Jenna is our tough child, she is like a rock. She had fallen a few days prior when I had taken her and Bethany's pictures, she also fell almost as hard at Bernheim the day before with very little crying and complaining. Joseph ran over her heel with the stroller I know how painful that is, and still she was a tough cookie. This time she was in terrible pain which has to be alot for Jenna. Thankfully, my mom had just pulled in so we left all the kids with her and rushed Jenna home to calm her and clean up her bloody mouth.
At first her mouth bled but not very long. Her teeth were pushed back and loose and she just screamed and sobbed and shook with pain, it was the worst pain I have ever seen my child in and it was very sad. We debated taking her to urgentcare and even got in the van to go but really felt like there was very little they could do for her and it was most likely a wait and see kind of thing. Her lip swelled really badly and stayed that way for several days before going down and eventually she had bruising under and round her nose.
That night before bed.
There is no way I could have taken it as good as she did, she is amazing.
Last Friday was 3 weeks since she fell and she went to the dentist. They said they could see that there had been trauma to her upper gums and teeth, her teeth are still slightly loose but have tightened up alot in the past week. Her teeth may turn gray and need to be pulled but they didn't know. We were grateful for a good report and that she didn't have any cavities.
We had our first frost.
We went to the pumpkin patch twice.
I had 6 photography shoots!
Almost have enough for a new camera put back from my photo shoots.
We fought through a nasty cold that was borderline pneumonia with prayer and doTerra essential oils. I am so excited about essential oils, I can't stop talking about them! Hope to write a blog post about them soon.
We love our church, it is such a blessing to us and has really changed our lives, another thing I can't stop talking about.
I became an aunt for the 6th time on my side of the family to my 6th niece.
I have been knitting, even sold a few of these sweet crowns. I absolutely love to knit and the crowns are a fast enough project for me to complete.
Joseph turns 8 on Thursday.
Bethany finished her 3rd grade Abeka book from last year so we moved on to Saxon 54 and it has been such a relief. Saxon makes us both happy!
Anne has started to pick up more words and will try saying words when asked. Last week, she started saying "Sissy" and will attempt Joseph, Jenna and Brady. She says poop, bye-bye, Mamma and Papaw and she still says "Hi" very sweetly and softly when she sees us. She started saying "Please" last night.
Anne is in the 25% for height and weight.
Brady is an all out mess, he tells everyone who will listen that his birthday is comin' up. He also added, "I wanna lotta stuff fer my birfday." He knows it's December 6th and also tells everyone that.
We went to our church's fall festival. Bethany was a Native American Indian, Joseph was an Army soldier, Jenna was a princess, Brady and Anne were cowboy and cowgirl.
blog post that really spoke to me and has a great resource that I am excited to post on our fridge. I don't know about you but about this point in the school year, life gets kinda monotonous and I feel like I can't ever get caught up in any area of my life. I need to be diligent with pressing toward the mark in my disciplines as a Christian, a wife and mother. The words in the link were greatly encouraging and challenging to me.
November is off to a wonderful start, I am excited about a number of things from Joseph's birthday party on Saturday to Women of Faith in Louisville next weekend. I am always thankful for new beginnings, new seasons, this new month. I love this month of thankfulness, we are so very blessed.
Thanks for catching up a bit, it's been fun!
