The First One

(click on pics for close-ups)

Last Thursday night, as usual, the kids were playing before bedtime, and getting a little crazy, when Joseph took a flying leap into the fireplace hearth. Luckily, the hearth has rounded edges or we probably would have been making a trip to the ER for stitches. As it was, he was left with a nice shiner. Here he is, a bit more subdued, being comforted by his new friend, Froggy, and his sisters: Don't you love those sleepers with the feet in them?

The next morning he was all smiles despite the nice swelling and discoloration (he looks better than Catherine back there!):
On Sunday, we all "watched" the Superbowl. The TV even got carried upstairs for the occasion. There were snacks galore and as much chaos at our house as at the stadium. I guess Joseph was rooting for the Cardinals. This is what he thought of those Steelers:
No Superbowl halftime watching for us. We've got some books to read!
One more closeup of that eye. Boy, Joseph, you look like you've been in a fight! Or playing some football.

And yeah, this is probably the first of many.
