Oh Baby!



I recently won a copy of this book from Bookfool. And guess what? We had our first major baby trauma. It actually wasn't that big of a deal. Noodlebug fell down and split his lip open. At first, I thought he had knocked out one of his teeth. He didn't but there was blood everywhere and I was completely traumatized. He bounced back quickly and his lip doesn't even look that bad. I think I cried more than he did. He is a tough little guy. As he gets more confident with his walking (running) he seems to fall down a lot more. I could wrap the entire house in bubble wrap but that just isn't feasible. So, we babyproof what we can and hope for the best. I have always prided myself in being calm in tense situations but I am learning that when it comes to my baby, all bets are off.

Hope you all had a calm, uneventful weekend!

Poor little Noodlebug. It is so hard on Mommies when our little ones get hurt or sick.

That reminds me of a friend who had bought a football helmet for her then three-year-old son. He loved that helmet so much that he would rarely be seen without it. My friend didn't plan it this way, but that helmet served her son well whenever he did a faceplant, fell from the swing, etc.

Sounds like Aidan knows how to cowboy up. That's great!

It is amazing how quickly they recover. We are always more traumatised than they are.

Poor little guy! You make me remember what my little guy looked like all the time last year. He always had bruise or goose-egg on his head. the good news it passes, he hasn't had one now for a really long time!

I remember the same thing happening to my son. And 10 years later I still feel panic rising just thinking about it. It is reallly ridicuolus but I can't help it! :)
Have fun at the fair!
