Rough and Tumble Nieve

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?"

Go get her some new shoes, that'll fix her right up!

Awww, poor little thing - even her hair looks sad :-( I agree with CalBadger - new shoes will put a smile on any girl's face.

PS - Did that fall change her eye color? Her eyes were blue in April - are they really hazel now? very pretty, if a bit sad at the moment.

Nieve's eyes are hazel (at the moment)... the were never as blue as Ronan's. Agreed about the new shoes... Mom will log onto Zappos this evening to see what she can find. :-)

re shoes: Something pink or purple by all means (goes with hazel eyes)

Thanks Nana - you should take her shopping when we are in SD - poor Nieve is depraved of all things fashion!

Did you mean deprived? (not depraved) hmmm
Sure, I can take Nievie shoe shopping, but the real fashion expert is Auntie Melissa - who will be in Italy shopping for all those fine Italian shoes! Guess we'll settle for Target.
