An Evening in the ER

Just after I started getting dinner ready Sammy fell and bumped his head on the bookshelf. Nothing new, but he hit the sharp corner in just the right spot. After panicking for a moment I called Zan and told him we were headed to the hospital. I could tell it would need stitches. He was such a good boy though. He didn't cry very much and didn't seem to notice the cut on his head.

We were only there about 1 1/2 hours. He didn't like being held down to get the stitches, but other than that he was just fine and doesn't seem to notice. He needed 6 stitches. Of course I had scheduled his 1 year photos next week. I think I'll reschedule them. He is now sleeping peacefully in his crib.

In other news, I brought in Ella's little horse for Sam to rock on. He really likes it. Ella has been doing a lot of coloring/drawing lately too. I think she really enjoys it at school. I took a picture of a picture she made for me. The orange person in the lower left hand corner is Grandpa. Grandma is next to him in pink. Nana is in yellow and I'm next to her in the right corner in blue. Sammy (the little guy) is above me in black. Zan in in blue on the top and Ella is to the left top in orange. She even signed her own name. We were both very impressed. She has drawn pictures for Grandma and Grandpa and Jill too. We'll have to get them delivered soon.

Hopefully we can have a laid back weekend here.

Oh no!!! I'm glad he's doing good though!

And my opinion? I totally would ~not~ reschedule the pictures. The ones with stories behind them always are the cool ones.

Oh poor Sammy 6 stitches(with his stitches he is now in the "little boy club" and he didn't cry much.). He looks so cute with his big eyes, but his forehead looks like it should hurts. I think that is with out a doubt a hurt that moms,dads,grandmas,and grandpas feel. Tell Ella grandma and grandpa loved her picture with everyone and we are anxious for ours.

I forgot to add favorite aunts also feel those hurts.

Oh my gosh...Sammy's owie looks awful. I agree with Nancy...I think you should take his pictures with the owie. It is a story. Then take one when it is all healed. I can't wait to get my picture from Ella. I still have the very first one she sent me. It's prominently display in the middle of the fridge. Sammy looks like a little man with his hair cut. Any b'day celebrations being planned?
We love you all.
