Ducky Diaries: Start the day with a bang....

Start the day with a bang....

Remember how my last post stated that Bear can now get out of his bed on his own???  Well, the back story is that he has been in a toddler bed since 14 months, but we purchased an extendable rail for the side to keep him from getting out on his own, and until recently it worked.  

Then one morning while I was in the shower I heard a loud thump..   D.i.c and I both went running from opposite ends of the house only to find Bear laying all kinds of haphazardly on the floor in front of the foot of his bed...  Which was about a 2.5 foot drop.   Nothing major but nothing we wanted him to keep doing since he landed on his head.   Poor boy doesn't need more problems on top of what's already going on.

So we had a talk with him about how he was such a big boy that he could climb out of bed we were taking down his rail.  It has worked beautifully. He was so excited.

  He slides out on his belly onto the floor (all of 7 inches from his mattress to the floor) and plays in his room quietly until he falls asleep and we put him back into his bed....  Rinse and Repeat, every night.  
Simple! Right??? Usually. 

Last night about 20 minutes after putting him down for the night we were downstairs watching t.v. when all of the sudden a THUD shook the ceiling.  I looked at D.i.c. and said "That wasn't a wall kick!!!"  And we both took off like bats out of hell..... 

Poor Bear had somehow managed to go face first out of bed (obviously the details are fuzzy.).  We don't know if he dove knowingly or somehow went the wrong direction???  He knows to go feet first, so I genuinely think he was sitting up and lost his balance. Which still happens a lot with the whole sitting thing....

My poor guy got his first official injury related bloody nose.  :(      It was full face contact with our carpeted floor.   It just sucks so bad because of his low muscle tone, he doesn't have the reflexes to put his hands out first to brake a fall.  So he really took the slam full force.  

I am so ill equipped for injuries of the little people kind.  I just acted a damn fool.  The wailing, the " my poor baby!!!" " Come to momma"....  In actuality, after 5 minutes he was fine, chewing the wash cloth used on his nose, and attempting to get into my breast pump bag.  I on the other hand was certain we needed to keep him up for at least 3 days. You know, because of the concussion and all.. that he didn't have.   Long story short, he's fine, I had a heart attack, life is going on like normal.....

But on a brighter note, I may have just spent our life savings on the cutest family/baby pictures ever!  And I may have just told my husband how much I spent and he may have just hit a bunch of numbers in my ear and struggled to be nice to me.  

That my friends is why it's definitely okay to share news over the phone. 

And in my defense once he sees how cute our babies look he'll understand.......
