Our families came, the sun was shining and it was a warm January day. Easton was hilarious. It was quite clear that our pastor doesn't often baptize a toddler. Typically it is an infant or an older child. Easton was quite curious about his facial hair and his glasses.
The girls played upstairs and had a blast. Everyone got along and enjoyed the day. John went upstairs to check on everyone and they girls were doing "magic" tricks. They had Annelyn in two totes and were pretending to cut her in half.
Everyone headed home and Olivia and Easton were playing. John and I commented on how great of a day it had been and how nice it was to sit down and the two kids actually play together! Within a matter of seconds we were headed to the ER after that comment. Easton was running and fell into the coffee table. Not a corner or anything.....just the side. He must have hit a soft spot on his skull, because there wasn't anything that seemed worse than normal. He has had some hard falls! He is quite clumsy!! This time it produced blood filling a paper-towel, then a hand-towel, and when I went over look, he had blood streaming quickly down his neck. We loaded up and headed to the ER. The doctor thought that he was going to be able to use butterfly stitches until he cleaned it. He ended up needing staples. They asked us what we wanted to do.....numb it (stick him, upset him, and wait 30 min. for the numbing to take effect) or go "ninja style" and just do it quickly before he could know what happened. Ninja style it was....we knew once he was upset that he would fight them, so it was better just to get it over with.
Within 5 minutes it was over and he was enjoying a cherry popcicle.
Within an hour the two kiddos were back home playing and laughing. Yep, the picture below is after 3 staples. He is one tough little guy!
