Sweet Cousins loving music

We got to hang out with Sarah Jane this afternoon, just Mary Elizabeth and me, while Carlye visited a friend and Caroline and John were at church. These two are going to have so much fun growing up together!

First ER Trip

She made it past her first birthday before her first ER trip, at least. :-) On our way into the room for library story time this morning, Elizabeth fell and hit something. At first, I thought her teeth cut through, but looking at the scratch leading to the deep cut, I now think she must have hit the corner of the door. Her lip bled and she cried for less than five minutes -- the crying and bleeding had both stopped by the time Ms. Jane got back with the ice. I called our pediatrician's office, and they told me to bring her in at 11 a.m. (The fall happend just before 10.) We stayed for story time, and Elizabeth happily played. The doctor thought we should see a plastic surgeon at Dell Children's Hospital, though, and called them to confirm. Off we went to Dell, with a stop to arrange an after preschool playdate for Caroline. We waited and waited at Dell's, finally seeing the doctor who said there was nothing to do. We're just to apply antibiotic cream often -- as often as she licks it, constantly! She may have a scar, but I hear that area heals pretty easily. Elizabeth LOVED socializing with the other kids in our non-sickie waiting room. She even walked up to the custodian asking to be picked up and let the sweet lady hold her for a while.

One Year Stats

Weight: 22lbs 3 oz (50-75%)
Height: 30 inches (75-90%)
Head: 47 1/4 cm (95%)
Pokes: two -- test iron levels (11.7) and chicken pox vax (not a whimper or a tear!)

teeth: eleven erupted plus two or three more starting to emerge
She has her eight front teeth fully in. Three of the four molars are out, but I think there is sill some swelling as they are big teeth. Fourth molar is almost out, too. And at least one of the canines is visible with another looking like it is about to poke its pointy whiteness through those sweet pink gums.
