Of aunt bites and such...

Life with my little prince can be so interesting! He's in the phase where his curiosity is just unbelievable.
He investigates every noise, every sounds, e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g..
He falls at least once a day...on these hard concrete floors...it's really a wonder he's not all broken ;)

This week he learned that ants bite...

And hard!

He was playing out in the yard and when we heard him whimper and start crying, we found he was covered 
in fire ants! Poor kid! Those ants sure sting like crazy.

I counted over 80 bites on his body. The ants attacked his hands the worse. They were very swollen the first day, and he ran a fever that night :(

The pictures are of the 3rd day...I wish I'd thought to get a picture on the first day...it looked much worse that it looks on these pictures.

I didn't snap some of the inside of his hands, but they are all chewed up too.
I guess he learned his lesson of never to play close to an ant hill!

Yesterday he saw some ants and he immediately stopped and said: "hot", "hot", "hot" ...and proceeded to say; "no, no, hot!!!"

He's a smart little guy :)

Poor little baby! Sounds like he learned to stay away from those mean ole ants. It's so hard to see our children get hurt. The funny thing is, they soon forget...but mommy doesn't!
