I don't know the number...

Today while Lily was taking a nap, Adelyn and I were sitting at the kitchen counter together. Ade was drawing a picture of her and "her ladies." She was being cute. She drew a little person and said, "Look a lower case person." I had some change out and she asked if she could have the pennies. She loves to collect change and put it in her piggy bank, so I let her have the pennies. She asked me to help her count the pennies. I looked and there were only four, so I told her I knew she could count them without help. She said she couldn't. I moved one toward her and asked her how to start. She said, "Five." I laughed and asked again. This time she said, "W." I laughed again and then she looked at me and smiled a great big smile. It was just a nice afternoon. Lily woke up and colored with us for a few minutes. Kevin called and said he was going to come home for a few minutes because he had a meeting at 4:00 and another at 6:00. I was excited. Ade and Lily were running around playing together being silly. The next thing I knew Ade was coughing and choking. I ran to her just as a penny flew out of her mouth. I could tell there were more. I was frantically asking her if she could breathe and yelling to Kevin on the phone. She calmed down and told me she needed to throw up. She threw up and the strawberries she had for lunch had me scared to death for a minute. Anyway, the x-ray shows just one penny. The doctor asked her how many she swallowed and she told him the same thing she told me, "I don't know the number." She had four to start with...one she coughed out and one is in her stomach. We can't find the other two anywhere! I just want to find them before Lily does. She used to be the only one that I would worry about putting money in her mouth!

She and Isaac have matching x-rays! Do you get to look through the poo to make sure it passes? That was so fun. We are grateful she's okay. I'm glad she only swallowed "W". The chrome came off Isaac's magnetix.. I wonder what will happen to a penny.

We need to be calling eachother like 5 times a day just checking to see if our households are alive. Seriously, after talking about all the stress on the phone today, this is just what you needed. I've worried about Brayden though. Ty and Anna leave all the little toys everywhere. It's amazing kids live! Glad she's ok!

I'm sorry Ade. Marolyn, that must have been so frightening! We are so thankful that she is okay. Maybe the other ones are in her bank.

Oh my, Marolyn! Glad she is okay, but now I'm getting really nervous for Shaelynn. Her brothers seem to collect every marble known to man, and they love to ask for pennies and then I find them on the floor 20 minutes later! NO MORE!! We love you guys...we are planning to go down to Vegas for spring break in a few weeks, we'll have to meet up for a little bit.

Yikes. At least it's a penny and not something toxic though, right? Has it passed?
