It's hard to look mean and nasty, even with a black eye, when you are standing in a pack-and-play decorated with cartoon animals
It's more accurate just to call her 'Tumble Nieve" but given that she's starting to toughen up we'll give her the 'rough' as a consolation. The other night Nieve excitedly jumped head-first onto a bean bag, not noticing the solid teak coffee table behind it. A loud 'whump' and some even louder cries indicated that she had hit that unnoticed table.
Nieve's 'I'm in timeout' face... only this time sporting a bruise
A few minutes later a large lump and some bruising was evident on her left eye. Thankfully the initial swelling went down after some ice and hugs from Mom, leaving only a mean-looking shiner in it's place. The photos in this post were taken a few days after the impact when most of the bruise had been reabsorbed.
"Whatchu lookin' at?"
