Maggie's First Goose Egg

I'm not talking turkey, I'm talking giant welt on the forehead. Friday night, about 10:30 as we were finishing the move to the apartment, I hear crying in Maggie's new room. Serious crying. I run in, and there she is with her hand on her head, hiding a huge pink and purple welt on her forehead. It was late and we hadn't put her bed together, so she was just going to sleep on her mattress on the floor, and we put it by the window. She had run into her room to slide on her bed to get Lambie, and whacked her noggin a good one on the sill. We put an ice pack on it and gave her some Tylenol, and she was ready at that point to go to bed, moving wasn't fun anymore. Thanks, Jen, for helping me not freak out.

The next morning it had swollen up about 1/2 inch tall, 3 inches top to bottom, and 2 - 2 1/2 inches from side to side, and it actually was an egg shape with the wide part up at the top and the narrow part going down to about the bridge of her nose. This is the next morning. She would not hold still for a good shot (she was distracted by the empty house - we finished cleaning early Saturday morning).And tonight with some real attractive green/brown bruising that goes all the way down between the sides of her nose and her eyes on both sides. You can still see some of the swelling.
Is she her mother's daughter or what! Look at her ham it up for the camera!!!
