JJ's First Owie

Well, he's had minor hurts before but this is the first of the serious injuries. I guess this isn't very serious either but it's worse than minor...Anywho, JJ's finger was shut in the door for the first time yesterday. After church on Sunday nights a bunch of us stay for dinner and to play basketball, volleyball, or horseshoes. We were almost done for the night when it happened. JJ's finger was shut in the door. He didn't cry right away so I didn't notice right away. Once I saw what was happening I rushed over to get his fingers out of the door. Of course the damage had been done (bruise and small cut) and there wasn't much I could do other than love on him. I think I gave him more kisses in those few minutes than I have in the last week! ha! It is so heartbreaking when your baby is hurting and there's nothing you can do about it. Now I know understand how my Dad felt every time he told me that he would take the hurt for me if he could. I would have taken JJ's hurt in a heartbeat.

I tried taking a picture of his finger but it's not easy getting a 16 month old to sit still long enough to get a good picture. Here's what I ended up with...



This one shows the little cut and the bruise on the tip of his finger.

Nothing hurts more than knowing that you can't take away the pain from someone you love...poor kiddo!

Sarah - that is so true! That is one part of being a mommy that is no fun.
