Bonks and Boo-Boos

I think we've officially entered the stage of the constant bonk and boo-boo. The little guy is ever exploring, and with that exploration come many tumbles and slips. Most don't leave a mark, but some do. In just the past week, we've had two brusises to the forehead and one cut above the lip. Those'll make a mama's heart flip over!
But entering this stage also means we're starting to re-experience the world through Andrew's eyes, one of the oft-touted perks of parenthood. It's so amazing the things he notices...like a fleck of lint underneath the bookcase or the crunchy noise a cracker wrapper makes...and the delight he takes in them. This blessing just keeps getting better.

So sweet! This last picture showing his two little teeth is ADORABLE--- and of course, Alec had to check them out, too. :) Happy Sunday, E!

Just love his smocked cowboy outfit and how it matches his blue eyes!

I love, love Andrew's bottom two teeth! So cute! I hope he has a "boo boo bunny!"

Awwww....oh my! What an adorable beautiful little boy you have :) He is precious. Our kiddos are a bit older than toddler days- but it seems like just yesterday that we were exploring noises from wrappers too! Fun days. I love what Rhonda said about " a boo bo bunny" that sounds like a cute idea for boo boos! You could put it away with your bandaids and bunny can come out for boo boo kisses when needed! LOL Our kids love the pretty bandaids that cost a small fortune too of course (the brown ones are boring apparently). We also use the Topricinkids natural pain cream for our little ouchies. Well, enjoy these days as they are so wonderful! Kids are the best!
