As I stated in the last post, 2009 has started off with a bang and poor Simon has gotten the brunt of it so far! Being a typical toddler (and a fearless one at that), he takes multiple spills every day. I am amazed, though, how resilient little kids are, and he very rarely gets more than a little bump as a result of a fall. However, on New Year's Day, Simon took a slide down the stairs on his face. He didn't go too far, but it was far enough to produce a carpet burn down his forehead and nose. I tried to take some photos of the bruiser, but he does not stand still for long! Then later that night, he was goofing off in the bedroom and fell right into the corner of the floor molding, causing a gash out of the corner of his eye. He definitely looks like a rough and tough boy now! Reminds me of another toddler we used to have running around this house...Top photo is Simon, after the carpet burn but before the eye cut. Bottom photo is Jamie at 17 months old with his bruiser face, complete with stitches in his forehead.
