Accident prone

We've had a bit of an accident-prone week.  First, she turned the corner in our hallway just a little too soon and bumped her head really good (you can't see it under her bangs).  

Then Saturday night we were playing in the guest room/office while Nick was checking his email.  She did a free-fall into the pillows, but misjudged how far out she was and conked onto the headboard--notice the bruise starting a fun color above her right eye.  Luckily the puffiness has gone down, but I had some explaining to do to her Sunday School teachers.  

And, yet one more fall happened yesterday.  She was trying to wear my flip-flops around the house, and also thought it would be a good idea to carry her step stool for some reason (I was folding laundry in the next room).  I heard her burst into tears, and when I turned around I could tell that she had hit her mouth...and then the blood came.  She was brave and sucked on some ice to make it feel better...check out her upper right lip.  

Nice, huh?  Hopefully the next few days will go a little smoother.  I told the Children's Director at church all about her accidents so that she wouldn't get any ideas and end up turning me into CPS--ugh!

Oh, we have been there! Don't you love all the blood and then the bruises and then worrying about whether people think you beat your kid?! Isn't it great?! :) Hang in there! And Gabi - Look out for those walls! They move when you least expect it!
