Harper Sue fell on her face today (face planted on a curb actually) and while this is certainly not the first time she has used her head as a kickstand it IS the first time she’s had a bump and visible bruise.
It’s a big milestone for all of us. Amazing how brief her anguish was (less than 2 minutes of crying) and how soon she wanted to focus on telling the story of what happened and getting back out in the action.
Rob and I trade off the role of Bath Time Guardian. This agreement was reached after realizing that this is one of the best times of the day with Harper Sue. She LOVES the bath and in particular pulling the plug and swimming while the water disappears down the drain.
Harper Sue has figured out how to make the harmonica sing. This discovery happened only after 6 weeks of occasional attempts and several sessions of Mama demonstrating. It’s so fun to hear her make the joyous sound.
