Mini Milestone: First Owie

Spencer has been walking for about 3 months now and is getting close to mastering the art of running, but he still falls. A lot. The other day, during the random November heat wave, Spencer was playing on the patio while wearing shorts. Which has only happened a couple of times since he has been running. Normally, he is in pants and also we had the patio off-limits until we emptied the murky water from the fountain because he loved to dip his watering can in the fountain and dump it everywhere and also drink the odd colored water. We thought that perhaps avoiding cholera was a good idea.

Needless to say, he tripped and skidded across the concrete and has his first decent owie to show for it. Not that he hasn’t had scrapes and the occasional head lump, but this is his first skinned knee, which I think of as kind of a generic owie.


This is what happened with the fountain water:

    Ouch! I’m so rough and tumble, I ALWAYS have some sort of scrape or lump or bruise… Did he get a cool band-aid? I love those!

    I think you are right, Cole. I am going to have to get some fun band-aids. I haven’t needed them yet.

    Evan has never ever even once skinned a knee or an elbow. He sticks exclusively to head injuries. MANY MANY head injuries.
