The first shiner.

Well, my little sugar plum got her first shiner.

She took a nosedive off my bed and face planted it on my nightstand. A nasty, ugly purple bruise appeared almost instantly on her little cheek, and it just kills me to see it.

She cried for a short bit and then she was over it. Didn't break any skin inside or outside her mouth, and her teeth are just fine.

But if this was so hard, how will I deal with it if she ever breaks a bone?

I have a feeling I'm headed into uncharted territory with my now climbing, running, jumping, energetic and fiesty little firecracker.

Anyone know where I can buy bubble wrap in bulk?

I feel for you. Check out my post called "Legend of the First Balloon" to read about Aidan's second big banger. The first one's my own fault and I haven't gotten up the courage to write about it yet.

Happy New Year and God bless!

oh poor little thing! i remember there was a perpetual goose egg on grayson's forehead until he was five or six. my advice is NOT to go over to my blog to see what we've progressed to now! it does get easier, in a very weird way.

give that sweet little baby a kiss!

Taylor broke his right arm when he was one. He broke he left arm when he was two.

He seems to be on a break these last two years, but oh yes, so much fun!

Miss you woman! How are things?

I know ... it is scary the first time they hurt themselves and show it via a bruise or something. I live in fear of a broken bone. Not ever having had one myself, I don't know what to say about it or tell him to feel.
