So, I am learning that some kids are just more prone to mishaps than others. Emma is very active and she has not had 1/2 of the bumps and bruises that Sophie has!

My poor baby has had her fair share of minor injuries in less than 5 months. Sophie has a small scar by her left eye from a run-in with a board book---courtesy of Emma. She has a matching scar by her right eye from falling on the sidewalk over the fourth of July...I am using Mederma Scar Cream in hopes to make the scars fade a bit faster. :( She also has a fading bruise by her left eye from falling against her tricycle handle and YES she was wearing a helmet!!!

My sweet pea has acquired TWO new boo-boo's (her words :)) in the past 48 hours. The first happened on Wednesday when playful roughhousing resulted in a bloody lip and VERY bruised chin. No, don't flame was MY FAULT. :( I was tossing the girls onto my king size bed & somehow Sophie catapulted over the bed and onto the floor landing face down. The guilt over that is KILLING me......

Then last night as I was cleaning up the kitchen the girls were settling into our bed to watch Strawberry Shortcake. I heard a loud *CLUNK* and found Sophie crying on the floor. According to Emma (who always tells the God's honest truth even when she IS at fault) Sophie was trying to jump and fell off of the bed. Unfortunately she hit her forehead on the night stand resulting in 2 large goose eggs.

After some TLC, Motrin and an ice pack Sophie was back to her happy self. I am sure that she woke up with a heck of a headache this morning though. Hopefully that is the end of her injuries for a while...a LONG while!!!

Oh poor baby! (I love the photo of Emma putting a booboo-pack on her Strawberry Shortcake doll too.) Poor Sophie; Allie was our accident-prone kid too and still is. Every day, she'll tell me in great detail about how she twisted her ankle or bruised her knee...or... Then there was the time that Eliza was on the tireswing and she wanted to be done so I said, okay, which usually meant, let go of the rope and lean back so mommy can lift you off. Well, I said "okay" too soon and wasn't ready to lift her off, she leaned back, let go and fell about 4 feet down to the grass with a thud! Oh my. I felt terrible and was so worried that I broke her neck or back. Oy!!! I don't think I've ever "thrown" her though like you did!! Give Sophie a big hug and kiss from me.

It sounds like Abigail and Sophie have some things in common! Abigail is the so clumsy and always has "boo-boos" too!
