Bonky Boy

I know I recently posted about a head injury Ty received, but wait, there's more!  We are at a pretty tough stage right now.  Ty is trying to go everywhere, but he is still a bit unstable on his feet.  Yesterday we were at the doctor office and he was cruising around like usual.  He tripped and hit his head on the leg of the exam table, causing him to get a pretty good gash across his forehead.  Then today, we went swimming, and when we were done, we were just hanging out on a lounge chair at the poolside.  When it was time to go, I was gathering our things, and Ty fell head-first off the chair and cracked his head on the cement. Unfortunately, he hit on the same place on his forehead that he did yesterday, so the gash re-opened.  He also got a pretty good goose egg and a scrape.  I'm sure that people who have had toddlers understand this stage, but I am also fairly certain those who haven't must be thinking, "What is that mother doing to her baby?!"

Poor little guy. He is so tough, I think if that would have happened to me I would have cried a whole lot more than he did. He just needs to learn to say 'You should see what the other guy looks like' :)

Sweet baby. So sad about the bumps, but I really can't believe you call him "bonky boy". I don't know if I should laugh or cry.
