As you may already know from my last post, my baby girl broke her arm last weekend :(

We took her to Emergency and they said she has a fracture to her Ulna, the outside bone of her forearm.
They put this 'half cast' on her for a week until the swelling went down, then we had to go to the Fracture Clinic at the hospital on Monday to get her full plaster cast put on.

Sweet Shot Day
So, there we were at the hospital, thinking we were just there to get a fresh cast....
When the Doctor came in, looked at her cast, looked at her x-rays and said "Well, this isn't right."

It turns out the Doctors in Emergency last week had failed to notice her Radius (the other bone in her forearm) was dislocated..
And she had the wrong cast on for where her fracture is..
The Doctor then went on to frighten the life out of my sweet little girl saying things like 'operation' 'cut your bone' 'metal plate' 'stitches'.... there was no sugar coating!!

So instead of a fresh cast, we were booked in for Surgery first thing yesterday morning!

Scattered Horizons

Fortunately for Charlotte, once they got into the operating theatre they were able to manipulate the bone back into place without any surgery, phew! 
So now she is in a cast and sling pulled right up under her chin, which she can't remove for a week.
I had to cut her out of the clothes she wore in surgery (just an old singlet!) and then make her a dress out of a size 10 girls top to wear around :D

We go back to the clinic on Monday to find out whether or not the bone has stayed in place and if she will need surgery or we've gotten away with it.

Keep your fingers crossed for us!

This Happened.

It was only a matter of time before this one broke a bone :/

She had the brilliant idea that running down the slide would be a good thing to do.

It wasn't.

I haven't taken any proper pictures yet but here are some iPhone photos, which you've probably seen if you follow me on Instagram!

She gets her proper cast on Monday. We're going to try going to school tomorrow...trying to convince her that she should wear a sling...she doesn't like it though and won't let you tie it properly as you can see in one of the pictures!

We'll see how we go!

First Day of Kindergarten!

On Tuesday 31st January 2012, my baby girl started Kindergarten. Kindergarten. Big School. Eeep!
She was very excited and had been wearing her school "costume" around the house for weeks in preparation :)

When the big day finally arrived, obviously I took eleventy five billion photos to remember this special day.
Her uniform hanging on her door in readiness and putting on her shoes :)
(All school's in Australia wear uniforms, which I think is great, saves heaps on clothes and the 'what to wear' dilemma!)
Sweet Shot Day  

Then we went out into the lane behind our house for a quick shoot. I'd pre warned her that this would be happening and she groaned and moaned about it until I pulled out the mini chalk board =D

She came up with all these poses by herself!

Oh her teacher is in for a treat ;D

I got really lucky with the weather, I was worried about the harsh midday sun casting horrible shadows all over her but instead we got a nice overcast day. Actually the whole Summer has been overcast just about, boo :(
After my photos she insisted on writing her own sign. She struggled a bit with the fat chalk in such a little space but how cute does it look?! :)
Apparently she HAD to have some flowers in the photos..
This was all her doing, hehe, she's too funny with her little poses :D
Some funny outtakes, these just scream Charlotte! The top right hand corner one, that's the look she gives me when I ask her to do ANYTHING.

Then it was time to pack her bag, look at all that yummy food...the little piggy ate it all too!
Then it was out the front to wait for Daddy to pick us up and head to the school!
I love these, I don't know what it is but I love them :)

Some poses in front of the tree like we did on her first day of preschool (which happened to be on the exact same date last year!)

Heading into the school! You can see my Mum and my Grandparents in the distance....she asked my Mum to 'just drive down and you can watch me go in.' haha

With her Great Grandma (who we call Tiggle :D)

Terrible photo of my chins, lol. Hubby isn't a hobo, he had to sneak out of work..he's a panelbeater..they get messy :D
They had first day of school portraits done before they headed into class...but I got a note home today saying the camera had a problem and they lost them all =O They're being re taken tomorrow, which is good but I'm sad it won't be her actual first day. Luckily I have these photos!

She dived straight into the activities when we got into the class room. We hung around for a few minutes then left her in the hands of her new teacher, who I've heard is brilliant! 

The best part was as I was snapping away with my big camera the teacher said "Oh you're like me! I'm photo crazy! I take lot's of photos in this class!" I could've cried with happiness hahaha!

A quick cuddle with Grandma :)

She had a great first day but has been a bit teary in the mornings when I drop her off since then. I think it's still a bit overwhelming with so many kids around and the noise and the big loud school bell. Her teacher says she stops crying the minute they get into class, so hopefully the tears will be gone all together soon :)

Thank you for stopping by!
