Actually, she's not very graceful at all.
We live really close to our church and so, weather permitting, we walk there every Sunday. Two weeks ago we were leaving church and Sydney ran smack into a parked van. She fell to the ground pretty hard. She stood up and said, "I okay." and continued walking. She had a little bump and some bruising, but she was okay. I tried really hard not to laugh at her, but it was a really funny scene. Who runs into a parked car at full speed?
Then today, as we left church, Sydney fell face first to the ground. She scraped her knees pretty badly. She cried this time and Donnie held her, but then she wanted to walk again. She chose to walk in the grass the rest of the way home. I guess she figured it was safer than the sidewalk.
When ever Sydney gets hurt she asks me to kiss it better, but something about kissing a bloody knee kind of grossed me out. I could only kiss close to it. We came home and Donnie cleaned her up and put a bandaid on her knee. She seemed more upset by the bandaid than the actual injury.
We are going to spend the next few weeks teaching her how to walk - or either crafting a bubble wrap suit for her outside adventures.
