busted up






Yep, it has finally happened. Charlie busted his chin open last night and I had to take him in to get stitches. I was out running errands when Dan called to tell me I'd better come home to take Charlie into the ER. Apparently he had been balancing on a baby swing and when it swung one way he hit his chin on the hardwood floor. It was split open pretty wide. My friend Krissie came over (she's a nurse) and said we'd better take him in. After longer than 4 hours in the ER he came home with 10 stitches. He's the first of the boys with any stitches.

It's just the beginning :) You know Carl's mom had 6 boys and she didn't even flinch if the boys had to get stitches. Austin busted open his chin when he was about that age.

Ouch. Noah had stitches in his chin when he was 2 or 3, but only like 3 stitches... that's it for this household so far...
