Watching your little one learn to walk is amazing! It is exciting, and a little sad when you think about how fast they are growing. When my daughter walks, it is a proud moment for all of us. But learning to walk is a tough job. It's not always easy or fun. There are bumps and falls. Smacks and thumps. There are face plants and teeth in the forehead. Learning to walk is just dangerous.
Ever heard of 'bad things come in threes'? Well Sweet Thing had 3 spills in one day. They were no ordinary spills. Not something a kiss and a dance around the room would cure.
Spill #1 Face plant. Outcome: Tooth in lip = Fat Lip
These were taken after the first fat lip, which was the worst one.
So learning to walk is full of ups and downs. Fortunately for me the ups far outweigh the downs.
