look what malcolm gave me...

...a big ol' black eye, ouch! but it was totally unintentional. on saturday, he was sitting in my lap, and he threw his head back and it smashed me in the eye. like right on the brow bone. it hurt, and i kind of saw stars. on sunday this is what it looked like:

it started off a little grey, then started to get darker and kind of reddish. and as of today it is yellow. eeeww. i hope people don't think danny gave it to me, haha.

this was last night. terrible photo, i know.

malcolm is also getting over a few bruises of his own on his forehead. he's been climbing a lot and getting into everything, and he is still pretty clumsy, so he had a few falls last week. you can see his little yellow bruises here:

he can now climb up onto our bed without any help

he was playing with lucky dog. lucky was giving him kisses, and i tried to catch one in a photo, but this is as close as i could get.

today we went to michaels craft store, to look for a gift for one of alanna's friends. i was also looking for some things to finish up malcolm's baby book. i love all the scrapbooking stuff they have in there! i can totally understand how people get addicted to that hobby. there are so many cute designs. cute paper. cute stickers. it's crazy. there is another store out here called "archiver's", which is loaded with cute scrapbooking stuff too. i would love to start doing it, but it would be a bit too time consuming... not to mention expensive! maybe someday, when i win the lottery. or after the kids are out of the house. ha.

we found a display of funny hats. malcolm liked to look at them, but he wasn't very excited when we put them on him.

and one last thing. i booked our hotel room for our october trip to disneyland. i got a good rate at a hotel that is directly across the street from the main entrance to the parks! pretty stoked about the idea of not having to walk very far to get to our room. this will be perfect for naps, and snacks, and a swim when it gets too hot out. my mom is deciding whether she wants to go again or not. we had a lot of fun with her last year, so let's keep our fingers crossed that she'll come. and i think kate and jason are planning on joining us for the weekend again too. yay! see you soon jeanie and demetri!!

disneyland, october 2008


  1. Shame...OW!!!
    I know the feeling, Raine was about a year and he decided to laugh, and his head rammed my nose, I had TWO sultry looking eye's...& people sure come up with some stories...LOL!

  2. dood it looks like you and malcolm come in a fist fight

  3. Ouch! That's one tough little man!

    And we will be at D-Land for sure this year. Yay!!

  4. Yay! I can't wait to see you guys! We have passes now, so we can get Malcolm and Demetri on some rides together! :)

    I'm starting to think only boys beat up their mothers... ha ha. LOL.

  5. I cant' figure out this comment thing sometimes, ...

    um anyway, I'm way excited to see you guys!!! It should be way fun now that Demetri and Malcolm are mobile. :)Demetri loves the mickey mouse clubhouse in CA Adventures. I bet Malcolm will too! I can't wait to see them together again!

  6. yay kate! and yeah jeanie, i can't wait either. even if they don't like to play with each other, it will be cute to see them interact. malcolm has always loved mickey mouse, he gets so excited when he see's his image anywhere. i'm sure he will love the clubhouse! oh, do your passes have blackout dates? or can you go on any day?
