Declan meets a door frame.
(And is quite adorable in the process I must say. :)
He falls again, meeting tile this time, and then a little later, brings a high chair tray down on his head....of course in the same spot.
The healing process takes a little longer this time.....and puts on a show while it's at it. Check out how DARK that bruise is!
Just when we think it's gone and his forehead is clear again....he trips and just barely skins his head on the door. Oh yes, in the same spot.
Here's a shot of his nose. I was sitting on the couch with him, and I set him down to walk to Daddy. He takes off running, straight to the table, which he must not have been really looking at because he just ran right into it, face first. It was the weirdest thing....
I didn't get many shots of the other injuries, they weren't as photogenic. There are 3 possible reasons for all this bodily harm: 1. My kid is really clumsy! But hey, he's only 1, what do you expect?! 2. He's a boy, and that's what boys do. Hmm. 3. I'm a lousy parent. I don't like that one....scratch that! There are 2 reasons for all this bodily harm... :)
On a side note, I actually started writing this on the 5th of this month, and it originally began "Last week was a bad week for Declan...." That would have sounded waaaaaaay better than "A month ago....yadda yadda yadda." I really do intend to blog more. I have SO MANY pictures of D I want to post, going back as far as 10 months when my grandparents visited and he was super cute and learning to walk. (Perhaps this post suggests he's still learning?) You will see those pictures I promise....look for a "Vintage Declan" post...it's coming! :)
