Claire's First ER Trip

No, she did not bite her foot off. This photo is merely for your own amusement. She still prefers to sit in the highchair. I checked the weight. It's good for 50 lbs. I don't know how much longer her legs will fit comfortably under that tray though!
And the ER trip...which was about 3 weeks ago...but as we know, I'm behind on everything, including sleep and laundry. So she smacked her head on our bedframe, which we are totally throwing away if we ever move again. It has a hard shelf basically as the headboard. She wasn't even jumping on the bed or anything. She merely went to lay back and flopped down. The force of her head hitting the shelf broke the skin. It bled a lot and there was a huge knot right away. We took her to the ER for stitches. They now use a glue quite commonly on skin wounds...even on C-Sections and heart surgeries!!! But it's about time they came up with something better. It seems pretty primitive to have to give a shot to numb the area, then stick more little needle holes in it to sew it up! So here it was about a week later, healing nicely. It sure looks pretty small, but apparently scalp wounds bleed a lot!

I'm glad she's ok! Poor kid!
