Yesterday, Emma and I went for a walk with the baby, the stroller and the dog. We got about four houses down when Emma biffed it and skinned both her knees for the first time. She immediately started screaming hysterically and I scooped her up and tried to calm her down. She was in a panic and I kept tried to give her knees kisses and let her know that I knew that she was hurt. My soothing wasn't working and Emma finally calmed down enough to say "baby". I realized that she could care less about her knees but was staring down at her baby who had, to Emma's horror, flipped upside down in her stroller and hit her head on the sidewalk. I put Emma down, put the baby back in the stroller and Emma calmed right down. She looked at me, pointed to her head and said "baby baboo" and kissed her baby on the head. She then smiled and continued on her walk.
