At the hospital

I have lost track of weeks... so I'll still post photos regularly, but I'm not going to do the 'week' count anymore - just months I think :)
We were out at the playground by the beach the other day (on a GORGEOUS warm winter day!) and you decided to pop onto someone's bike for a ride! You don't know how to move it with your feet yet, but you are a champ on getting on and off of it!

Unfortunately we ended up in the hospital last week. Your ear was swollen and you lost your balance, it turned out you had an infection in the bone behind your ear (mastoiditis) and had to have strong iv antibiotics to fight it.

It wasn't fun being there - but WOW the view!! It brought a slight smile to my face every morning to see the ocean & the beach.

You LOVED the playroom though. This chair was your absolute favorite - just your size!

TOO much fun!!!

You got some Gorgeous get well balloons from your Minnesota family

Not only did they brighten our space....

But you also had SO much fun batting at them!

The window is dirty - but gotta love that ocean sunrise - I saw a lot of these as we got VERY little sleep.... so noisy!

All set up with iv, snacks and a baby genius dvd :)

Oh I just LOVE playing in here!!!

Ahhhhh look at meeeeee!


You also loved squeezing yourself behind the parent seats in the playroom - gotta love that smile:) Although we had to spend a week there, you really were SO happy the whole time. They were amazed by how 'well' you seemed considering how serious your infection was. As the pediatrician said 'she's strong, she's a fighter'!

Some Daddy and puppy time :)

Our little dancer! Whenever we say 'show us how you dance Genna' you start shaking your little bottom back and forth - too cute!! We love your happy squeal too!

Your favorite thing lately is to carry my calendar around and flip through the pages. You actually search out my purse and dig it out so you can walk around with it!

You LOVE giving cuddles and kisses :)

Week 56 & 57 & 58

Oh wow - first time we have gone 3 + weeks without doing a blog!

Murray had a motorbike accident and was in the hospital for 10 days, so things have been hectic. But he will be ok, some rest and then some surgery and he will heal.

Butterfly bum lady with the fluffy hair!

Giving kangaroo a cuddle

No more photos Mama!!!
You know what you do and don't want lately! When you are finished eating something you push it to the side of the tray and won't look at it again!

Sharing lunch with lamby

Sleeping with a football pose - cute!

All dressed down for the evening - but I had to get this photo. You LOVE carrying your handbag around on your elbow like this.

I've got my bag - now where can we go shopping?

SUCH a tall girl - nearly half Daddy's height already!

Nanna came these past 2 weeks to help with Genna while I was sorting everything out with Murray. Her new favorite thing is to climb up on Nanna's suitcase - fun!

And some reading..... :)

Murray got this awesome strawberry get well bouquet from Minnesota family - gorgeous and SO SO yummy!!!

We were surprised to see that the base was actually a head of lettuce!

Cool idea! A nice natural way to keep the berries in place and it's sticky so it stays in place in the bowl.
