04-10-15 It's all fun and games until someone runs into a door...

Big E and I have a game. When I blow dry my hair in the morning, he likes me to point the dryer at him and he runs away. A moment later he will return and I do it again. 

This morning, he asked to play so I turned on the hair dryer and pointed it at him. He turned around and ran full speed into the corner of the open door! It didn't sound loud, but he started crying immediately and when he turned around, he had the largest lump on his head I've ever seen! 

This picture doesn't even do it justice. This thing was sticking out about an inch to an inch and a half out from his forehead! 

Major mommy freak out moment!! I tried putting ice on it, but it hurt him so bad. So I settled on cold wet paper towels that I kept switching out. I had several people come to my house to look at him. (The blessing of being three doors down from family and blocks away from good friends!) In the end I decided to take him to the doctor just to make sure he didn't have a concussion. 

Fortunately I was able to get him into the doctor. By the time we got there the swelling had gone down quite a bit. The doctor checked his skull and ears and said that he seemed to be fine. So, I dropped him off at Moms Morning Out and headed to work. 

When I got home this evening the swelling as much better, but the bruising had definitely spread. Poor little guy!

Before all the ruckus this morning, I did capture some cute pics of the kids together! Baby E seems less than thrilled!
