Black Eyed Peas *Edited*

Have you ever had a black eye?
I don't think I have.
I can't even say that this is Wyatt's first black eye...I think it's his 2nd.
Bright and early yesterday morning, I was in the kitchen pouring my coffee. Wyatt was in the living room watching Veggie Tales, and all of a sudden I heard a major crash. He was screaming, which means that he really got hurt. He normally just pops right back up and starts playing again.
I still don't know what happened, but I think he fell off his chair and hit the wooden rocking chair going down. It was instantly black and blacker in the middle. This picture was taken at 8:16am(6/4/08). By the way...have you ever tried to take a picture of a 2 1/2 year old's eye? Not easy.

Please disregard my failure to wipe off the morning oatmeal before I took this picture.
Please also disregard that I took this picture at 12:12pm and he still has morning oatmeal on his face.
But, instead, take notice of the shade of purple that this shiner is.
Everytime I see him in the corner of my eye, I think he has eyeshadow on.

The bruise moved this morning from the side of his face to over the eye and under the eye.
To me he looks like he got hit square in the eye with a baseball.

But...all in all...he is still my little sunshine boy!
How could I not love this little goof ball.

It looks like a deeper purple to me today.
Sorry, I know I keep talking about this eye.
But seriously, it's fascinating to me how much this thing keeps changing.

Watch out if he ever gets a brother. My boys have given each other a couple black eyes. :)

I loved the pictures in your last post but I don't think I commented on them. They're cute!

I'm glad it wasn't worse. Poor baby!

I can't remember having a black eye but my sister fell on the sidewalk when was a little girl and I think she hit her nose and wow!! she had the classic black eyes, it was amazing!
