Our family is growing in many ways... Growing in numbers, knowledge, parenting skills, growing in love, in our faith, growing our culinary skills (if you can call it that), growing without gluten (some of us), growing green...........

Aiden's First Boo-Boo

I forgot to mention another big deal from our Monday "off"....

Aiden got his first boo-boo. He fell forward, which he does not do often these days, while reaching to get a toy. He hit his nose and screamed his head off!

The bad part was neither Mom nor Dad saw it. I was sitting less than two feet away, but I was looking in the other direction at the moment it happened. Talk about bad timing... So, we both spent a great amount of time looking all over to see where any bump/scratch/bruise could be on his face to be sure we knew where he hit. We finally found a mark under his nose, which made me feel much better b/c I knew he didn't get really hurt (not compared to a bump on the head/eye/mouth, at least). We were both really worried for a while b/c he screamed and screamed. But it was his first time getting hurt, so...that's understandable. The poor guy is learning that the world isn't always fun and good-feeling. :(

Here's a picture of the nose, a day later. It actually looks worse today than it did yesterday.

Ryan is still a bit upset about the whole ordeal. I reminded him, this is the first of many!
