Bumps and Bruises

Well, we had a pretty eventful week in the falling department this past week. Molly had 4 tumbles in side of one week!! The first was a slip, and a face plant right on the tile floor in the hall, ending up with a bloody fat upper lip. :( Then a couple of days later she took a tumble off the bottom step on our back steps, and hit her head on the concrete. Then she took a tumble on Saturday down 2 stairs on her way up for a bath, after she turned on a dime to look at me. Luckily I was right there, and broke her fall. Then yesterday she was playing on our bed, and rolled off onto the floor.
Molly is just fine, but my nerves are not!! I am on pins, and needles anytime she is on the stairs, or on the bed now. I guess all in the life of a toddler?? Mommy doesn't like it. :(

Well it has been a while since I posted an update on Molly. She is now nearly 22 months old. She is about 34" high, and around 31 lbs. She is crazy active. She just got over a case of roseola. She was not herself. She is usually no worse for wear when she is sick, but she was not well. Poor thing.

We have been attending BC StrongStart at one of the local elementary schools. It is a paid program by the BC government so it is free to go. They have a range of activities for all ages, and parents can meet other parents. They have free play time, circle time, snack time, craft time, more free time, and then a story. On Monday's and Wednesdays they have gym time. Which basically is a free for all in the gym. The kids have a blast running around chasing balls, and each other.
On Tuesdays they have library time. Molly is enjoying herself, and learning lots of things.

As well as a daily increasing vocabulary, along with knowing her abc's , and counting to ten... she is also speaking some Spanish words. She is starting to count in Spanish, and she says hola a bunch. Not only does she know the numbers in Spanish, she knows the order as well. Even if she is my child she is a pretty smart cookie, though she is no where near ready to potty train. I will have a genius in diapers. :( I guess we can't have it all. :)

She amazes me everyday, and I look forward to each to see what she does next. :)
