First ER Trip

With a kid so much like her father, it was bound to happen sooner or later.

Last night, while we were eating at our table outside, Sora was playing under the table. She stood up too quickly and hit her head (not too hard though), then fell forward hitting her chin on the chair. She bit her tongue super hard. We couldn't see what was bleeding at first, so we rushed to the hospital (rookie parents, I know).

It turns out that she punctured her tongue in 2 spots with her super sharp teeth. It seems to hurt quite a bit and last night was particularly rough. She still wakes up and nurses 2-3 times per night, but the wound is in the exact wrong spot for nursing. This of course made the night even tougher for us! She would wake up crying, wanting to nurse, then would try but couldn't and would cry even more. She has spent most of the day eating yogurt and ice and sleeping and healing.

Hopefully it will be back to normal life soon.

In the meantime though, she did just go down to sleep in her crib without nursing for the first time ever at night (Kyle has perfected this during the day over the past week or two), and it may be the kick start to night weaning that we really do need!

As you can see, she is doing fine and is in good spirits.

Maleah! You still wake up 2 - 3 times a night? I hope your daughter knows how good she has it! :) Hope Sora gets well soon, that's such a bummer!

Also. All the things you make Sora are adorable. I love the blogs so we can all keep in touch, but I really love your fashion shows!!
