Graceful Leap

I had been waiting to hear back from the Dr.'s office today, and my phone began to ring I raced to go get it. I jumped over Isaac's skateboard lying in the hallway, and on the other side of the board, my foot landed on the prongs of a plug. I was in such a hurry, that I didn't notice the pain at first. I knew it hurt, but after that phone call, WOW, I was sure feeling it!

I have a nice gash on the bottom of my foot, about an inch in length. It's not one of those cuts that bleeds much, but almost feels that it's tearing open when I walk. Basically it hurts! I will spare everyone the pictures. . .

In some more, delightful news, Ainsley is now crawling on her knees. No more army crawling for this girl, she means business these days. Ainsley's eyes can catch the smallest piece of anything on the floor, and OFF she goes. I don't remember Isaac being such an eater "of things", but I also didn't have a two year old to leave "things" around, or distract mom from picking "things" up. Ainsley likes to keep me on my toes.

I am also very proud of Isaac today. Those of you have picky eaters will understand my joy. Those of you who don't, this will all sound very trivial. For lunch today, Isaac ate THREE chicken nuggets, TWO crinkle fries, and (my favorite) an entire strawberry. It has been a VERY LONG time since he would eat a strawberry. I was thrilled and offered him more, but for now I just get to be happy that he ate ONE!!!

I am also thrilled that my desk arrived today! It has taken the moving company three months to fix what they broke, but it here now and I finally get to set up my scrapbook "shop". I have been trying to do a few different projects and it's been quite the challenge with my supplies in boxes. . . unorganized. Hopefully in the next day or two I will be organized, and can start fulfilling my scrapping urge. Sounds funny, but I am so behind on Ainsley's scrapbook, and more than ready to catch up. Not to mention I am taking a photography class online (which I love, and will post later about it), so in the near future hope to have some amazing pictures to scrap!

How exciting about the scrapbooking desk! It's funny how easy it is to get SO FAR behind in scrapbooking...I took a matter of weeks off from it and BAM! I'm 3 months behind! I'd really like to get some mojo back so I can have E.'s stuff up to date before a new baby comes and knocks me off my feet! LITERALLY!
As for the photography class...HOW EXCITING! I think we have the same camera so you will have to fill me in on what class you are taking online and if it's beneficial for our cameras...and if it fits within my budget! wink! wink!

Yay!!!! I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. I didn't think I could survive this eating thing again, but it looks like I'm going to have to or start thinking about adoption.
We'll have to continue to support each other with these problems.

You are full of good news today (besides the foot thing. That doesn't sound like fun.) I was happy but sad when Caleb started crawling. I had to keep a closer eye on him. I could no longer just leave him on teh floor and trust he'd stay there for a while.
