So tonight we had another first. I don’t know if we are getting lucky that a lot of our firsts are coming after her first year or what, but it was no less scary at 17.5 months old.
So Cameron and I were sitting on the couch and she was bouncing around like she normally does because this child loves to bounce and jump. Well she bounced a little to hard and fell face first into my shoulder. I knew it was going to be bad with how loud she screamed and started crying. I grabbed her and was looking to see if she was ok and then saw blood coming from her mouth. I about started crying, first time she’s bleeding and she’s crying and I’m feeling like a bad mom because I knew she shouldn’t have been bouncing around. I had to pass her to my husband because I was terrified she had really hurt herself and was freaking out. He checked her over and deemed that her tooth cut her lip but it wasn’t anything major. We soothed it with some ice and a cool pacifier. Gave her some meds for any inflammation and will continue to monitor her. They say the first time is always the scariest, but man I really felt so badly for her.
And of course she didn’t learn her lesson and went right back to trying to climb on the couch. So at least we know she’s feeling better and is fearless. Cause her mom sure is more apprehensive now that is for dang sure!
