We have experienced a lot of firsts in the last 9 months. First smile, first laugh, first time crawling, first step. One first that I am not so crazy about is O’s first black eye. Why is it that kids seem to fall on corners, eye first. I made an attempt to ice the boo boo to keep the swelling down. A piece of ice in a washcloth is not something a 9 month old will tolerate for very long apparently. After some research I saw that there are lots of cute ice packs out there and I am hoping that it could make it more of a game. I especially like the ones that look like little creatures and they are super easy to make yourself. These little guys are iPod cozies, but with a little rice or dried beans sewn inside I think they would make the perfect boo boo monster! via
