Never a Dull Moment

This has been an exhausting weekend, we helped Autumn move in her new place on Saturday and today I went through all the girls clothes, I am not even done totally and I spent a good 5 hours between the two rooms...I am ready to have a huge garage sale come spring. Our neighborhood has one planned for 5/4...this may actually be the first year I am prepared.


Anyway I am just hanging out listening to Tate scream herself to sleep like she does every night. Normally I do not listen but tonight I am thinking it is a good idea since she fell head over heel down 14 wooden stairs, yep the front staircase of coarse that would be our luck no need to fall down the carpeted stairs...I knew that no baby gates would get us eventually and today it did. Now maybe Chris well put up the gate we have and buy so more for the rest of the stairs ( we only have three flights all no less then 13 stairs and only the bottom flight has carpet, not even a runner on the others ) I guess if he won't listen to me about gates before today maybe he'll listen to the paramedic that was in our living room around 6:30 this evening. I' d take a picture of the staircase to show you but It would just be embarrassing. Those who have been here know how I must have been freaking... Chris had to keep his cool because Emma and I were both a mess along with Tatum those are some pretty steep stairs.


Chris thinks we are one step away from social services being called since the cop that answered the 911 call was the same one that was here last weekend for Emma's 911 hang up call.... I think she was testing how it worked because we had no clue she even called until they called us back to let us know they dispatched an officer....great huh. Anyway...

Tatum has a huge black and blue bump on the front of her forehead that took all of 4 mins to show up and had a bloody noise, she was absolutely hysterical ( which is actually a good thing for the situation) so the medics recommended that we take her to the ER instead of traumatising her more with a ambulance ride she was responsive and never lost consciousness or threw up so they thought she would be fine if we took her to instead of them.

Needless to say we spent he remainder of our evening there. The Dr. thinks she is fine by the time he saw her she was pretty much her normal self but did recommend that I take her into the pediatrician's office in the morning. To be honest think I was as shook up as she was. I think she is going to be just fine she had no trouble throwing down a happy meal around 9:30 when we got home, poor kids got a very late dinner since that was where we were headed when all this happened.


The two funny thing we learned from this is that our local hospital has a Dr. Pepper..no joke we heard him paged, Emma got a kick out of that, and Tatum totally knows what a hospital and a Dr. is and she is not so fond of them or anything that they do. She ripped that little red O2 reader off her foot just has fast as they put it on and wanted no parts of an ID bracelet...Awe the ID bracelet another one fore the collection...

I feel so bad when she cries herself to sleep but I really have no choice if I let her sleep with me she just moves around usually falls off the bed and finally falls asleep after like 2 hours...Once she is asleep she is out but getting her to go to sleep has never been easy for us.

At least she wakes up happy..... We actually had to wake her up on her birthday so she could open her presents before my Mom and sister had to leave, look happiest little thing ever...



Anyway here are a few of the pictures from her b-day...Like the Ghetto candles, what can you do I forgot to buy some..good thing she was only turning two, just imagine if I forget for Emma and have to put five candle sticks in there...HA HA that would be one holey cake!!! Welp she is finally asleep and all is well, I can hear her breathing and no vomit... I hope her head doesn't look worse in the morning...I'll try and get a picture of it...trust me it is not pretty, my poor little princess...

Oh dear!!
One thing i have learned through motherhood is that bruises, bumps and black eyes often seem worse than they are and heal suprisingly quickly! I hope she is all smiles tomorrow :)
Ive gotta laugh at the 911 call - I got woken at 5am by a call back from 000 telling me a young child had phoned them and said something about a spider at the neighbours house!!! How embarressing!!!(i blame pre-school for teaching them to dial before they are ready to understand what an emergancy actually is) now i keep the phone out of reach...

Poor Tate!!!! I hope she is doing better today...

Lisa, we had baby proofing issues ourselves last night...is it karma? Chris and Scott can go buy the stuff together.

Gotta agree with Katie...Jason DID call 911 but that was accidental...after learning about 911 in preschool, Michael WANTED (but didn't) to call because he was stuck on a puzzle and it was an "emergency"!

What did we do with all of our free time before these kids?!?!

Kim, Grandma to Ava,ws said...

OMG! I hope Tate is ok! Poor baby, she must have been terrified. You, too! Keep us posted, Lisa.

Nancy said...

Kids are pretty darn tough. I hope she heals up without any consequences (bet she will). More stories for her when she is grown.

Okay, the ghetto candles made me laugh out loud. LOVE THEM! It IS good she didn't turn 10.

You are wonderful!

Tara said...

OK-The "dr. pepper" thing totally cracks me up!!! (as does the candles!!!). I hate to hear she fell down the stairs - that is so scary!!!! I hope she is feeling better today!!

Aspen said...

Lisa...I have seen those stairs, and I can only imagine how scared you must have been. Poor baby girl! On another note...Tatum is just beautiful! I cannot wait until Daven is old enough to see her beauty and falls in love! ;-)

I hope the doctors appointment goes well today. LOVE!

(Thanks for helping Autumn move in! I know she couldn't have done it without Chris and your help. She might would have had to hire some of the guys attacking you at the UHAL shop. HA!)

Heather said...

Oh my gosh!!!! I hope she is okay... poor baby. Oh yeah, Caleb is always ready to call 911! But hasn't yet. Hopefully I didn't jinx it.

Nicole said...

Well, my twin, Emerson fell down our flight of 12 stairs onto tile last week. We didn't even see it happen!! Ella informed us that she fell down the stairs. Hopefully, Tatum will recover as quickly as Emerson did. Sure does get your heart racing.

Tatum is just beautiful, I love the pictures! You crack me up with the "ghetto candles". Been there, done that. :))
