So the other day I had J on top step leading into our house and he ended up tripping on the mat that is kept outside. His face met with the doorway and ended up getting multiple cuts on his lip. It was the first time we experienced a (minor) bloody lip. He had a fat lip for most of the day. He wasn't too happy about the ice I had for his lip but he let me put it on him from time to time.
It's been a few days and his lip is starting to look normal again. We ventured out into the yard and while he was playing on his slide, he learned he could climb the rock wall leading up to the top of the slide. He was SO proud of himself he was glowing, or maybe that was due to the brisk air. Either way, he couldn't get enough of playing in the back yard and running on the winterized grass.
His lip looks a little better here
