first visit to the ER

we lasted 4 years and 5 months with no visits to ER... i think that's pretty good considering we have 2 high-energy little dudes. anyway, kadin and joel were racing each other through the house and kadin ran smack into the corner of the wall and split his head open. rad. five stitches and doing just fine.

and check out this little chunk. 7 weeks old and weighing in at just under 14 pounds. we make some seriously solid babies... :)

not bad. i hope we can make it at LEAST that long without any ER visits. poor little guy though.

ok, i heart that little chunk. he is so precious. i want to kiss his cheeks and cuddle with him. he looks like sayer to me while he is sleeping. but man, those blue eyes are really somethin'. it makes him look so different from his brothers! can't wait to meet him... probably when he is like 7 months old. :(

Kadin will wow all the girls with that scar one day. I can't wait.

He has a lot of Whitney in him. Did you get to meet a Child Life Specialist by any chance?

That really IS an accomplishment to have gone that long without going to the ER! We should know... 3 visits in 2008 alone.

p.s. Your little chunk is so dang cute and growing so dang fast!

Man! Where do you sign up for those chunky babies?! I am like the only woman I know right now who must naturally produce skim or soy milk because my kids will NOT fatten up! Angie's baby is a little older than Oliver and weighs about 15 lbs too! And guess what? Gavin is 1 yr old and weighs 14.5 :) he has the skinniest old man legs I've ever seen on a kid ;)

love those eyes! he looks so sad - an actor he might be! glad it was no TOOO serious, but trips to the ER are never fun. hope he has a great story to go with the scar in years to come (or better yet, hope he does not have a scar!)

Oh man, that is some sort of record. I'm totally dreading my first trip there, I know it's coming! You make solid babies like I do! That's my kind of baby, I prefer them that way :)

Thats awesome that you went so long without going to ER. Poor little guy, hes so adorable though!

I cant believe Oliver was 14 lbs at 7 weeks. Marlee is 10 months and weighs 16 11.

I can't believe you have THREE BOYS. And I love the name Oliver. 14 pounds? That is impressive. I think Lucy tipped the scales at 14 pounds when she was about 10 months old.
