Battle scar

Well Damien has his first official battle scar. He fell head first onto one of the bottom drawers of the crib. The drawer was open since I was getting toys out and he was sitting in front of it. I didn't catch him in time.  :'(

He cried initially but is smiling and playing now. I'm putting a cold washcloth on it periodically for the swelling, which has already gone down a lot. His eye seems to be just fine. It follows movement and such just like the other one and doesn't appear to be hurt. I'm keeping a close watch on it and will take him in if it gets worse or doesn't improve.

Poor guy, I feel so bad. I know how that kind of injury feels and I hate to see him in any pain.  Oddly enough, I told myself yesterday that I needed to put a rubber guard on those since he could easily fall onto an open drawer.

  • Oh noooo. Kisses make it all better.
  • Awe.  I'm sure he'll be fine.  Keep reminding yourself of that mommy.  Lillyana fell off my couch onto the carpet (only about 5 inches) and I was a mess for 3 days.  I know how much it hurts to see them fall.

  • I'm sure there will be many more bumps and bruises along the way. I'm just grateful this wasn't worse than it could have been. All I can do is try to keep him from harm as much as I can and be there to love him and take care of him when I can't.
