Snips and Snails....

So I'm at work for 45 minutes on Tuesday, and I get a phone call. Bruce is very upset (and sounding rough, too, with the cold he is getting over), and telling me that we need to take Alexander to the ER. Seems he was runnung from our bedroom to Heather's bedroom to see if she was ready to go to work (Bruce and the kids were taking her). His goofy toddler body + his Lightening McQueen legs = tripping and falling face first(full force!) into her door jam. They came and picked me up from work and went straight to the ER. For a good hour, he couldn't even stand up on his own! He never lost conciousness, though, and after a couple days of a very stoic Alexander, he is getting back to normal. He likely suffered a minor concussion, hence his 2 day loss of appetite and sedate nature-the Dr. said children his age bounce back sooner than adults do because of their insatiable need to stay active. I wonder how little boys even make it to adulthood??? You can almost tell here in the picture that his whole forehead was swollen.
