First Boo-Boo :(

Poor Emersyn experienced yet another first yesterday.....her first real boo-boo. Brett and I had an appointment to go to so we left Uncle David to babysit. Right before we left, we put Emersyn down, hoping she would take a little nap since she hadn't had one in the afternoon like normal. Well, being the naughty girl that she is, she decided that taking a nap didn't sound like fun but pulling herself up on her crib did! We got a call as we were trying to figure out what to for dinner (our appointment had gotten cancelled) and David let us know that Ems was bleeding pretty bad and that we might want to come home. He felt SO bad, which made me feel bad because this was in NO way his fault. We got home and her upper lip was bleeding pretty badly. We got our things together and got in the car to take her to urgent care. I called an advice nurse just to confirm that we were doing the right thing in taking her in and she said that Emerysn most likely tore the little piece of skin that connects your upper lip to your gum and that it will bleed quite a bit because the mouth is a moist environment, thus making it hard to coagulate.

We took Emersyn back inside the house and let her have a popsicle which she enjoyed very much. While I was giving her a bath, Daddy lowered her crib hoping to avoid any such injury again. Once we got her all ready for bed, we looked in her crib and saw that Twin, her beloved stuffed monkey, also bore the pain of our sweet girl....



Into the washing machine he went!

The good news is, Emersyn slept great last night and was a happy little clam this morning, calling for Mommy and Daddy. So cute. :)

Oh, poor Emersyn! I am glad she is such a trooper. Did she fall out of her crib? We just lowered Ellie's mattress today, because she would have been able to get out if she wanted to. I hope you guys are all doing ok and that David doesn't feel bad.
