A Year Ago Today

I am loving this meme that I found.  It is so fun looking back at my babies when they were so small.  So what happened 1 year ago today? 

1 year ago today I accidentally gave Emmy a black eye.  I know, your thinking, how do you accidentally give your kid a black eye.  I would think that too.  Well, the story goes like this:

Emily was on her first attempt at being potty trained.  She was doing great, sitting on the toilet many times throughout the day, but she loved to read books as she sat there (according to the potty training guru that eventually helped me train Em, that's a BAD thing).  She would always sit there and go through a big stack of books, one by one.  So on this particular day, I grabbed her a book and out came another one "Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What do you see" to be exact, and since she was looking up at the time, it hit her right in the eye leaving a bruise and a cut in the shape of the book corner.  It was so sad, she was screaming and crying, I couldn't make it better for a while.  After that, books left the bathroom and she gave up her attempt at potty training for a while. 

My little boy was only 7 weeks at that point, and getting so fat.  He was so adorable! 

That is what happened 1 year ago today!
