Alena had her first real injury yesterday and under my watch too (Nae wants to make sure that's known). We were doing some work at our church and she pulled a heavy wooden rocking toy over. Thankfully, it didn't hit her, but somehow during the fall she managed to bite a huge gash out of her tongue and leave teeth marks on her chin as well. She's been a real trooper, though and it could have been much worse. Her poor little mouth - not only does she have a sore tongue, but she's also gotten three molars in this week (and has the runny nose and cough to go along with it. ) You can see in the pictures that all of this mouth trauma has brought with it lots of drool - I changed her clothes 3 times today just because they were soaking wet! but at least she still has her cute little smile. I hope that never goes away!
