Mother's Instinct

Today one of my big fears came true, I fell down the stairs while carrying LP. I'm still not even sure what happened, but somehow my mommy instincts kicked in and LP managed to ride safely down on my stomach as I slid to the bottom of the stairs. She was a little scared but not hurt at all. My left side is sore and I'm sure will be some pretty colors tomorrow, but at least now I know that I was able to protect my baby no matter what. I fell once on the ice outside when she was only about 3 months old and was able to tuck her in so she didn't even know anything had happened. I've been so scared about the stairs especially as she has gotten bigger. But the important thing is she is ok.

Wow!! You have good quick instincts. I'm so glad you're alright. And that PP is not hurt! Was PP's daddy home? I bet she was upset to see you go down like that. I had an aweful fall all the way down our stairs (before the runner) when Buby was about 3 months old. I had JUST put him down to bed. I still think, all the time, what if I was holding him. Then about a month later, I tripped and flew off our front porch about 6 feet on the cement. Again, I had JUST set him down. Now that he's 40 lbs and I'm pregnant, I make him walk the majority of the time. I don't want to push my luck.

Oh my goodness! Way to go with your quick reflexes in making sure she was okay. Hope the bruises aren't too bad tomorrow.

I'm glad to hear you are both okay. I'm sure you will have some awful bruising. Glad your instincts kicked in.
