Last Sunday Ellie was running down the sidewalk and tripped. This is nothing unusual for our active little girl, who often runs like the wind (usually away from us when we're trying to get her to cooperate...). But this time Ellie forgot to catch herself. In fact, she specifically put her arms behind her as she fell and absorbed the impact with her nose and mouth. There was a lot of blood and tears, and at first we thought she'd knocked a tooth loose. Luckily (?) she had only erased a bunch of skin from her nose and bitten the inside of her upper lip. The fat lip was better by the next day, but we're still working on healing up that nose. As you can see from the picture, though, she's no worse for the wear in spirit!
