Boy Will Be Boys...

We had a fun afternoon with our good friends Anne and Justin at the Brunswick Stew Festival today!
Nathan found some rocks to play with!
Ah... boys!

We were all looking forward to nap time once we got home. Nathan had other plans... he was walking quickly with his sippy cup and tripped over something and fell. His head hit the rim of the cup making a fairly deep gash through his left eyebrow. We got the bleeding under control and hopped in the car and headed straight to Kid Med. Nathan was such a trooper, while waiting to be called back to see the doctor, Nathan was running around the waiting room and trying to climb in chairs and hop out of them. I tried my best to get him to sit still, but he isn't a sit still kind of boy.

Nathan got 5 stitches and was super brave getting them! He only cried when they wrapped him up to keep him still and then again when they were injecting the numbing medicine. Once that took affect, he was calm and did great! He actually fell asleep in the 5 minutes it took to place all of the stitches! I love our brave Nathan! He gave the doctor a high five on the way out the door! I guess that was his way of saying, "Thank you!"

The doctor said that Nathan's eye will likely be swollen shut by tomorrow morning, which I can already see beginning to happen. Bless his heart. We will return in 7 days to have the stitches taken out... that should be fun. I know it wont hurt him, but I'm sure it's going to bring back terrible memories for little Nathan. But like getting them, he won't remember that either one day. :o) The next time Nathan wants to skip nap time I hope he chooses a little less exciting way!

Opening wide to put that binky in!

Still smiling!

All better!
