While this move was super exciting and needed, moving in and of itself is something I am SO OVER DOING. Josh and I have moved every single year for the last five years. Some have been big moves to different countries while others have been smaller moves to different apartments but moving is moving and it stinks. Add in pregnancy, a toddler, and a resident schedule and let's just call it downright miserable. We somehow survived packing, moving out, and moving in with the help of a few extremely generous friends who donated their time and muscles to our somewhat pathetic cause.

And obviously as her Mom, I feel AWFUL that this happened. I know it was an accident and there was really nothing I could have done to prevent it, but no one wants their babies to get hurt and we all know seeing children this young in a cast is not the "norm." She's been in her purple cast for almost two weeks now and I have to say that overall, she's taking this whole thing like a champ. She's slept pretty well at night and has gotten used to dragging her leg around or scooting on her bum around the house. She really hasn't tried to put weight on her leg and other than a few moments of frustration each day, she acts as if nothing is different or wrong. She didn't even cry when they put the cast on. She just kept saying "I get purpuh. I get purpuh."
The fact that this happened in the summer definitely stinks. They have waterproof sleeves for the casts, but with her dragging her leg around, she easily rips holes in the plastic and so I hesitate to let her take an actual bath or fully submerge her in the blow up pool. However, we've still been able to have some water fun outside.
We've also been to the park where she can at least enjoy some time in the swing. Even though I know all she wants to do is get down and climb around with all the other kids.
