Hip Hip Hooray

Malia is walking!! After about a week of little steps here and there, she finally walked across the room. It's funny to watch her, she gets so excited. But of course she thinks crawling is faster and believe me she is super fast crawler. I will be glad when she is walking all the time. No more dirty knees and worn out capris from crawling. We are very proud of our little girl

Visit From the Tooth Fairy

Over the weekend Bailee noticed she had a loose tooth. So each minute of the day you could find her wiggling and playing with the tooth with her tongue. By Monday that poor little tooth was hanging on by threads, but still Bailee would not pull it out. Even the incentive of receiving money didn't help. I think Bailee was too worried it would hurt if she pulled it out. Cameron finally talked well forced her to let him pull the tooth out. After one little pull it was OUT! Bailee was surprised that it didn't hurt at all. After all the drama all weekend she finally had a visit from the tooth fairy and received 1.00 for her precious little tooth.

Malia had her one year shots yesterday. I left Bailee and Braden at a neighbor's house and took Malia to see daddy at work. Poor girl, didn't know what was coming, all she knew was we were visiting daddy. We visited while the nurses were getting her shots ready and then we went into the room. She was supposed to have three shots, but there was a student nurse helping out along with Cameron's nurse and apparently the student made the shot too tight so instead of the vaccination going into Malia's arm it went all over the table. But yet she still had the poke of the needle. So Malia had to be poked twice in the arm and once in each leg. Malia was just hysterical. Of course the nurses felt bad. I took Malia home and she fell asleep in the car and I promised to take the kids to the park to eat lunch so I couldn't lay Malia down. Thank goodness we parked in the shade at the park and I let Malia sleep in the car with the door open and we ate lunch on the grass beside the car. Once she had her little nap she was happy again.
Cameron came home and had a little surprise for Malia. His nurse felt so bad that she went to the store and bought Malia a doll. I thought that was very nice of her and I'm glad Cameron has such good nurses to help him out. It's sad to think we put our kids through pain so they can be healthy later on but I will take a little pain over having a serious illness any day. Luckily we have a few more months until our next visit to the doctor.
