He's Such a Boy!

Lately, Scott and I just look at each other, roll our eyes, and exclaim, "He's such a boy!," after Cooper does something that his sister never did or would ever do, like climb up on his bouncy chair backwards and make it bounce so hard that we have to hold it down or he would go flying into the air. He'll take things from Kylie and run off with them as fast as his little legs can go. He'll pull everything he can reach down off of shelves, pull out every toy he can find out of its proper place, and generally, he'll leave huge messes in his wake.
Lately, he likes finding things he can put around his neck like necklaces, purses, and anything he can find that would be cool to put around his neck. Well, one day, he decided to follow Mommy upstairs. On the way up, he found the diaper bag and decided it would be a fun thing to put around his neck. He found out, however, that it was really hard to climb up the stairs with the diaper bag hanging down by his knees. So, he stood up on the stair and was trying to get the diaper bag strap off of his neck when he FELL all the way down the stairs and ended up with this:
We don't know what really happened, because I was upstairs and Scott was on the computer downstairs, but Scott said when he got to him, he still had the diaper bag strap around his neck. So, we can pretty much assume that this is what happened. We really can't figure out what he hit on the way down that would give him such a nasty bump, but we also have to remember that he got the same nasty bump in the exact same place three weeks ago after he bumped his head on the coffee table. *Sigh* Boys will be boys, I guess.
The only good thing that came out of this is he FINALLY went down for his nap after screaming and crying for a good 10 minutes. I'm pretty sure he had a headache; he just needed to sleep it off...Poor kid.
