the opposite







Happy New Year! Oh yeah we had the best end to 2011 and worst start to 2012....

The good part was spent down in Donnelly River with Ross' family at their holiday shack. It was super idyllic, we ate cheese and sipped pimms on the balcony whilst the kiddies played with the friendly kangaroos, emus and parrots. We got coffee from the general store, swam in the dam, played on the playground and pushed Tallulah around in her new trike. It was delightful and so relaxing!

Then on our return Ross and I spent the first two days of the new year in bed with gastritis...ew. And then we had to go to emergency (first time ever!) because Tallulah was jumping on my Mums bed and landed strange on her foot (on the bed not the floor...) and screamed so loud and then refused to walk! So off we went to PMH where they suspected it was broken and sent us home for 48 hours to monitor it. Tallulah was so cuddly and sat on the couch with me the whole of the next day and didn't crawl or walk. So not Tallulah. So we went back in for an x-ray and thankfully after 3 different people looked at the x-ray they told us it wasn't broken and she didn't need a cast. OMG so stressful and exhausting....

I am super thankful that this was our first experience at emergency. I am so thankful that our 'emergency' wasn't something involving blood, allergic reactions or something super serious. We have learnt a lot!

I am glad to report that Tallulah is back to her spirited self and walking and almost running all over the house! I'm trying to stop the bouncing and jumping on the bed/couch but she loves it! Crazy baby!

Ross and I joke that 2012 just has to get better now....geez I sure hope so! I hope everyone's new year was better than ours! haha

Wow what a start to 2012! I'm glad to know that Tallulah is okay though and running around again. It's scary to think our children can harm themselves since they are running everywhere - it's hard keeping an eye on them every second isn't it?
