Johnny has reached an important milestone. He has his first black eye. He was pulling up on a chair and missed his hand grip. He hit his cheek bone and forehead on the chair leg. Luckily I was already running into the pediatrician for a suspected ear infection so we just had him look at it while were there (affirmative for double ear infections, too). His brother spent about 9 months with an almost constant shiner. There is a distinct hole in our photos from that era because I kept thinking that each one was the last one. Not this time. The bruises don't show very well in the photos yet, but I'll keep taking them either way.
