(*sidenote: I did this entire post yesterday, and then blogger quit working and it erased. grrr. So, we'll try this again!)
Yesterday morning, Haley was on her way over to our house for a quick, friendly little visit. She pulled into our neighborhood, ready to come play and enjoy her chicken biscuit, when a lady slammed into her car! Now, let me just say that Haley has more on her plate right now than I can even start to explain...she is dealing with way more than I can even imagine. So, when she called to tell me, I thought you have got to be kidding me! Why Haley?!? And the most amazing part is, she just laughed it off...whereas I would be bawling and on the verge of a panic attack. Her car is injured bad. And the woman who hit her is an OB, so considering Haley is 26 weeks pregnant, she insisted that she go to the hospital to make sure she and the baby were ok. I offered to watch Stella so she could go to the hospital, and after 4 hours of testing (!!), Haley and the baby seem to be fine. Praise the Lord! Meanwhile, Lyla and Stella had a heck of a playdate...
and giggled on the chair together
(these 2 are such giggle boxes when they get together, they just feed off each other)
lounged outside, soaking in the beautiful weather
Lyla has never sucked her thumb, but decided to try it out after watching Stella all morning
Here's Lyla learning to share and take turns (one of the many opportunities we had for this particular life lesson. oh my!!)
"blowing" on their pinwheels
eating a picnic lunch
who am I kidding...they did not last long on that towel. String cheese is way more fun to eat while you're playing.
Haley, so glad you're ok!! And, again, so amazed by your awesome attitude!!
(And, Ashley Gibbs, I thought of you so many times...I don't know how you handle multiples!! And I only had 2 for a few hours!! ha!)
