So just when I wasn't feeling like a crazy woman anymore, this happened. Saturday night our friends/neighbors invited us over to play games. I was hurrying to get dinner done (we were running late, as usual) and I was trying to remove the pit from an avocado and the knife slipped. I sliced my hand pretty good and it hurt so bad! I kind of panicked, luckily Ryan was there to wrap my hand and then he asked me if I could drive myself to the hospital! Funny guy, he didn't want to take all 3 kiddos to the hospital, so I suggested calling our friends, the Hamblin's, and they were so wonderful and came over to our house instead to watch the girls. We went to the ER in Brigham City and I had to get 5 stitches and a tetenus shot. For some reason the anesthesia didn't work on me so I never was numbed the whole way, the stitches weren't fun. Luckily I have some painkillers leftover from Brinley so they have helped. Needless to say it has been an interesting day! Hopefully it heals fast!

8 weeks old!

My sweet baby is 8 weeks old! I can't believe how fast time goes by. I am not going to lie, the last 8 weeks have been tough, really tough. At 2 1/2 weeks old Brinley started to cry and it seemed like she never stopped until a week ago. We think she had silent reflux so we were giving her Zantac which seemed to help a little. Finally last week she started spitting up and the crying stopped, woohoo! I had to let her scream for a day because she was used to being held ALL the time, but now she is awesome. Brinley is such a sweet baby and we really see her sweet little personality shining through. She is so happy and content, it is wonderful. I love her little smile, it melts my heart! Even though having three kids has been very challenging I love my girls. They are so fun. They are all growing up so fast and make us laugh, we love it! I think they are loving having mommy back :o) I don't feel like a crazy woman anymore :o)
