was curled up sleeping soundly.  Then just before 7:30 I heard the thud and her immediate crying. 

I ran in to get her and we snuggled on her bed as she bawled.  We came out to the couch and it was clear pretty quickly she was hurting.  She wasn't just crying from being scared.  I cuddled her, gave her some Tylenol and called Daddy.  We snuggled some more, and she continued to have ouchies and cry, so we called Daddy again; he came home to the ER we headed. 

Elinore has a broken collarbone.  :(

As long as she's not moving too much she's content.  She got a donut after her hospital visit.  Ruth still makes her smile.  She loves being a big sister!  She's camped on the couch watching Daniel Tiger today. 

Doctor says she'll be back to normal in 3 weeks and no further treatment should be needed.  We follow up with her pediatrician at the end of the week.

You Are More Than You Know

I just finished this book. It was a good read, and I think for the right person incredibly helpful and insightful.I personally don't feel like I live my life in fear or controlled by fear too often, occasionally yes, but not regularly.  (Maybe I'm in denial?!)  This books focused on overcoming fear with faith, which is an excellent message."At this juncture of my life I'm not convinced normal is an obtainable or even desirable goal, but embracing our God-given uniqueness is. In fact, it's an adventure that leads us to embracing that we are more than we know because the Lord is greater - far greater - than we can ever imagine." -Patsy Clairmont

Do you have allergies?

Every time someone has sneezed over the weekend, Elinore asks "do you have allergies?"

Clearly she's learned about allergy season somewhere and is concerned about others and their allergies now.

It's cute.

Goodbye Sleep Sack

Sine Ruthie was born she has been swaddled or in a sleep sack every night.  A couple months ago the sitter stopped it at nap time for her, but she continued here at home.  When she was much younger we tried to stop wearing it but it ended in tears and we didn't think it was worth the fight.  Last night she said NO! when I went to put it on her.  She didn't want to wear it and wasn't going to.  Today has been the same, my baby is growing up all on her own!
