She has a new site and it's better than ever! It doesn't hurt that my little Jenna is featured on two of the cards. Check it out here!

Last week was awful! Jenna fell at school and chipped and fractured her front tooth vertically, which resulted in surgery on Friday morning to remove the tooth. It was painful physically and emotionally for all of us! Our beautiful little girl now has a big gap in her smile and most likely will until her permanent tooth comes in. The tooth is actually in two pieces! She was sedated and had an IV and then proceeded to get sick after coming out of the anesthetic. We are doing a follow up to see if there is a bridge or spacer they can put in, until then we are letting her heal! She is as cute as ever to me and was SUCH a trooper through the whole process.
Here are a few pictures.
The last picture I took of Jenna with her smile and teeth intact!
The tooth and chin after the fall at daycare.
Her smile this morning after surgery!

Today you are 32 months! December will be here before we know it. Well, maybe not to you. You talk about your birthday every day and I don't think it can come fast enough for you.
This month you've continued to suprize us with how smart you are, while at the same time showing quite an attitude. You still tend to act like a broken record with things you repeat 1,453,759 times. Your favorite one, "I need a snack." You weren't even out of bed this morning before you said that one. My favorite one, "Mommy, you're my favorite person in the whole wide world."
Your love of friends is so fun to watch. Any little kid is your friend and you are quite popular at daycare. If you see any of the neighbors outside you automatically will get your shoes on and say, "I want to see my friends!"
This month you got to go to a reunion and see all of your Grandma and Grandpa's up north. We also went to a Splash Park with your other Grandma and Grandpa and GG's. You always have lots of fun with your family, and I think it's safe to say they have lots of fun with you too.
So, happy 32nd month! You always keep us guessing what's going to come out of your mouth next. You are a joy, even when you are a brat, and I love you more than words can say. I hope you keep your confidence and social skills as you get older! Love you honey!

I know, she's 2.5 and I keep hearing it will continue through the trying 3's also! UGH - I'm exhausted already! A few weeks ago, we went to a family reunion. It was awful. I know she's not great in crowds and there were a lot of people there, but she was bad! Bad in the sense that I sat in the car with her most of the day watching Clifford the Big Red Dog bad! She could not even handle it! She wanted cake, she wanted candy, she wanted to leave, and on and on.
I recently tried to get her pictures taken professionally. I don't have the proofs yet, and the lady is really good, but we'll see how good she really is! I was so tired after the 1.5 hours of the shoot, I wanted to cry. Jenna was not good, the bride of chocolate and smarties didn't even phase her! What?! That always works!
"No, I don't want to sit there! I'm not going to smile, I don't want wear that, I don't want to go there! No, I'm never going to do that!"
If she did "smile" it was her fake cheesy camera smile. Honey - that is not what I'm paying all this money for! So, more to come on those, but I don't think we will be doing professional photos again until she is five!
Give me strength, and a mute button, and a vacation!

It was dark but as I got closer I saw something dark all over her shirt and her face! I stared to panic, I wasn't thinking totally straight since I had just woken up. She told me she was hurt and then said she had a boogie and needed a Kleenex! It turns out she had a bloody nose! Oh my gosh, I calmed down and cleaned her up. I had to turn a light on so she started asking to watch cartoons, and read, and get a drink because she was "pretty thirsty".
Anyway, I had to take the sheets off her bed and stain guard them and get her cleaned up and back down to sleep. So, all is fine. What the heck, was she picking her nose while she was sleeping? Who will ever know!

One of my best friends came over the other day with her newborn baby girl and Jenna got to meet baby Ella at just one month old. Jenna was in love with her, trying to feed her her bottle, sing to her, rock her, and count her toes!
I think it's the beginning of a lifelong friendship!

Anyway, she rides it a lot and this is what she says,
"Yee-haw! I'm a cowboy! Looking for the treasure, ARGH!"
For some reason, she gets cowboys and pirates confused. That's okay, when I was little I used to get rubberbands and band-aids confused.
I love her anyway, whatever she is!
