DAMMIT, DAMMIT! I'm so mad at myself! Ashlyn fell off the bed for the
second time this morning! After the first time, I vowed to myself that
I would never leave her unattended again. The sour thing was, she WASN'T
unattended...I'm just an idiot and I was lying right next to her! She
rolled (unlike the first time) and had picked up momentum (which is
rare) , and my reflexes were not quick enough. DAMMIT! Poor girl landed
face down again (pacifier still in her mouth *owie*). I picked her up
quick. She screamed like I've never heard! She was pretty freaked out
because her poor lil' face and lips were completely pale. I felt awful...just
came home a little bit earlier from work. We had to pick up some things
at Costco and Babies R Us. Ashlyn's been in need of a new car seat.
She had outgrown her infant seat for a while now. Aric's been doing
a lot of research the past few nights on all the different car seats.
Initially, he wanted to get her a Simpson
or a Recaro
car seat. For those who are not familiar, Aric's really into cars..you
know, modifying and suping them up. But after some extensive research,
he realized that comfort, dependability, and safety came above just
looks and price. And believe me, those car seats were hella pricey!
We got home around 9:30pm. I fed and played with Ashlyn, while Aric was busy setting up her car seat. We put her in it, and she loved it. She sat in her new luxurious "throne" like a little princess. Ivy called and we talked at length, all the while Ashlyn was busy squealing and making blowing faces. Ivy thought it was so cute, but I was getting spit on. =P
Pictures from tonight:
do much else tonight. Just spent time with Aric and watched "NBC's
20 Years of Must See TV" with Will & Grace's Eric McCormack
as host. I can't wait until tomorrow's season finale of "Smallville"!
