some tidbits

when ben came into the boys room this morning, he found kadin swamped with toys and books in his crib. joel had thrown them all in so kadin would have something to play with until ben came and got him out. very sweet of joel, but kadin didn't enjoy it very much, as you can see by his unsuccessful plight to exit the crib. on saturday when joel was supposed to be taking his nap, he climbed out of his pack-n-play and knocked the dresser on top of himself. he must have pulled the drawers out and tried to climb up the side of the dresser. ben and i heard a huge crash and then a bloodcurdling scream. we ran into the room and joel was standing to the side of the dresser, which was toppled over and leaning against the edge of our bed, and joel was crying his eyes out. he got a pretty wicked goose egg on his forehead and a huge scratch down his face. luckily, it missed his eye and it wasn't very deep, so he didn't need any stiches and it didn't even bleed that much. mostly, it just scared him to death. i don't think he'll do that again. :) doesn't he look awesome, though. :) i swear, it's one thing after the next with my boys. they always have some sort of scrape or wound. i guess that's the life of a boy, though.

Super cute! For a while Drake had a good scratch on his face, and we thought it made him look so tuff! I love little boys!

if you don't stop beating your children i'm going to call child services and have them give them to me! ;) (whatever it takes... whatever it takes)

seriously... how scary to have a huge dresser fall on top of you!? that would be like having that big bookcase in your living room coming falling on top of you. of course, you'd have to have tried to climb it first... which is the reason kids have stupid things happen to them. :)

I'm still laughing about the picture of Kadin in his crib. Not that I enjoy seeing him cry, but I can just imagine Joel meticulously throwing in one book after another in his little focused Joel way and Kadin not being able to do a thing!!

That scratch picture will make a good story later. Shoot, it’s a heck of a story now!

I love it...I love it all!! Can't wait til I have exciting stories to tell about how my little boy cheats death!

Oh my goodness! Boys are so different than girls! What will I do when I get a boy??? It will be such a shock. Poor little guy :( That owie looks so sad and painful. But like Kristin said....I guess he looks tuff now huh? ha.

Man this was a bad week for freak accidents (see the "thank heaven for heaven" post on our friends The Bakers blog...)And that scrape looks wicked. You should dress him up like Rambo or something so his injury looks macho :) At least that's what Troy would do, he loves injuries with bragging rights. Maybe we should take Joel with us rock climbing sometime! :)
