January 5th & 6th



January 5th, 2011 - Laila went to the mall for the first time. Even was able to use her stroller that goes along her car seat. Definitely glad I decided on getting a travel system. Of course, she didn't care. Instead, she does what she is best at...sleeping! She did decide to wake up while my aunt and I were eating at Applebees. Luckily, my aunt finished eating and took over so I could eat my food. AND THEN, Laila decided she didn't want ANYTHING. All she wanted to do was scream her head off. Nothing was calming her down, I felt so bad. I hate when she cries and I can't calm her down. I hate when she doesn't even want me or anybody or anything. But after about 5 minutes, she was completely out. I think she was still tired but wasn't letting herself stay awake. Resulting in cranky, screaming baby. And that's her knew thing...fighting sleep. So night time has become very difficult because that's her crankiest time. Especially after bath time. She gets too relaxed and once taken out of the water she gets cold and cranky. She is still amazing though.

I ordered Laila an awesome playmat from Walmart a couple days ago. So, I was so excited to finally go pick it up and take it home. I hoped that she would love it because lately she loves to hangout on her back while toys are dangled in front of her face. That got old real quick because my arms were getting sore.

 It sure looks like she enjoys it :]

That night, while I was taking stuff out of my car, I injured my knee. I knelt down, or at least was in the process, and all of a sudden my whole knee shifted to the left. I screamed in pain and bawled my eyes out. I sat there for a couple minutes because I couldn't move my leg. Pain was radiating through out my leg :[ I took Laila into the house along with the items I had bought and just sat there. Walking hurt too much. I didn't go to the doctor. I dealt with the pain and just slept it off. 

January 6, 2011 - So much for sleeping off the pain. Laila would wake up in the middle of the night to eat and I had such an incredibly difficult time getting out of bed. I could barely move my leg and I whimpered in pain every time I had to walk. That morning I had decided it was time to take a trip to the doctors office. I called up my aunt to see if she was able to drive Laila and I. So glad she works from home. Turns out I tore the cartilage in my knee. Now I'm stuck wearing a brace for the next couple days/weeks or until it's healed. If it doesn't improve I have to get an MRI. Just picture my gimping around with a sexy knee brace. Ahaha. 

Besides that, I got to baby sit my neighbor, Jasmine. She's such a doll and fun to be around. She pulled out every single one of Laila's toys and put them all away. She kind of held Laila but quickly decided that she was too heavy. It was adorable.

I can't wait for Laila to start talking, crawling, walking, chewing on her feet. AH! It excites me.

Oh, and I guess I have mommy brain because the other day I put on two different clogs and didn't realize it until a couple hours later.


That's all for now. 

Justin and I are about to make dinner and watch a movie.

Owww. I cringed when I read about your knee! That has to hurt! The play mat is the best. For about 2 months, it was my best friend. I could put Julianna on it, and it would keep her occupied for a long time ... she loved all the dangling toys- it was the best when she started swatting at them - so cute!
And the feet thing ... that's coming sooner than you think - it's so adorable when they discover their feet & toes! :)
