Tumble

Milla fell down a flight of stairs yesterday. It was at least 6, maybe 8 steps. Totally scary. We were at a friend's house and I saw her shut the baby gate but apparently she'd opened it and I didn't think to look again and I just ASSUMED the gate was still closed. I heard this THUD THUD THUD but never even thought it could be Milla. She seems fine! I am completely overwhelmed that an almost-one-year-old baby can fall down the stairs and still be OK. Really. She's got a couple red marks on her face but that's it. And yes, I called the pediatrician and UNC Health Link and talked to all sorts of nurses and everyone seems to think she must be OK. Evolution is remarkable! And so is mother nature. Same thing, OK ...
