Luckily there was no severe damage, she just shaved part of her cornea which healed up very quickly. I found out quick how much kids don't like it when you put medicine in their eyes..... and then in September, I got to have my happy stay at Valley Regional to deliver our newest family member, Taylor.

17) Describe your birthday?
Sadly, I don't remember. Being 2 days after Ashtyn's, mine just kind of comes and goes. I know I got a new Grizzley though!!!
18) What's one thing you thought you'd never do but did in 2008?
Manage to not have a nervous breakdown. 2008 was a very bad/crazy year. It seems like bad news was around every corner. In April, my step brother was in a very bad car accident, he actually just recently ended his never-ending stay at one hospital after the other, but that was not a good time to say the least. Then in June, I went for my ultrasound to "find out the gender" of my little munchkin, just to find out she didn't have a left hand and then hear that I needed a battery of other tests to make sure she was actually OK in all other aspects. When I got home from that appointment, I recieved a 2 week notice from 2 of the 3 kids I was providing daycare for, then that night had to tell my husband "hey, I lost 2 kids today, so we have no money coming in on my end and oh, by the way, we're having a girl (ha ha I win) and she only has one hand" that was a rough week. so we eventually told the family and everyone had their initial tears but was totally fine. Once we finally found out Taylor was fine and going to be a perfectly healthy, normal little girl, the fog seemed to disipate for a while. Then, two days after Taylor was born, my sister and her husband were in a terrible crash..... one of the passengers died..... a few bumps and bruises to Julie and Ryan, Rachel, a friend of ours, got the worst of the "boo-boo's", she broke her nose and had to get a zillion stitches and whatnot to fix her poor nose.... but so now Ryan is going to court for this and that's just making stuff all sorts of crazy. That's just the icing on the cake. I won't bore you with the rest.
19) What has been your favorite moment?
When Taylor was born and Ashtyn was so proud and excited to have a baby sister.
20) What's something you learned about yourself?
I CAN NOT AND WILL NOT DELIVER WITHOUT AN EPIDURAL!!!!!!
21) What was your best month?
February..... I looked hot at Julie's wedding (and I had just found out I was pregnant)
22) What music will you remember 2008 by?
23) Who has been your best drinking buddy?
Ashtyn and Taylor.....we get to be sober together...yippee
24) Made new friends?
25) New or old best friend?
I have no idea what I am supposed to say to that...
26) Favorite Night out?
Ummmmm When I have one, I'll let you know.

Tuesday, December 2, 2008
I never thought I'd see the day I was this busy. I barely have time to wipe myself, or even go to the bathroom for that matter. Anyway, since I have only a few seconds to blah to all who care... Taylor had her two month check up today (shots and all) what fun :( She did great though, she only cried for a few aggonizing seconds. Some of you may know I was a bit concerned to hear of the possibility of a hip problem last month from the orthopedic dr at Dartmouth.... well her pediatrician checked her hips today and its a gray area still. Basically her hips should allow her legs to lay flat when pressed open......did you catch that??? Picture the flats of your feet together while you lay on your back.....the sides of your knees (at least if you're a baby) should touch the floor.....well hers won't allow that. I guess that is usually a big but fixable problem. It basically means her hip is not actually in the socket, its kind of floating....however, normally when there is a floating hip thing going on, the doctor can disconnect the hip on the baby.....well he can't do that to Taylor soooooo there may or may not be a problem???? I'm lost myself.... So I'm still stuck waiting until March to have her xrays done to find out if there is a problem or not. Everyone knows how I enjoy waiting >:( But on another note..... we have her first appointment made with Shriner's.....January 14! Talk about right around the corner. I have no clue what will happen then but at least the ball is rolling. Hopefully I will have another 5 seconds in the near future to blah some more soon.
