You live, you learn...

So, Parker and I were just going about our day this afternoon...playing...and crawling...and walking while holding onto my hands or furniture... as happy as can be....




Then...she starts trying to balance and get situated like she is about to take a step and come towards me (see picture below). Well...she did let go of the couch...she did take a step...but then tumbled forward, briefly bracing herself with her arms and ultimately bumping her head on the tile floor. I tried to get to her as fast as I could (I was only a reach away), but time seemed to move in slow motion. She only cried for about 30 seconds and was fine, but then I wanted to cry! I felt (and still feel) so terrible! So now she has a little bump on her forehead. I guess this will be the first of many 'boo-boos' to come...

You are right sweet girl, this will be the first of many! I know it breaks your heart but it sure does happen. Bless her little bones!

She is getting so big! Continue to enjoy your time off from school and don't be so hard on yourself - as you said - this bump will be one of many as she learns to walk and run!

Thank you for being so diligent in your blogging! We are truly enjoying the photos and comments.

Much love to you all!

Many bumps and bruises to come...trust me! She's fine...babies are much more resilient than any of us give them credit for. Pretty soon she'll be running everywhere...poor mom!
