Mara just can't catch a break lately! She's crawling a lot and getting into everything, and her favorite thing is to pull herself up (just up to her knees), hold on to the tv stand, and play with things on it. Usually we try to get her away from it right away and distract her with something else. Well, this morning I didn't get there in time, and she slipped and hit her head. Ouch!

I couldn't get a great picture of it, but she has a big bruise on the middle of her forehead. I'm just glad it's not worse! It kind of looks like faded ashes on her forehead for Ash Wednesday (that's the first thing I thought of when I saw it!).

I promise, she doesn't always look this sad! She's actually been pretty smiley the past couple days now that she's feeling a little better! She was even happy and playing later on today, once she forgot that her head hurt!

I'm so happy it's Friday! This has been a very long week!

Too funny! I love seeing war wounds on little ones! It shows how spunky they can be...or clutzy?

Poor thing. Our babies are just on the same wavelength lately, with ear infections and facial injuries. When will it calm down?

I was thinking the same thing Celestia! I think we both need a break!

Poor Mara - this will be the first of many battle wounds, I'm afraid. Hopefully you'll get a break from the illnesses & injuries soon.
