my bruised heart...

you know that verse...the one that says...

"Making a decision to have a child -- it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." -Elizabeth Stone

in my eyes, this is so incredibly true. reason being, my heart (lyla bug) was rendered bruised and bloody after a fall in the bathroom while playing with big sis (again, my heart) the other day. it happened so fast. the floor was wet. she slipped a first time, got back up, started to run, and SMACK...just like that she fell again, but this time much much harder and on her head. judging by the look on big sis's face was just as horrifying. so i scoop her up like a wet fish flailing around on the floor. as soon as i checked her head out, there went my bruised heart aching for her. this is what mommy saw...our sweet lyla bug, what can i say? you have had far more bumps and bruises than big sis ever did. you are fearless, mischievous, clumsy, and carefree. i love it so much about you, until you nearly give mommy a massive coronary. that being said, for safety reasons we have enforced a stricter policy around this house with that one...
