A first...

We spent the morning in the ER with Charlie and a sliced finger. He was playing in our bathroom and sliced his finger on our mirror on the back of the closet door (we didn't realize that it was broken at the bottom). Thankfully, Seth was still here and was able to go with us. Charlie did pretty well with the doctor, although he hated the papus thing they wrapped him in to stitch him up (and not fun for me to watch), the nurses said he really did do good and could of fought a lot more. Six stitches later we are back at home and he is happily taking his nap, he was definitely worn out from all the excitement. I will take a picture of the stitches later tonight, I didn't want to take his ban-aid off for a picture when he was already unhappy. But this at least shows you were it is, on the underside/side of his middle finger. I have a feeling this will be the first of many trips we take to the ER for stitches and other accidents!

Update:

Here is a photo of the stitches. He has been good about leaving them alone, but likes to pull the band-aid off. He was also understandably cranky and clingy, so I put him to bed a little early tonight. Hopefully he will feel better in the morning!
