I’m Getting MORE Grey Hair!

Alixandrea is doing wonderful!

Back to herself for the most part…yet wanting to be held a bit more which Is understandable.

We’ve kept her in a bubble of sorts making sure she doesn’t bump that cheek or set down hard as babies do.  The jarring movements are uncomfortable and can cause unwanted swelling for the next few days.  She had a few un-wrapped Christmas gifts that hadn’t been out of the box yet so Isaiah opened one for her yesterday.  She was happily playing with the new toy and I stepped in the kitchen to fill her sippy cup.  Mid pour, I heard a shuffling noise and when I turned around this is what I found. Boy howdy was she mad when I tried to take her off that box…..so I hovered. It’s hard finding the right balance of letting her do what a baby does and keep her in quiet play….for a few days at least LOL!


She is a climber.  Nothing makes her happier than standing on a box, booster seat or raised area.

My oldest daughter has a fireplace hearth (unused) that is about 4 ft wide and 3 ft deep.  They kept it covered and padded with blankets…It’s Alix favorite place to stand in their house. So I’m sure this box is easy peasy to her but nerve wracking to me.

Alix says Hi!  And thank you for all the healing prayers

The stitches are so tiny its hard to tell there’s so many in such a tiny cheek.

Not the best close up.  She shy’s away from anyone looking at that cheek. I think she’s worried her mama will try to clean it or put more ointment on it. Looking directly at the stitches has her turning away.  The good news is as young as she is they feel it will heal well with very faint (if any scaring). 

From all of us, Thank You for all the healing thoughts and prayers

  1. Glad she's doing better! Best wishes for 2013!

  2. Awww she is adorable even with the cut! Try not to stress too much which will add more grey hair. She is a tough little fighter and will come out being just fine. Give her a hug for me!

  3. What a sweet little one. Such a cute little baby face, even with the cut. I have to admit to not looking too close. I'm a bit squeamish when it comes to little ones. Grandchildren seemed to give me more grey hair than my children. Great job being strong, you and Mama, while you had to. Put your feet up now, well, while she is napping. Go ahead and hover. You'll look back and wish you still had her there to hover over. They grow too fast. I keep telling myself I'll have time to do other things later. Right now the babies are growing up. And she won't remember this at all. Hey, how is the path to the top of your refrigerator? I found my boys up there once. They used the drawers as stair steps to the counter and from there to the top of the fridge. Just saying you might want to check that ;)

  4. Glad she's doing ok, she'll no doubt have more 'war wounds' as she grows up. When Michael was small he used to throw himself around like a lunatic, always thought he would be a stunt man, he isn't but he does play rugby, it never really get's easier watching them get hurt, but I've learnt to not go racing onto the pitch when he's under a big pile of bodies! I don't think my strapping soon to be 21 lad would appreciate his mummy rushing to his aid but he's very willing to help me part with my cash!! :D

  5. Don't you sometimes wonder how those little ones manage to grow up? She had a really close call though. I can't even hardly bear to write what might have happened if her wounds had been somewhere else on her little darling face.

    I remember one incident with my own daughter when she was two. She fell flat on her face off a coffee table. I don't think I'll ever forget the sound her head made when it hit the tiled floor. We were lucky, she only split her bottom lip. For some reason, that one really affected me and I think I came close to passing out. After it was all over, of course. At least we don't fall apart until we know the babes are okay.

  6. Oh my goodness what a sweet little girl. Her accident must have been frightening and heartbreaking for you all.

    I fell behind on blog visits over the holidays and need to catch up to find out how this precious little one cut her cheek. I'm so sorry that I didn't know when I happened. My prayers certainly would have been added to the many others.

    p.s. Boxes ARE the gift when you are so tiny ;-)


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
