My beautiful baby has had a couple of "incidents" over the last few weeks that have earned him the nickname Humpty Dumpty. He has required all of the king's horses and all of the king's men (pediatric dentist and pediatric urgent care physician) to put his face back together again. :(
I'm so glad that I took some pictures of his face before it was changed forever. Sniff, sniff. :(
It wasn't until we were back home and I was feeding him dinner that I realized that he had broken off half of his front tooth! I was (and still am) soooo upset about it. I got him in to see our pediatric dentist first thing the next morning. They did X-rays and assured me that it is not as bad as it looks. It looks pretty bad. :(
I was so upset during the exam, that I didn't get any pictures of Owen's first dentist appointment. Mom fail. :( I thought about it in the parking lot and snapped a quick picture with his tooth brush.
I still have no earthly idea how he cut it on the stair gate. I know that Clayton didn't have anything to do with it, because he was halfway up the stairs before Owen even fell. I think that he must have just tripped or something. I guess we'll never know.
I was too upset to think, so I told Wade to call Leah. I joke that she is the other half of my brain, and that day she really was! ;) I knew that he needed stitches or something beyond what I could do, I just wasn't sure where to take him. At Leah's suggestion, we loaded up to go to the Cook's Urgent Care near us.
The bleeding had pretty much stopped, but we slapped a Cars band-aid on Poor Baby's forehead for the car ride. Have you ever seen anything so pitiful? Breaks my heart...
