Well, Harper has managed to get yet
another knot on her head! I guess she's trying to get the world record. She's certainly well on her way to surpassing the number of bumps Hallie had during her toddler days! She may even surpass her own daddy from *his* toddler days! And according to his mom, he walked around with a goose egg for years!
Nonetheless, Harper has had bump after bump on her sweet little noggin. I believe this may be her 4th. Maybe 5th. Thankfully, a bump has always popped up, and she has never acted abnormal. Today a she was morning her own business, walking around outside while Daddy trimmed Charley's (our dog) fur. It was beautifully sunny, so she and I both had on sunglasses. She was very excited about the sunglasses (which happened to belong to 18 month old Hallie back in the day). It all went downhill from there.
She started off all Hollywood cool
She strutted around the yard before heading back up the driveway to oversee Charley's trim.
I told Jonathan I was going to put something away inside, to keep an eye on her. As I turned to go inside, he didn't get "ok" out of his mouth before we heard a thud followed by screaming.
These were under a screaming baby. (Taken long after the fact...Harper got monkey ice and lots of love before we returned to the crash sight.). These babies fell into two pieces when we picked them up. Harper said they were "shash" and wanted to throw them away. As soon as she threw them into the trash can, she cried and immediately wanted them back out! Sentimental like her Mommy.
Daddy tried to snap the bruise but caught gorgeous baby blues instead.
Poor thing! She's a trooper, heading to RahRah's for a little while.
She got a ponytail to take her mind off the scrape and bump! Cute!!
