Head Injury

We had our first head injury the other day. Constance and I were happily playing outside on our driveway. She of course was crawling everywhere. At some point she thought I looked like a jungle gym and was crawling over my legs. She has done this several times in the house and has never had a problem. However she fell somehow and hit her forehead. I felt awful and of course Constance was screaming. I brought her in the house and the knot above her eyes started to swell and look bluish. There was a not a way to reach Keith so I gave my mom a call. She said it sounded like she broke a blood vessel and to put some ice on it and keep her up an hour. She was back to her old self later that evening.

This happened several weeks ago but I forgot to post it. Constance had woken up at 5 in the morning and after trying to get her to back down I decided to feed her. I sat on the couch with her and my husband asked if I wanted him to change her diaper. I told him that would be great and much to Constance's dismay, she was scooped off my lap and taken to her bedroom. She was crying and very upset since she was taken from her food source. Very clearly however, in the middle of her crying she said, "Mama" really loud! She has not said it since then so I guess it was just a fluke but I will take what I can. It made being up so early a little easier!

Constance still loves vanilla yogurt and did not seem to mind the strawberry yogurt that we fed her the other day. I hate feeding her "artificial" stuff though. Another new flavor we started yesterday was prunes. Keith said that was one of his favorite things to eat when he was a little tyke and insisted that Constance would love them as well. So we tried it and she seems to accept it just fine. I have only given it to her in little doses though as I am not sure how they will affect her bad diaper situation.
