scary

Heart attack of my life.


So I was letting Olivia play on the floor in her room. Her new favorite game is emptying baskets, and basically making messes. So she was enjoying that in her room, while I was doing dishes in the kitchen. I went and checked on her every 5 or 10 minutes or so. Each time I found her still happily taking everything out of her little toy basket. Until the last time I went to check. I peaked in the room and she wasn't there! Now, she has been crawling around to get to things that she can see, but I've never seen her actually leave a room and start exploring. Anyway, I searched her room, under the crib, etc. She was def no where in her room. So the next closest room is ours. I looked in there quick, figuring she'd just be in the doorway or something, I mean how far could she get in 5 minutes? So then I go down the hall to the next bedroom and I don't see her in there either. At this point I'm actually crying, and my heart is beating a million miles an hour. I go back into my room to search more thoroughly. Sure enough, there is she under the bed playing with who knows what. I guess that's the end of low supervision play for her.




Sheesh. I'm not ready for this.

(Just a cute picture of dinner time. Sometimes I let Olivia feed herself, which I'm pretty impressed how much does actually end up in her mouth... although it's minor compared to what ends up everywhere else!)

Oh my gosh!! What an emotional day for you being the mom. I would totally react the same way and cry. That happened to me when Ry was younger and I was in tears and couldn't find her....finally I did. I am sure Olivia is enjoying the space in your mew home and she will find more hiding spaces. I love the picture of her eating and we miss you guys already. Take care.
