First Blood II

Hmm I wondered how long it would take…How long until we saw first blood from Daniel…he is much more gung ho in the pulling up and letting go than I remember Holden so I have been waiting for it. Yesterday he discovered the stairs…I figured any day…yesterday he bumped his lip on the stairs and there was a little blood, but I figured it wasn’t note worthy…
Today, now today has been a doozy…big brother has been a little rougher and Daniel just seemed extra sensitive… I headed up stairs for a minute…Daddy was downstairs getting ready to paint…with a ladder…yep, Daniel pulled himself up on the ladder(just his hand) and apparently slid down with top lip meeting bottom rung:( there was a lot of blood…he cut the part that connects the lip to the gums…but i can’t see how badly, as usual he screams if I try to look in his mouth!
He recovered quickly so it could have been to bad, BUT I felt like mother of the year, just like Holden’s first. I wonder how long until we see something like this.

    Amber - It's called a diastema, and Axel has done this twice. It didn't grow back together, but he seemed to be fine after the initial incident. Poor Daniel, the bumps and bruises begin.ReplyCancel

    Jessica and Jason - Oh poor buddy! And poor mommy. We mommies still hurt long after they've forgotten and gone back to their busy little worlds.ReplyCancel

    michael - Poor kid. Instead of feeling guilty yourself, you should have just blamed Tom for leaving the ladder out (even though he was still using it).ReplyCancel
