I am so strict when it comes to my daughter's things and other stuff at home. Remember my last post about us buying her a new bed? It was too big to be carried out of the bedroom door. So if we wanted to get it out of the bedroom, we have to disassemble the part and put it back again. On Friday (18th), I washed her playpen and realized that we no longer have her crib because whenever I wash that playpen, she stays in the crib and vise versa. So I had her on the floor walking around the house with me behind her. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon the playpen was dried up except for the mat that's zipped on all sides of the playpen. She pushed it so hard that she reached the fan, I was in the kitchen sink and Oh my! I saw her putting her fingers in the fan and there! She had one cut in her flesh and 2 on her middle finger nails. At first I don't know what to do, whether to change clothes and bring her to the nearest hospital or don't change at all. I hurried up washing her hand, we changed clothes in a matter of like 10 seconds and hurried outside to go to the hospital. It was a nightmare. I called my husband from the office and he packed his things and head home.
It was really devastating and scary for the three of us. Thank God her fingers were still attached, and wasn't hurt as bad as I imagined her to be. I though she need to be stitched but the ER doctors assured us that it was just a cut in the flesh. But still, the fact that she's hurt kills me.
I realized a couple of things but I want to stress this out to myself: Forget about dinner, it can wait, my child's safety is more important.
My husband and I bought a bed for our daughter last week and it was delivered today. We were so excited as the men who delivered the good assembles the big bed for my daughter. It was really big for her but it doesn't matter. We wanted a bed for her that she'll be comfortable with and room enough for her to walk and roll. And of course I can't help myself not making a layout of it :)
I'm not feeling well tonight but I'm still online because I need to upload my new layouts which coordinates the kits that I used, when I saw my blinkie at Scrapping Fairytales. My layout was chosen as layout of the week. I'm really happy. Gab, our admin and owner of Snuggle Berry Pies Designs, really made my night :)
This is the chosen layout. The very first realistic layout I was able to make.

When my daughter celebrated her first birthday in June, I made a photobook as her guestbook. It's a digiscrap photobook that I enjoyed making. Friends and relatives thought that I had it made by a professional, that I went to a shop.
It was a 42 page 8x8 photobook. It consists of her birth, 1st birthday, 1st Christmas, 1st New Year, 1st Out of town, 1st teething and other special events that happened with in her first year of life. I have already kept pictures after her first birthday so I could include them on her Year Two photobook which I will have printed by next year.
Some more pages...
The secret in making a photobook is patience and sticking onto your time frame.
1. What non-food items are in your refrigerator or freezer?
Haha! Well I have my daughter's vitamins, toothbrush and toothpaste in the fridge. Also an eye dropper. But they're in one small basket.
2. What non-book items are on your bookshelves?
My daughter's sing and roll toy from her daddy.
3. What song or album in your music collection doesn’t fit in with your usual tastes?
Ohhh.. now that you asked that. I was surprised to hear the song, Can't Be with You Tonight by Judy Bounce, in my player. I'm not so sure where it came from.
4. What item in your wardrobe really doesn’t match anything else?
A blouse my sister was begging for a long time for me to throw. Hahaha! she said I look something else when I was wearing it. Honestly I know all about it but I like it just because of the prints. It reminds me of my childhood. I just don't know which part LOL!
5. What scar on your body did you receive in the unlikeliest of ways?
That would be a small (not really a scar) on my forehead because of chicken pox.
