First of all, life is seeming normal again. Scott is back to a normal schedule. The best part is he gets to see Hannah in the morning and at night, which is such a treat.
This weekend Hannah started taking care of her monkey that her Aunt Kris and Uncle Jason gave her. She started by putting it in its bed/basket but now feeds it a milk bottle and puts a blanket on it. It has to be the cutest thing to watch. She continues to amaze us everyday. It was a much calmer weekend compared to last... thank goodness!

Hannah had her first major fall last night. It wasn't even such a major fall, it was just the way she fell that caused her to dislocate her elbow on her left arm. It took us a while to figure out what hurt her, her wrist, her fingers, her arm. Then we realized her arm was limp. We called my dad and he immediately knew what had happened so he came over. He was able to get her elbow back in place. She was so brave. Once the fear and pain went away she calmed down and by the end of the night she was crawling and laughing. It was scary and hard to watch her in pain but thank God Grandpa Doc was able to make it better and save us a trip to the emergency room. We learned that now she will be more susceptible to that type of injury. This is quite a common injury amongst kids 1 -4. FYI the main cause of this is pulling a child or lifting a child by their hands.

Last week we had such nice weather, one day it was in the 60's, so we walked to our park for the first time this year. We met our friends Katie and Teddy there to swing on the swings. We are looking forward to more warm days. It is not quite spring yet since today it was 5 degrees.

Hannah is very busy these days. She has been crawling for a couple of months but in the past month she has started to cruise. Her favorite is cruising around our ottoman but she is also enjoying walking with her shopping cart and baby carriage. Of course with this new mobility comes bumps and bruises but she is pretty cautious. We still think walking is in the distance which is fine with me.

After 3 birthday parties and many generous gifts and 3 rounds of cupcake eating, Hannah is officially one. Scott and I have agreed that next year there will only be one birthday party. Hannah was a trooper. At each celebration she enjoyed herself and actually ate her cardboard, frosted cupcake (egg, milk and soy free!) Between Christmas and her birthday she got pretty good at opening gifts.
