lily's big adventure

This past Thursday was a very eventful day in our home.  Not only was it Lily's first day at her "baby school" but it was also her first visit to the emergency room.

I am starting back to work this week and will be working two days a week.  While I am at work, Lily will be going to "Mom's Day Out" at a local church.  Anyway, her first day couldn't have gone any better.  Her teacher, Miss Luanda, said that she talked all day long (no surprise there) and didn't have any problem taking her nap on the mat (much much different from the crib she's used to).  

After I picked her up, we went home and were playing with Daddy in his office, when Lily tripped and split open her forehead.  We were all upset and covered in blood by the time we arrived at the children's hospital in downtown Orlando.  Luckily, we were able to get right in, and after getting stitched up by a plastic surgeon, we were back at home and resting.  Lily handled the whole situation much better than I did. :S

Lily is doing very well and doesn't seem to mind the bandages we put on her forehead.  We are going to be taking every precaution to minimize the scarring.  It's a good thing that Lily likes wearing hats, as her face won't be seeing the sun anytime soon!

Here are some pics from the first day of school and her hospital visit*.

When I dropped Lily off, she just said "bye" and continued playing.  I, on the other hand, didn't take it as well!

(*for those of you who think I'm a total sicko for photographing my injured child,  I did it because I'm terrible at writing in her baby book and wanted to at least document it for the future... so there!)
