Ellie fell from the counter last night. We were in the laundry room and getting ready for her bath. I had her on the counter and I had my hand holding her so she wouldn't roll over as I was getting the sink ready with my other hand. She is strong and it happened so quickly, she just flipped off. She landed on her back. Thank GOD for her helmet. I hadn't taken if off yet. She cried for a couple minutes and I'm still crying about it. I feel horrible and my stomach is still in a knot. She's okay and people keep telling me that it's okay and it happens, but seriously I am so mad at myself and every time I think about it I want to cry. I might see if she can get another helmet once she out grows this one, I don't care that it's expensive and insurance doesn't cover it. Maybe she can wear a bike helmet. Okay now I'm just being ridiculous, but I'm still soooo stupid.

  1. what an adorable picture of ellie! i feel so bad for you! this has yet to happen to us but i know it is only a matter of time. the bike helmet for life is a great idea. i have contemplated hockey pads, mouth guard, rib cage protector...the works!
