BROOKLYN'S FALL
First off I must say that I have always been very protective in making sure the gate is ALWAYS up so that Brooklyn doesn't fall down the stairs. She walks up and down the stairs all the time with no help. Well Mariyah went outside to get something and during that few seconds Brooklyn decided to ride her little toy down the cements stairs. Yup...ouch! I heard her screaming and we ran out there and she was bleeding from her nose and she was all banged up. I felt HORRIBLE!!!!! Poor girl:(. Overall she is doing well and I feel bad for her face because it's swollen and she keeps on saying mommy owie on my face hurt. I feel bad because I am sure it hurts and she keeps on telling me and of course at this age of 20 months she wont let me put ice on it or anything. At least over time it will heel and she wont be in as much pain. Thank goodness that she was on her little tryes bike because I feel like that protected her from sustaining a possible head injury. She was eating a banana while I tried to get some pictures of her face,but of course that seemed hard to do for some reason.

Oh poor girl! Our two girls are matched set with Olivia's scraped up face and black eye! It is the worst when your babies are hurt. Don't feel guilty though, you can't stop every fall. That's what I keep telling myself anyway. :)

Oh sad! Her eye looks like it really hurts! At least now she knows why to stay away from the stairs. It's impossible to watch them every second.

OUCH! That doesn't look fun. Not at all! Little ones are built to endure things like that. Good thing!

Man, I hate when "life" happens like that! Poor girl! I'm sure she was protected from a serious head injury! Count your blessings & give her extra kisses to make it feel better!!
