James and I have reached a milestone in our role as parents. We have now survived a trip to the Emergency Room. Natalie was playing with her cousins when she decided to pull a stocking hanging from the fireplace. The stocking came down, along with its holder, splitting open the area just above her lip. It wasn't too bad, she was playing again within 5 minutes, but since it was on her face, we wanted to play it safe. So after 3 hours (8-11pm) in the ER, Natalie came home a little high and with three stitches. It's already looking great, and it's only been 5 days, but we were told that we need to put sunscreen on it three times a day for a year so it doesn't bleach. Natalie did awesome at the hospital, she was so brave and hardly cried at all. And at the end, she got a purple popsicle, which at times we had to guide into her mouth because she was a little out of it.
