Another Ouchie.

Carters black eye from two weeks ago was finally almost gone... Then this happened. Another ouchie yesterday. First he fell while trying to step down onto the outside patio and now has a little concrete/road rash. Then as he was attempting to run across the living room not 20 minutes later, he fell into the corner of the ottoman in the exact same spot. My poor baby. It's the worst when you see it happening in slow motion and just can't get there in time to catch them. We spent most of the afternoon sitting on the couch with ice on his forehead. I called the pediatrician and talked to the nurse who told me this, too, will most likely turn into another black eye. I'm starting to get very discouraged about getting a professional 1 yr photo taken of him. Not to mention I am so tired of people asking, what happened to him? or look at that shiner. Leave us alone, yes, I know he looks beat up, no, I didn't do it and yes, I'm pretty sure this will not be the last of it. Thank heaven for little boys right?

(I was trying to get a good picture of his forehead and I caught this one mid-clapping. You can see the movement streaks in his hands. I think his face is hilarious. He really does smile and laugh with his mouth wide open and I thought I needed to clarify this, because it also looks like he is screaming. He's happy, I promise. It's just another Carter characteristic.)

Oh man! I'd say poor kid but I think it's more poor MOMMY! At least he's still very happy!

Oh I know what you mean about people asking, but hey at least he is still happy. Stuff like this happens all the time. I think its more emotional for you than him. How are you feeling these days. Its been really hot here in Va.
Take care

Poor baby boy! But that's probably just how things go for little guys... I remember my little brother always had a bruise or bump on his head when he was a toddler :) I love the cake pictures too! They are so classic. And i think your cake was darling. All they need are lots of sprinkles!
