First Hospital Visit!

July was a very accident filled month! In mid July, Holton fell into the wall at school and got his first black eye. He asked everybody, "What happened to my poor wittle eye?" Of couse, he milked it for all it was worth!

The following weekend, Holton was at Harley's birthday party and fell off the ladder on the playset. He cried for about 10 minutes and then continued playing - but he was really giving to his left arm. Kyle called me (I was at Kori's house with the girls) and we decided to go ahead and get it checked out at the ER. Holton was a ham and had way too much fun for being in the hospital! Two and a half hours, and a whole lot of laughs later, we left with a buckle fracture in his left radius. Yes~he is left handed, but he has learned to use his right arm pretty good! When we went to see the pediatric ortho, he decided it would be best without a cast (thank GOD!) and gave us a removeable brace that he will be wearing for 4 weeks! Poor Holton!!! He has been spoiled rotten for the last couple of weeks!

Thanks to all of our family and friends who have SPOILED our little guy! The ER trip would have been a nightmare without Nanny and Papa! He loves the bowling set Nina and Papa got him, the book from Alesha and Cameron, and the nerf ball gun from Steph, Andy, and Maggie Claire! But even more, thanks EVERYONE for visiting and checking on him daily! We love you guys!

For some reason, my pictures won't upload, but I will try to get them up soon!
