hannibal habbers

the baby was attacked by the appliance dolly yesterday.  i think she was trying to climb it.  anyways it fell over on her and took out a few of her teeth.  she was pinned underneath when mommy and daddy both came running to rescue her.  we picked her out, dusted her off, and then she started spouting blood and teeth.  it was a sad sight.  we just threw her in the minivan and took her down the street to st. al’s.  (i hope living next to the emergency room will not become convenient.)  the good thing is that there isn’t much waiting at the e.r. when you are holding a blood soaked baby in one hand and her teeth in the other.  i was afraid her mouth would have been all cut up.  it was a metal cross plate that hit her in the face, edge first.  fortunately the gash in her gums is not too serious and she didn’t receive any other facial damage.  unfortunately, this is still enough ugly to last her until she is seven.

i had to fish her teeth out in the car.  one was hanging by a thread and interfering with some serious thumb sucking.  anyways, you would have thought this was enough dental trauma and she would have laid off.  but no, what does she do?  she dives head first into the baking cabinet, taking the cap of the olive oil jug right to the gums.

then an hour later she goes head first off the patio swing.  jael asks, “why does the baby keep bonking her face off like that?”  i don’t know.  but her auntie piolet brought her a box of fruit popsicles and made it all better.  hannibal habbers ate three.  and she deserved them.

    And on top of that, she got the flu.

    Which she gave to Grandma Sandy, Cousin Zahara and Granddad. Grandma Sandy was looking for an excuse to stay home and do laundry and unpack the camping gear. In between naps
