Too Close For Comfort

On Wednesday, Grayson decided to take a tumble from his changing table. He went from a standing position, to tumbling downwards in a millisecond. I turned around just in time to see him sailing downward at a completely upside down vertical angle, landing on his head and neck. Time froze in that moment as I had visions of him breaking his neck. The landing was just awful....words can't describe what I saw in that moment. He thankfully began screaming immediately so I knew he was at least somewhat ok. I got to him just a second after he landed holding him close as he cried. Then that's when I started crying. No not crying, bawling. I just kept thinking about "what if" he would've landed just slightly different putting the weight on his neck wrong. I couldn't gain composure, so we loaded up in the car and headed to my mom's house (which was our destination for the morning anyway). He had stopped crying by this point and was totally fine. Mommy, however was not.

I walked into my parents house crying, unable to speak. Which freaked them out to say the least. I finally was able to tell them what happened, and they assured me he was fine...no need to worry. I cried pretty much for the next hour. Then for the next 3, tears kept popping into my eyes throughout the morning at work. Phew. A pregnant mommy cannot take all this emotion.

All I know is I don't ever want to feel that close to something horrible happening again. It was just awful. And, I must say, I do believe in angels helping out my little fella and keeping him from bigger harm.

Oh...best part is, on my way home with him that afternoon, we were stopped at a light. I turned around, and grabbed his foot, playing with him and smiling and telling him how much I love him and how glad I am he's ok. Um..but I didn't realize I was still rolling a little bit....brake not totally on. So, yep... I totally rear ended the car in front of me. Luckily it was just barely a tap and both cars were fine. Didn't even exchange insurance info. But still....like I really needed that on the same day?! So my luck.

I'm happy to report G-man is totally fine and fun and rotten as ever. We are busy planning and getting ready for the big "2" birthday party on Monday. More on that to come!
