Miss Molly has her first noticeable bruise on her noggin. Yesterday she was on the changing table doing her lovely trick of flipping over on her stomach and crawling backwards down the changing pad knocking over everything stored at the end of the table. After a couple times of trying to flip her back over so I could get her cotton diaper on (if you don't get it right the first time you have to start all over) I gave up and let her crawl. Of course she immediately changes course and makes a turn and her booty is coming right towards me. I immediately push her back onto the table and her head bonks into the wooden frame around the top of her changing table. She's quiet for a second and then starts to wail. Poor little one had a nice red welt where her head hit the wood. There's a bruise (it's faint, but I can see it clear as day) today and I know it's the first of many, but I still feel bad for being a contributing factor. She's bonked her head plenty (sitting upright, scootin', crawling, pulling herself up, etc. all leads to head bonks), but this is the first time there's been a lasting mark. First of many.
