Our Good Days and Bad

Makray has been really busy lately. Last Tuesday I was coming down the stairs and watched him attempt to jump rope his sisters blanket, his feet went out from under him and I heard a SPLAT! He wasn't really crying and I figured he was ok, I told him to lay down on the couch and I would check him in a minute. I got sissy's blanket and went upstairs to put her to bed. When I came back down, Mak seemed pretty calm and I asked if he was ok...that's when I saw blood dripping down my couch. I flipped him over... and there was his chin BONE. He had split his chin WIDE OPEN. So after I gave myself the WORST MOTHER OF THE YEAR award, we ran to the emergency room.

Ten stitches later... he was feeling pretty good.  He was such a trooper.  He was calm the entire time, and held my hand while they sewed him up.  He was really surprised when they were threw that the Doctor used a fish hook to sew him up hahaha.
Also Makray got to go to his first day of preschool this week. (stitches and all)  He has been so so excited for so long, he felt like this day would never come.  His daddy got him a brand new Batman backpack so he will surely be the coolest kid in class.
He did WAY better than mom.  He went in and found his cubby and was relieved that someone is FINALLY going to trust him with some scissors.
Makray grew up over night, and I was truly surprised how horrible it felt. 

Violet's First Birthday

Violet turned 1 last week.  It is so hard to believe she is all grown up.  Well alright she isn't grown up at all... she is still just our cuddly little baby who has no desire what so ever to grow up, she still prefers to be packed around like an infant which is fine with me.

She has come a really long way from the tiny little preemie who couldn't breath on her own

Violet's baby doll.  Violet loves babies, real or pretend. 

A few things about our one year old.
-She is very very very sassy!  She makes me a little insane, she loves attention and is furious if anyone else is getting some.  She knows what she wants and will figure out how to get it.  Usually by screaming.  She is very flirty and quite the charmer.
-She is a champ when it comes to eating.  She has quickly moved from the 1st percentile to almost average.
-She loves her Mak Mak.  They continue to be close buddies... and when she is really upset with mom (which is regularly) she always pouts to Makray.
- She has no desire to walk... she will just pick her feet off the ground when you try.
-She says mama, dada, kitty kitty, doggy, cheese, Mak Mak, baby, num num, her most favorite MINE!!!!
- She is beautiful and perfect in every way and she rules our household.  (while i pull out my hair)
