Here is a couple of the things I am most thankful for....

Megan's first injury!!!

Well, we made it! Megan injured herself this weekend, and I am sure it is the first of many... but we made it through this one with ease. Friday afternoon at Nana's, Megan was taking her sock off by herself and yanked it off and ended up hitting herself in the eye, either with her fist, fingernail, or sock... we aren't sure. Matt was there and said he couldn't get her to calm down much or to even open her eyes much after it happened, so since she couldn't really open her eye much (and it was nap time anyways), she laid down for her afternoon nap and fell asleep. Matt went back to work, and Nana watched her the rest of the afternoon. I got off early and headed over to pick her up from Nana's and was greeted with a sad little face at the door and a runny and puffy eye. So, off to the doctor we went. I mean, it was the start of the weekend after all, and we really didn't want to be questioning if we should have had this checked out or not, etc... so just to give us peace of mind, I called and got her into the doctor just before they closed for the day... the doctor saw her immediately and put some sort of yellow glow-in-the-dark dye in her eye and turned on a black light to check her eye out. Yep, there it was, I could see it clear as day. She had a small little cut on her eye. He called it a Corneal Abrasion. So, in order for her eye to heal itself (which with this kind of thing, it usually heals itself within 24 hours) they had to patch her eye up so she wouldn't be tempted to rub it or scratch it and worsen the cut. She took it in stride, and actually left the patch on all night! We went back to the doctor this morning, and went through the whole black light process again, and she is all better now! No more little cut, and no more pirate princess! We made it through her first injury with ease!!!

Update - 10 months????

10 Months... can it be possible??? Megan is almost 10 months old! Wow, it is amazing how time flies! I can't believe she is so big, I can't even start to think about her 1st birthday - my baby girl cannot be almost turning 1!!! She has learned so much and has gone from a baby to a toddler in the past few months. She is crawling everywhere and even though she is not walking, she definitely toddles around! I think walking is the next thing on this girl's list though. She has begun to stand alone now for a few seconds at a time, and is a pro at walking behind her walker. She is waving, clapping, saying "Mama" and "Dada", dancing to music, crawling up steps, helping me get her dressed (putting her arms in the arm holes when I put a shirt on her), begging for food, going after the dog's food whenever she is near it, and the list goes on... She loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and recognizes the Disney Channel pretty much as soon as you turn it on. She also loves the Backyardigans, Handy Manny, and she likes Special Agent Oso too! I am going to start showing her Toy Story soon to see if she likes it!

I can't believe how much this little girl has changed our lives in just 10 months! Everything revolves around her now, and we love it! For example, instead of going out to dinner and a movie on a random Friday night, we find ourselves going to Fazoli's (where she can get spaghetti), and hitting Babies R' Us to see if she has any interest in any of the toys! My how things change! I am sure we will have to hit Babies R' Us less frequently as she gets bigger though, or she will start wanting a new toy every weekend! Right now we tell her, you can have anything in the store, you just have to ask for it!...:) I am sure that will change soon - we won't be able to tell her that anymore when her vocabulary begins to develop..ha :)!

Life is pretty much great right now! I am still getting to work from home 2 days a week, and Nana watches Megan the other 3 days! Matt and I are both home every weekend and every night and get to spend lots of time with our girl!

Oh, recently we went to the beach with Nana and Gramps... here is a cute pic from our trip!

That's all for now!
