Klingon Baby!

 Ambree dropped a Little People play set on Canon's face last Saturday.
 Pretty sure it was broken, but there is nothing to do for a broken nose.  So he got Otter pops and ibuprofen instead from his Nurse parents.  This is day three when most of the swelling had gone down.  Sunday he looked terrible--like a baby Klingon.
 At 17 months Canny Boy is finally walking.
He has been such a trooper this week.  Being the third child he seems to get pestered from both directions.  
I love this chubby boy!
