Mommy's Little Bruiser

Soren had quite the day yesterday. In the afternoon he walked from the living room, down the hall, into the bedroom, transitioning from area rug to hardwood floor to thick-ish carpeting, taking 39 consecutive unassisted steps (!)...before losing his balance and taking a header right into the corner edge of a bookcase. A few hours later, he was in his playpen, lost his balance and did a face-plant onto his ABC snail. Gave himself a nice, fat lip with that one. Poor little man.

Amazingly, both times he cried for less than a minute and was off and playing again happily as though nothing had happened. I see what my life is going to be like for the next...oh, good many...years.

Like me, he'll fall down a lot until he's about 14. Much less than me, if we luck out and he doesn't have the ear-infections of doom.
