Noah had his appointment with the plastic surgeon yesterday. He was scared to death. He didn't want anyone to go near his thumb. We had to soak his bandage in water for 10 minutes to finally get it off. It looked so gross when it finally came off. The Doctor said everything looked great (yeah sure, just wonderful!!) and he doesn't think there is any damage to the nail bed so the nail will grow back. He said he didn't know if the nail would look normal, but at least there will be a nail. The nurse bandaged it up with an orange gauze wrap and Noah was pretty pleased with that. He kept saying, "orange" the whole way home. He has already lost his bandaid three times now. We are going to have to come up with a better system of wrapping it. He gets so upset when it falls off and makes me kiss his thumb and then "fix it." We go back next week to get all the stitches taken out. Poor Noah.
Joshua had his 4 month appointment today. He's doing just great. He's skinny and tall. He did pretty good with his shots. Noah was excited because his Josha had bandaids too. He has pointed this out to me like a million times! He sure loves his baby!

What is that monkey doing on the kitchen counter? Going for stitches in his head? What a "Jake"! :) Glad all will be well with his finger...isn't it so amazing how resiliant kids are?

Glad he gets to keep his little thumb. What an experience you've had. Little Josh sure is a cutie.

We were actually making cinammon rolls and he was "helping" so it was legal. But every other time he's just naughty. The kids were helping Aaron make cookies the other night and he fell off and crushed his thumb and made it bleed. He's just bad!

Ow! Aaron makes cookies? That's awesome, what kind?

Chocolate Chip, but they sure were good, though I ate too much cookie dough to enjoy any cookies that night.
