Charlotte's 1st Boo Boo

~ Still (kind of smiling) even with a crack on her noggin! ~
~ Miss Charlotte & her 1st Boo Boo (with many more to come) ~
Well it finally happened - Charlotte is a WALKER - but with that will come falls and spills, owies and boo boos ... and that is what happened today! We were standing in the kitchen between the dining room chair and the cabinet drawers. I was trying to put her coat on - which she HATES - and she dodged the coat and decided to sit down - well she was close to my leg when she sat so her bum hit my shin and it propelled her forward - right in to the corner edge of the cabinet! She freaked out - you know that cry with no noise and breathing? Yup, that one! She has huge tears and her head swelled up with blood under the skin ... I ran her across the street to my nurse neighbor and she said she felt she was okay. Luckily she was - she has a nice slice with a red scrape around it as well as a black and blue on its way ... and a big ol' egg on her noggin! Poor baby! Aside from that though she is doing great! She went in for her 1 year checkup last weekend and could not get her shots since she actually had ANOTHER ear infection! *sigh* ... so she is on an antibiotic for 10 days and will go back on February 3rd for a recheck and shots. She did get weighed and measured though - she was 22 lbs 8 oz and was 29" long ... that put her at 67th percentile for weight and 36th percentile for her height - she is almost 7 pounds lighter than Jaden was at a year old ... she is little squirt but full of smiles and giggles! Love my girls!
Have a great week!
Love ~ The Clark Family of Four ~ Rebekah, Jason, Jaden & Miss Charlotte

Awww...Ryan just got his first owie too! Poor babies! Wow...Jaden was a chunky monkey eh? I love chubby babies! Ryan is so much bigger than Jenna was at 1 year. He was 24 lbs at his 1 year appt. Jenna was around 19 when she turned one! Gotta love how they are so different!

Have a great week!
