Blood, Sweat, & Tears

Dylan's baby book will read something like this....
First solid food - Rice Cereal - 5/12/07
First time you sat up by yourself - 6/19/07
First time you pulled to stand - 7/17/07
First time you made Mommy bleed - 10/10/07

Yes, my orally fixated son put a big piece of fuzz in his mouth the other day, and when I tried to fish it out, he bit me and drew blood. It was 7:27am, and I already had an injury! My day was looking good.

Perhaps, when I took him to his first Halloween party earlier this week, he should have been a vampire, instead of a ...

The sad thing is, I'm quite certain this won't be the only time the little devil will make me bleed. Who knew the expression "Blood, Sweat, & Tears" would be so literal?

P.S. My expert blogger buddy Julia explained the wonderful world of adding pictures and video to my blog, so look out world, here comes Dylan in all his glory! (Thanks Julia!)

He is sooo adorable! I love the Little Devil costume!

My kids have drawn blood and bruised me in more ways than I can count . . . thank goodness none of them have been bad enough that I am faced with having to explain to an emergency room physician why I am there.

Thanks! He has two other costumes, but thank goodness I had that one, since it was about 88degrees the day of the party!
Also, thanks for faithfully reading. I read yours, also.

What a great little costume! He's adorable!

When my daughter was about 15 months old my husband was tickling her on his lap and she threw her head forward laughing and hit his nose with her head. In the morning when both his eyes were black we realized she'd broken his nose!

The things we deal with when we have kids!

Thanks for the compliment. Those pictures your friend took of your kids are so great! She's either very talented or your kids are very photogenic - maybe both. I love pictures taken outdoors.

Julia, I'm posting the "Push It" video next, like you suggested. Thanks.
