Caden & Kellan are all over the place lately, crawling, climbing & pulling up to their knees. I have given them free range of their play room & the living to encourage crawling & more specifically pulling up. Their isn't anything in their play room to safely pull up on. I thought the couch & leather upholstered coffee table would be great for this sort of thing. Well the couch seems to be a little high for their taste right now & even with a bunch of their toys on top of it, the coffee table isn't all that appealing either. It seems the boys prefer the challenge of the not so stable exersaucer & jumpers. They have fallen backwards (and forwards) several times & thankfully their helmets have softened the blows. They cry out of shock or frustration, but go right back to what they were doing in a matter of seconds. Well friday night Cadens helmet could not protect his face... He was pulling up on the exersaucer, he turned to see if our friends were watching him & he slipped, falling forward/sideways & scraping his face. There was a little blood & a few tears, but nothing a little neosporin & moms hug couldn't fix right up.
These photos are from the next morning. I thought he may end up with a black eye with the one scrape being so close, it was a little red for about a day, but that was it.
He has proven to be a little toughy :o)
Looking tough, lol...
