So there have been many requests for the story of how Kate got her purple arm. So here it is... we don't know. I wish we had a story to tell, but unfortunately we don't. Kate is a tough girl and did not show many signs of it being injured. There was no big fall or ear shrieking scream. Around the time of the mysterious incident, Kate had been practicing her walking skills and wasn't crawling quite as often. She would play with her toys and pull herself up to stand as if nothing was wrong, but on the rare occasion that she would crawl we noticed that she was using her right forearm instead of her right hand. We of course thought that was odd, but just continued to watch it. We started noticing that when put into her car seat Kate would make a face and sometimes a small groan when pulling her right arm through the straps. Finally, as Kate started crying when she had the smallest of falls, that would normally be no big deal, we made an appointment to see the doctor and sure enough BROKEN! We felt horrible that we let it go so long. We thought it was a strain at most because of how normal she was acting. I guess we just have a tough kid. The cast has not been holding Kate back though. She is just as active , if not more, as she was before. This girl loves to run around. Kate gets to keep this darling souvenir (that is starting to smell like foot) for another week and a half and then she will be able to enjoy bath time once again. We cannot wait.
