Miles Gets An Owie

Well, you'd think he'd give us a little more time in between medical issues, but alas...

Do you see the blood? On his teeth? His sweet face all scraped up?

Poor thing... Josh, I mean. He really has a hard time with the kids getting hurt. Miles is all boy and gets into way more stuff than Kate ever did, so it's only natural that we begin to see more blood around here.

He was trying to get on her trike when the whole thing just tipped over and instead of bracing himself against the wall, he just slid down it - on his face.

Thankfully, no teeth were harmed in the incident, but he did get a good strawberry and severed that little piece of skin that attaches your upper lip to your gum. Apparently, this does not need any sort of medical attention and will heal on it's own. "Heal on it's own" also means that it won't re-attach itself, but will just dangle there for eternity. If you would like to see a grown-up version, please contact Jen.

Ok, kid...bring it on.

How is it possible for him to make such a sweet face when it's so banged up? What a great picture!

Miles, don't worry, only the REALLY cool kids get to have dangly lip flaps...

Poor Josh, I can just imagine the heart attack he must have been having. Hope he can hold down the fort for a couple of days.
Miles still has his cute little face even with blood and cuts. I think it looks cool...

Now, what's all this about having a permanent "flappy thing"? And Jen has one too? Are we going to a Christian Science church and I didn't know it?

Have fun in Iowa! Say HI to the crew from us! Hopefully Miles won't have any traumatic injuries while you're gone. Just be sure to pad the backyard and every other sharp corner in your house. :)
