Another First

Last Friday, as I was doing laundry, while Grace followed me in to "help." With perfect precision, she stepped on the dirty clothes pile just as I was pulling a few items up to put them in the wash. She fell hard. This is not unusual with my 13 month old. She falls and tips and climbs all of the time. Of course, her head came down and hit the window sill. Ouch. I pulled her up quickly to comfort her and saw a big gash on her forehead. Although it wasn't bleeding much, I (surprisingly) knew it was gonig to need stitches and quickly loaded up the girls for a trip to Urgent Care. Of course, I was quite paniced as I was calling Conrad and trying to convey to him that he needed to meet us at Urgent Care!!

Needless to say, it was a rough evening of holding down my baby while they put 7 stitches in!! One on the inside and six on the outside. Poor little thing. But as usual, as soon as it was over, she was happy and smiley. In spite of the doctor's repeated warnings that she might have a scare, it's almost completely healed, in just 10 days!

Poor Grace! And Mommy too! That is sooo scary. Sienna got her first set of stiches around 2 yrs and Sierra never got stiches until just this past summer. But Levi, he got them the day after we came home from the hospital! But little Grace looks absolutely beautiful even with her stiches!! :)

My poor baby Gracie. She is such a sweetie. It was great to be with everyone for Thanksgiving. We love you all.
