{Ry's Scary Nose}

Ry tripped in the driveway on Saturday and scraped the tip of his nose.  After a little blood and tears, he seemed fine.  Trev put him down for a nap, and I was off for the day to a bridal shower 2 hours away.  Trev knows me all too well...so when he called and said "you are going to freak over Ry's nose!"....I was worried!  I hate facial injuries!  Carson had a tiny scab on the day of his baptism that I had to photoshop out of every single picture! 

So when I got home ...yeah, the swelling or whatever had spread around his entire nose!  And, of course, it was his first day of nursery yesterday!  I mean, you can't help but look at him and think "what the heck happened??"...and about 173 people asked about it too.  I would have asked too if it was another baby!  He was feeling great though...he had no idea why people were 'ooohing' and sympathizing with him. 

He loved nursery.  While I was peeking through the door, the leaders had just set a dixie cup of water in front of him at snack time.  Whoops! I forgot about this .... he NEVER uses a regular cup.  So I just watched as he just stared at it...picked it up...attempted to drink from the back side of the cup...looked at it again...and then just thought..."hey, I am going to dump this right in my lap"...and he did.  He loved our fantastic nursery leaders and Trev and I (okay, mostly Trev) can enjoy our meetings without a restless baby.  But actually, Trev is sad about the whole thing...missing his little Sunday school companion.....he loves our little Ry and doesn't want him to grow up...me either!

And then after church I was worried about his little shnaz....so Trev took him to the convenience care clinic and the doctor confirmed he definitely had an infection, and we needed to find a 24 hour pharmacy to get a topical antibiotic pronto.  He'll start on an oral one if it doesn't start looking better in a few days.  Poor guy! 

At least we don't have any vacations, family pictures, or other photo ops coming up!  Here he is all gooped up with ointment....And, he is still darling.

Poor little guy! He really is still adorable though :) Hope he heals up quick.

Kali wore a helmet for a few months (for a flat spot on her head when she was 9mths). Now she wears an eye patch for 5 hours every day (everyone assumes she has a bad eye injury). So I definitely know what its like getting all of the unwanted attention. It bothered me at first, but I don't even notice it anymore. Kids!

Ouch! Wow that looks painful! But somehow he is still so cute! Hope it gets better soon.

What a sad little nose. I love his little smile though. Isn't it amazing how kids can be perfectly happy, when us adult would be miserable.
You have an adorable family.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
