The Atticus Chronicles

Howdy Folks! After waiting very patiently for my husband to set up a web page for my son for almost a year I figured it was high time that I took matters into my own hands. Introducing our Family Blog! I hope to get on here fairly regularly to let you all know about the adventures of our family and to post the latest pic's of Atticus. Stay tuned ...

A BIG Ouchy!

Yesterday when I had Josephine in the shower she fell forward and hit her head on the rim of the doorway (as I was kneeling in it holding her with the door open) and gave me the fright of my life! She started SCREAMING and immediately the biggest, ugliest bruise I have EVER seen started forming on her head. I didn't think the swelling was ever going to stop so we called an Ambulance as I was terrified that she had concussion.

The Ambulance arrived about fifteen minutes later at which time Josie was quite happily playing peek-a-boo with Daddy and Atti. Apparently when she fell she burst a blood vessel in her forehead hence all the pretty colours on her noggin so rapidly but since she didn't lose consciousness or start vomiting they weren't really worried about concussion. I must admit that when they arrived I was a much bigger mess than Josie ... it took me hours to calm down properly.

I've added some pictures that honestly don't do the extent of the bruising any justice. We're going to have some very 'pretty' pictures of her for her birthday tomorrow!

It's been a while ...

I have no excuse ... I've just been really slack!

Here's so random pics from our recent trip to the Gold Coast. Who would have thought that a 'holiday' could be so exhausting! Next time we take a break I think it's best if we leave the kids at home ;-)
