The Beauty of Skinned Knees

We were out exloring a new park the other day when Isaiah ~ not looking where he was going, again ~ stumbled over a huge rock. J swooped in for the save, albeit too little, too late. Bam! Zay went down to his knees. It didn't look bad right away. But the way he was carrying on, you would thought he had been severed at the waist. Daddy was cleaning the debris off of Zay's legs when I noticed the blood. And that's when it hit me: my son was walking, tripped, and skinned his knees. Just like a typical 6 year-old boy.

Just like a typical 6 year-old boy.

One year ago, at 5 years-old, Isaiah started walking. For real walking. No walker, walls, passing by legs, therapists, or furniture to hold onto.

By 2011, Usain Bolt will have nothin' on Zay.

That is just awesome. I can't believe how fast he was going.

I love how you are asking him the same thing in both videos!

Thanks, ladies! The sound of my own voice is like nails on the chalkboard to me, though. Grrr!

And Johnna--thank you so, so much. We miss you and Larry more than you could imagine.
