Our little one is reaching 22 months in the next week and all I keep saying is "oh my baby is growing up". Her baby look is well and truly gone, and she is blossoming into an amazing little girl. Her personality is strong emotionally and physically and is extremely social and happy.
The Fall to the Bump:
Lillibug is very strong willed and likes to do things herself with no help, so imagine our complete shock when we saw her going for a big jump off the step of the back door. It all seemed to happen in slow motion, with hubby trying to get to her on time..........but no hubby didn't make it! Lillibug went face first into a concrete slab on the patio!
Now this is our first real experience of such an incident, yes we have dealt with the rashes, high temperatures, colds and flu's but this was a total shock to my system.
Lillibug started crying and clung to her Daddy while I rushed looking for a towel (first towel i could find was a spanking new white one) to clean off the dirt from her face. We were greeted with a whopper of a swollen lip and a cut just under her septum which was "gushing" blood.
Back to Reality:
Lillibug recovered pretty quick, us however it took a little longer. Is she okay? Is she in shock? Are we in shock? Are her teeth damaged? Is it my fault? Those were a lot of questions that went through our heads.
Lillibug went about her afternoon as norm then and no her septum wasn't "gushing blood" it was trickling so that was a major exaggeration on my part. A nice bump on her head later developed but went down after a few hours.
Today she is sporting a nice scab under her nose of which I am convinced she likes to show off as a badge of honour (meaning she has officially gone into her toddler years and she is delighted).
I think I have officially got my first grey hair because of it! Now we know if she is anything like me, she will have many cuts and bruises to go and so I may as well accept that it is going to happen and I cannot wrap her cotton wool.
I also know how far off today's challenge I am but when i sat down to write this is what was on my mind and went with it, and I also haven't written anything Lillbug related in a while.
