C fell down the stairs! Can you imagine how horribly guilty I felt. As if turning around to the sound of thudding and seeing my baby fall head over heels and land face first wasn't bad enough, he had a massively messy bloody nose. This was traumatic for both of us.
Amazingly, he is ok. Once he calmed down and cuddled a bit, he started smiling. Then we took a nap together and he felt so much better. Once I put him down, he went straight back to the stairs and started climbing again. Ugh!
You can bet I said many, many prayers of gratitude that day for the protection given to my baby boy. So much worse could have happened.
