On the run...
Daniel turned 13 months, and decided that it was time to start walking unassisted. He has been steadily increasing his number of steps each day, and there seems to be a direct (and opposite) correlation to the decrease in frequency and duration of naps he is taking. Thank goodness this means that he is pretty wiped by the end of the day, and the struggle to get him to sleep has lessened to a degree. Once he's down, he sleeps well through the night... it's just getting him there that has been the challenge!
This also means that in the last three days he has done the following:
Thursday: fallen and bashed his eye on the wooden Deacon's bench in the living room. This one resulted in a trip to the pediatrician for a look-see, as I was nervous because it was his eye. Of course by the time we got there, the swelling had gone down considerably.
Friday: pulled a picture frame off a table, falling on it resulting in a purple welt on one temple with a cut, and a cut across the cheek on the same side.
Saturday: giggling and zipping around the house away from Mommy on his "sea-legs". I have no idea what he fell on, as this time around he didn't even cry. But there is a purple bruise blossoming on the opposite temple from Friday's welt/cut.
