Boo Boos and Ouchies

These two little rascals have gotten nothing but dings, scrapes, cuts, and bruises the last month. Otherwise known as "boo boos" and "ouchies". They seem to be "more than usually" accident prone these days and I've really had to stock up our medicine cabinet. Lots of polysporin, bactine, and lotsa band aids. (hello kitty and sesame street, to be precise) Avery was accidentally hit in the head with a toy about a month ago. Paranoid mommy that I am, took her to see a dermatologist to get an opinion.  I was rest assured that it was not as big of a deal as I had thought it was and it wouldn't leave a scar.....phew! Luckily it is healing nicely and is almost completely gone. Callum is still recovering from taking a fall a couple days ago. How in the world he got so many scrapes on his face in so many different areas with just one fall, I'll never be able to figure out. But he is a tough little boy and is making a quick recovery. I keep hearing that this is just the start of it, and to basically suck it up and get over it, kids are going to be kids. They sure are little troopers though! Here are some of the "very few" boo boos they've gotten over the week.

     Nothing like a hello kitty band aid to comfort Avery's ouchie

All caught up in Tangled

One of Avery's all time favorite movies these days is Disney's Tangled. She adores all the princesses but seems to like the character Rapunzel the best....oh, and of course Snow White. I can't leave out Snow White. I think it's safe to say that it's a tie between the two princesses. She has watched the Tangled movie a hundred times (not really a hundred times, but feels like it) and has starting quoting scenes from the movie. Not to mention, she knows how to put the DVD in the dvd player herself now. She always tells me, "Mommy, I want to grow my hair like Rapunzel."  She always makes me smile everytime she says that and I tell her we can certainly try. I've been thinking about maybe surprising her with a Rapunzel dress from the Disney store for her birthday. :)

Avery's Beautiful Green Plant

Avery came home from school with a beautiful green plant yesterday. I am not sure, but I think her class had planted these the beginning of the school year. I decided to take a trip over to Walmart this morning and found a nice little pot to transfer it to. I am hoping with a little love and just the right amount of water, Avery will be able to continue to watch her "lovely" plant grow.

Chocolate Face

This is my messy little guy. He loves anything that's chocolate and by the looks of it, thoroughly enjoyed his chocolate pudding cup after lunch. This is what he looked like after the container was licked clean. Amazingly, I think it only took one papertowel to clean him off, he smeared it in pretty good. If there was some kind of reward for the world's messiest toddler, he would definately take the trophy.
