at least we'd be very fashionable if we were hit by a tornado

Last night there was a tornado warning in our area. I didn't know about it until I was in bed and Jenn texted me about it from Korea. It makes total sense that someone on the other side of the world would alert me to the weather in my town. I normally check the weather 12 time a day but it's said "rainy with a chance of t-storm" for 8 days now so I stopped paying attention. I made a mental list of which essentials to grab in case we had to take shelter under the stairs:
1. water
2. Annabelle's bows
3. my Channing Tatum scrapbook (I'M JUST KIDDING, CHRISTOPHER! I don't have a Channing Tatum scrapbook. I have a Josh Turner scrapbook.)

Other than the tornado things have been pretty quiet around here. I take that back. The other day I was cutting Annabelle's fingernail that's approximately half the size of a ladybug and I accidentally cut her finger. There's was blood, lots of screaming, AND IT WAS VERY TRAUMATIC. To add insult to injury, the next morning I took her to the doctor where she got two shots. We She had a tough 24 hours. At least she looked cute getting the shots. She has a great stylist.
Every morning after I've stuck her pacifier back in her mouth to buy 18 more seconds of sleep, I feed her then let her play on the big bed. She kicks around for a while, smiles, and tries to laugh.
Except for getting her nails clipped and being stabbed in the leg she lives a very relaxed life.
I can't even begin to tell you how much I love her tutu skirt.

Girls got style! I just love her. So how far are you from Nashville? You'd think I would know this being from TN and all. It is looking like I'll be in Nashville quite a bit for the next year (slight exaggeration) and I'd be delighted if our paths crossed :)

Ugh, I absolutely hated clipping my babies nails. I would have rather changed a ton of nasty diapers...

Cutting part of your first child's finger off is definitely a rite of passage! I did the same to Sam and frantically ran next door to my neighbor's house because she stocks things like, idk, BANDAIDS, and inexperienced me just assumes no one will ever suffer any injury under my watch! I'll let you guess how many bandaids I have in my bathroom right now. (And if you guessed 4 boxes, you're right.)

I cut Maddie's, too. And cried. Andrew made a baby sized Bandaid out of a real one. It was the saddest thing you've ever seen. So I kept mittens on her well past when she needed them.

Annabelle is just gorgeous. And her bow collection is epic.
