Baby Down! BABY DOWN!

I have been so bad about getting Davis' pictures done lately. I mean, reallly bad! I haven't had any done since February, and even those were family pictures. So I was determined to get some done for the holidays. I found the cutest little pj outfit and sweater for the little occasion and of course I was so excited! I could also tell Davis was just so excited, too. (I am actually shocked he didn't try to pull his hat off, so we did good!)

Yesterday was the first time we had pictures taken since he is mobile. And by mobile, I mean all over the place, into everything, and does not want to sit still. Did I really decide to do this? If you are a mom to a toddler, you know exactly what I am talking about. Whew! Good times. Well, let me tell you, Davis did really well. Really well for a 15 month old that did not want to sit still. It was so hard choosing which pictures as there were such adorable ones to choose from. I wanted ALL of them! But what in the world would I do with 100+ pictures?! I can only keep so many!

After the pictures are snapped and captured, we waited until our pictures were being processed. (If there is a Portrait Innovations near you, I highly suggest it!) Davis was playing with other little kids on the Lego table and it was so precious watching them all together.

Look at him! So big! About .5 seconds after I took this picture, the awful happened. I don't know who is more traumatized. Him or me. While he was walking back up to the table, he did a face plant right on the edge. I did the usual, 'you're okay, just get back up!' Then I noticed blood on my hand. Why is my hand covered in blood?!? Oh hell! Running to the bathroom and trying to stay calm myself, I looked at his chin. Lord, there is a huge gash in his chin. He is of course kicking and screaming, and I feel like I may cry. There was a doctor in the building that came over and helped us, telling me Davis may have to get stitches. Wait! Stitches. Deep breath, calm down Jessica. Where is Michael when I need him. He always calms me down. The nice doctor tells me about the urgent care place down the street and I rushed to get there. If I had gotten pulled over, I was rehearsing the speech in my head, or would have just had the police officer follow me to urgent care and plead for mercy. Thank goodness that didn't happen :) Although it was a fairly large gash, they were able to glue his chin back and avoid stitches. Ahhh...relief! If he does bust his chin again in the next couple of days, he will have to get stitches. Is is possible to wrap him in bubble wrap for the time being?

We went back to pick up our pictures and I was thinking about how good Davis had been for the entire thing. He stayed pretty calm when they had to open it up a little and clean it up. I just wanted to hold him like a little baby and tell him he'll be okay. I wanted to give him a treat for being such a good boy. Just as we were about to get back in the car, the heavens made me notice the bakery next to the photo place. Yes, Davis NEEDS cupcake! So, I got FOUR! After dinner last night, Davis got to devour a little cupcake and it was absolutely adorable!

He's feeling much better, but I can tell his little chin is hurting him pretty bad. So take a look at some of the pictures we had made yesterday! Aren't they just the cutest! I just want to eat him up :)

I can't imagine! We are just waiting for the day Aiden hurts himself badly. He is into everything and is a little daredevil! Sounds like you acted really calmly though.

Those pjs and sweater set really is perfect for Christmas pictures too. Can't wait to see the rest!

That's equal parts awesome and awful.

The busted chin part is like my worst nightmare. Poor Davis! I'm sure the cupcake helped though.

And the pictures...they are beyond adorable!!

The pictures came out so well. Glad a little glue and a cupcake were able to help him feel better.

I know it will happen (and probably sooner rather than later) but I break out into a sweat thinking about urgent care, or ER runs... eekk

I am glad all is well - and I would think it perfectly acceptable to wrap him in bubble wrap!

Poor Davis. Poor mom. I hope Davis is feeling better. What fantastic photos. I am impressed he kept that on, too.
