Scarface






Austin now has a new nickname. Scarface. It happened this Saturday. We dropped the boys off at Brian's parents house so we could go to the temple. Upon our arrival back we saw our beautiful baby boy with a large band aid on his forehead. When I asked what happened I was told, "he needs stitches". About 3 hours earlier he was sitting on Grandpa Brent's lap when he decided to jump off. Apparently he forgot he has no balance yet and went head first for the coffee table. He seemed to be quite over it by the time we returned because he was all smiles. We changed our clothes and went to the emergency room. 3 1/2 hours later we left with "liquid" stitches. For those of you who have not damaged your children yet, "liquid" stitches is basically super glue. So now Austin is walking around with dry, hard glue on his forehead. But the good news is, it should scar less than regular stitches. In the mean time Austin turns one in a week and we will be postponing his one year pictures until the glue has worn off. These are some before and after pictures.

Hi guys!! I am glad Brian sent Trav the link to your blog. I miss you guys. Glad to see you are doing so well. Your boys are darling. I am so bad at keeping in touch, but we'll have to catch up better some time. Blogs are good that way.
