Quick hello

Hey. This has to be quick. I'm in the middle of trying to get caught up on days and days of studying that were robbed from me by the stomach flu (as Liz Lemon would say--blergh). Oh, and Maizey fell off the bed today, right in front of me--she's so fast. She fell head first onto the hardwood floors and when I got to the other side of the bed she was laying on the floor on her back. I thought she was paralyzed. It was, officially, the worst/scariest moment of my life. I picked her up and realized that aside from being totally freaked out, she was okay. I think that I suffered way worse than she did. After a hysterical phone call to the pediatrician, I took her to get seen just to be safe. My pediatrician is amazing, she said "who cried more, mom or the baby?" And, it made me feel so understood. And, it made me realize that they probably have visits like this at least once a day. A quick "props" to Maizey's pediatricians over at Harbour Pointe Everett Clinic, she sees Lynette Wacholz and Dr. Zaret there. They are amazing, honestly, amazing. When I called freaked out this morning they just told me to bring her in, and when we got there, they got us straight back. Plus, I feel like not only do they provide medical care for my baby, they provide a ton of emotional/mental care for me--which is so helpful/comforting.

Anyway, my girl is being her lovely, crazy self, despite quite a big fall today. I don't understand how babies are so resilient, I can guarantee that if I fell off a bed today I would not be happy and playing. I couldn't even give her Tylenol because the docs didn't want it to mask potential symptoms. She's the happiest girl in the world, she never complains, and she's all mine.

Here are a couple of videos of Maizey's new laugh, she does it ALL the time, it's adorable and nuts--just like her. Also, we had a family dinner last Saturday night, and as always auntie Ricky was ready with the camera.

This is Darren trying to sneak some chocolate. Soooo cute.

Pretty cousin Harper.

The cutest skirt (and baby) in the world, courtesy of auntie--who else?
I don't have a pic of the entire outfit, but surely you can appreciate the recurring theme of tulle. It's ridiculous!
Darren's belly button.
They look exactly alike!
Here is that crazy laugh...

Maizey waving "hi" and sporting her new swimsuit.

Another video of her crazy laugh. I think that this swimsuit will leave crazy tan lines with its huge bow.

Well, this post turned out not be as quick as I'd hoped. Oh well.
