And, the same day Isley had her tooth pulled, Jonah got a long arm cast on his left arm!

It’s been a rough three weeks for our family, but we’ve kept our spirits up mostly!

This brave, sweet little one lost a tooth today. She had a bad fall on to her teeth back in January and the dentist warned us that the injured teeth could develop an abscess. Yesterday we noticed a swollen spot above one of her teeth, indicating an infection. She did so great at the dentist, so great that the dentist and the nurse commented that she was the bravest, sweetest, most docile one-year-old they’d ever worked on. I didn’t tell them that she never sleeps, yells NO all the time and that yesterday it took Matt, Jonah and myself to hold her down and brush her teeth. 😀 We are hoping the other three teeth will stay put for awhile!!

Just needed to share a few Eloise-isms, so we don’t forget! 

She drew me a lovely picture, but forgot – she said – to add hands and fingers. 

“I know we have hands and, you know, fingers and thumbs and stuff,” she said. 

Then she looked down at her hands, carefully, as though seeing them for the first time. 

“Unless..:I’m dreaming…”

Next one:

Today, she’s riding in the car when, out of the blue, she asks the following:

“Mom, okay, so Mom. How were there like dinosaurs…and then, they all died…and then there were people? I mean, who was the first Mom? And how did she become..if she was the very first Mom?”
Last one:

She participated in the robotics showcase today and when the interviewer asked about the part of their model that was supposed to be about their regular meetings, the interviewer said:

“So that’s kinda what your meetings looked like then?”

Eloise looked up at her like she was crazy, and said: 

“Yeah. But we’re not that little!”
