The good and the bad...

Well, it happened...Emma fell off our bed on Sunday. And our bed is very high. I had laid her down to sleep w/ her daddy and after about an hour she rolled right off the side of the bed and landed face down on the floor. I think her hands were between her face and the floor, though and her legs were pulled up under her. I scooped her up as soon as it happened and she cried pretty hard, but only for about a minute and then she was back to her happy playful self. I don't know if it hurt or scared her more. I know it scared Michael pretty bad...I think it would have scared me more if I hadn't realized how upset he was, though. I was afraid she was going to have a little black eye, but now I don't think she is.

On a happier note...she has been saying DaDaDaDa all weekend. I told Michael she was just making a sound, though! :D I mean, c'mon - isn't she supposed to say MaMa first?? After all I am the one that carried and delivered her and got up in the middle of the night for feeding and changes all the stinky diapers and all that stuff! Why does daddy get to be said first!?!? Oh, maybe b/c when he's around they are always playing!!! Ha ha! do I sound a little jealous? Well...maybe a little bit! ;)


  1. Poor Emma... At least she is okay. That would have scared me too!

  2. I think every baby has to go through some sort of fall or something. And really, when you see the doctors and nurses handling them in the hospital right after they're born, you gotta think they're made to withstand a lot of stuff.

    Once when I was carrying Lilith (she was only like 2 months old at the time) her head rammed into the door frame of the bedroom. It didn't leave a mark or anything and she didn't really cry that much, but sometimes when she's doing something really out there I wonder if it was from that. hahahahahaha

    I don't even remember what Lilith's first "word" was. We didn't exactly encourage speech since Stephen was (is) quite the talker. haha

  3. My kids all said DaDa first. I don't know what the deal is. Sorry to hear that she fell. Both of mine fell off the bed. It's a good thing they don't break that easily.

  4. Don't feel too bad about the DaDa thing - the "D" sound is easier to form than the "M" sound. I bet she would still pick MaMa over anyone else in a crowded room! :D
