Rock stuck in lip...

So this happened.

We were on walk in the valley and Brooklyn tripped, and face planted. She was crying and had a bloody lip. I took her into the bathroom ad cleaned her up. There was a weird mark on her lip but I couldn't really tell what it was - blood blister? scab? cut? Darren took one look at her and says, "That's a rock." I was a little skeptical. We couldn't wipe it away, and it did feel a little hard, but what was it? (See top left pic)

Anyway, we took the kids for ice cream and she perked up and seemed okay. Put her to bed. She woke up at 10 pm just crying soooo hard and her lip was super swollen. (see top right pic). I was FaceTime calling my parents and my sister to try and figure out if there was something in there. Finally just took her to the ER.

The ER doctor had to give her some baby valium to sedate her some. Then two doctors and a nurse came in to hold her down (mama was crying too) and the one doctor used tweezers and pulled a little pebble out of her lip! It got wedged under the skin.

As soon as it came out (bottom left pic) the swelling went down and she was much happier. Took her home (not stitches!) and put her to bed. She was a little high from the hospital drugs and spent about thirty minutes talking nonsense in her bed which was hysterical. Anyway, she was fine the next day (bottom right). 

First haircuts, first dentist appointment

Finally took B&B in for their first haircut. They were beginning to look like feral urchins but I hated the idea of cutting their hair. Bailey loved her haircut and smiled the entire time. Brooklyn cried the entire time. We had the first dentist appointment a week later and the results were the same ha. One cried and one smiled. 

Morgan is one year old!!!

Morgie celebrated her first birthday last month. That came up fast!
She was officially walking for her party, albeit unsteadily. Bailey and Brooklyn like to imitate her and take shaky, unstable steps and fall dramatically into my arms. Hilarious.
Morgan did pretty good with her smash cake. The kid likes sugar, of course. 
About a week after the party she was walking pretty regularly, and now walks with no problems. She is also climbing on top of everything (you turn away for one second and she's on top of the picnic table about to leap to her death, laughing hysterically at your panic).  
At her one year appointment, she weight in at 23 lbs and height was just shy of 30 inches. Giant baby! (B&B were both 20 lbs 7 oz at one year and about 29 inches).
