A long July!

Yesterday we were getting ready to go out for the day to celebrate Canada Day when our month of July totally changed! Jenna was going down the stairs (like she always does) and she fell down a couple stairs and broke her arm! Jesse was right there and caught her halfway down the stairs. He came upstairs and told me she just fell and her arm looked funny. I looked at it and we really didn't think anything was wrong. She wasn't really crying and it wasn't swollen so we thought she was okay. Then Jesse put her down and she tried to put pressure on it and he said it kind of bent weird and he knew it was broken right away. We rushed into the Royal Alex hospital where my sis-in-law Julie was working! Thank you Julie! She had a bed for us and helped us right away! She said is was one of the only benefits of working in emergency! Luckily it wasn't that busy so we had x-rays done before Jesse could even park the truck! (It is the other arm!)
So she broke both bones in her forearm! So sad...I know I cried way more than she did. She was so tough. She barely cried. All the docs and nurses said that they have never seen a baby so good for a broken arm! She even fell asleep in my arms while we were waiting for the doctor.She got a beauty cast from her knuckles to almost her shoulder. Smallest cast ever! We have a follow up appointment next week at the Stollery! Maybe we'll get a pink cast! Hope this month goes by fast, even though we have to avoid swimming and playing at the park! We'll have to find other fun summer things to do!

that cast looks HUGE on that tiny girl. yes definetly try to get a pink one. If you really wanna try to look fashionable you could put a baby leg on it.

That is so sad and in a funny sort of way cute because they just seem to adjust to anything that comes along. Hopefully you can too!
