Oh Nose!!

Jared and I were downstairs on Saturday, when we heard a big CRASH and Maiya crying upstairs.

We went up, and discovered that Maiya had been playing under one of the kitchen stools, and had managed to topple it over her. She had blood coming out of her nose and mouth, and she had two very frightened parents!

I ran down the street, and found our "neighborhood doctor" who JUST moved here from Colby, Kansas, playing at the park with his family. He came over, took a look at her, and assured us that she was okay. It's probably not a broken nose (and even if it is, doctors just let it heal on its own at this young age), but it should look really pretty for the next week or two! Maiya is so tough, and hasn't complained about her nose hurting, at all. In fact, when asking her what hurts, she would just say "my lip!"

Photo #1 is just after the accident. Photo #2 the next day, and Photo #3 on Day 3 (last night).

It's amazing what trouble toddlers can get themselves into. But, that looks painful- poor girl. That's bad. I hope it heals soon!
