A New Look for Christmas....

Thursday night before Christmas, Owen had a little accident that landed us in the ER!  He was ruff housing with daddy and hit his head.  Apparently he ran and dove for Josh, but missed and hit the foot peg of his Razorback Rocking horse instead!

We knew immediately that it was going to require a trip to the ER!  It was just over a year ago when we were at the same ER for his other eye... but he ended up with stitches instead of glue this time!

The stitches weren't too bad, but the shots of local anesthetic were terrible.  It took 3 of us to hold him down while the doctor stitched him up.  Luckily we were in and out of the ER in less than 45 minutes and headed home for an Ice Cream Sandwich!  It broke our hearts to see him like that, so he could have requested anything at that point and would probably have gotten it!

They put a bandage over it that night but said we could remove it the next day.  Owen was ready to get the bandaid off first thing the next morning, but was not as excited about me cleaning it and applying medicine.  

This was just 3 days before Christmas, so we'll have a ton a pictures to document his first stitches!
