Oh, what a week!

This last week has certainly been eventful!! This may be old news to those of you who hang with me on Facebook or at CMK, but on Thursday, Noah and Chloe were chasing each other around on our first floor when Noah slipped on the playdough mat that was on the floor. He fell down, crashing the back of his head into the edge of our wall. He started screaming in pain, and when Tony and I further investigated, his head was gushing blood, and he had a huge gash! We threw the kids in the car and rushed to the ER. Due to the location on his head, they couldn't stitch it, so my poor guy had to get 7 staples! :-( It was such a horrible experience watching him go through that. Today, he was scheduled to go to our pediatrician to get them out and, let's just say it didn't go well! He started freaking out as soon as our dr. tried to take them out, so the doc had to get two nurses to help hold him down. After getting 2 staples out, the blood started gushing again, and he told me that it wasn't healed yet and needed more time! Sooo, we have to go back in a week.

On top of that, Chloe came down sick on Sunday. She definitely seems to be a lot better today, but she still had some periods of lethargy and crankiness. Hopefully the sickness and drama will be on their way out! Especially since we have a busy Saturday coming up - the kids are getting portraits taken that morning with my parents and their cousins, and that night we have a big St. Patty's day bash with our neighbors that we're all really looking forward to :-)

So, this was my little one's yesterday right before dinner - they both crashed on opposite ends of the couch, it was so cute (and I love chloe's little belly hanging out, lol).

I'll leave you with a Fancy Pants LO I did last night. The background pp and the chip letters are from the All Fall line and the circle borders are from the new Delight line. Chloe was really into baby sign language for awhile, and she still remembers a lot of signs.



Thanks for letting me whine, everyone! Please tell me your last week has been less dramatic then mine!! :-)

Oh Staci, so sorry to hear about the little ones. I had this happen to my niece, crashing into the a wall and a huge cut on her head, of course it was the night before my wedding and she was our flower girl. Those staples stink and when they are so little they don't understand. Wishing both sweet little ones a much better week!!! I just adore your LO~~~~ Love the detail work and the the circles, are so cute!!!! Wishing you a Wonderful Wednesday!!

Well, yes, I think my week has definitely been less dramatic than yours!! Although my daughter did get bit 3 times by a little dog I was letting stay here. Definitely some blood on that one. But my goodness, girl.....you guys have been through the wringer. So sorry to hear about everything.
Love having a second chance to leave more love on your awesome layout. Already drooled over that one on peas yesterday. I think your design is just so completely cool!!
