All Aboard!

Happy Halloween!
Cason was a train conductor this year because of his love of trains, particularly Thomas the Train. He had so much fun trick-or-treating tonight! He really enjoyed getting candy. Now our challenge is going to be from keeping him from wanting to walk up to our neighbors house any day of the week to get candy!

And he's off!

His first candy. He is saying, "next house please!"

And yesterday Cason helped carve a jack-o-lantern!

Aboretum 2010

Last weekend my mom, dad and I took Cason to the pumpkin patch! Toby was at the Tech Baylor game so we decided to get out and have some fun. My sister and her family met us there too. Enjoy the pics!

All of these pictures show Cason's stitches. He got them out this past week and his head looks SOOO much better! It's amazing how fast our bodies heal!

ER Visits #1 AND #2

That's right, in the past 3 weeks Cason has been to the ER 2 times.

Trip #1
Cason stood up in his high chair, (i was sitting a foot away)leaned over to pick up his sippy cup and fell out of his high chair head first. He hit is head on the tile floor, started crying and then threw up. The fall scared Toby and I to death then he threw up that REALLY scared us so off to the ER we went. He checked out just fine and didn't even have a knot or a bruise.
*Disclaimer* We don't let him stand up in his high chair. I had just told him to sit down and started to reach for him to make him sit down when the accident happened. He doesn't sit in the high chair any more. We put him in a booster seat where we can strap him down. :)

So sad!

Trip #2
This past Wednesday, Cason tripped and hit his head on a drawer that was open not even an inch. He hit is head right on the corner of the drawer. I knew immediately that it wasn't a good fall and one look at his head proved I was right. I grabbed Cason, ran out of the house and over to my neighbors house. I rang their doorbell and sat on their front porch until they answered the door (i know, a little crazy). I asked my neighbor if he could drive me to the ER which he kindly did and waited until Toby got there. My mom also came. I was very glad to have them both there!

After we waited for and hour and half we found out what we already knew. Cason had to have stitches. :( He had a bunch of stitches on the inside and 6 on the outside. He didn't cry a lot when he fell but he screamed his head off while they were stiching him up.

The aftermath...

Now he's has happy as he can be!

His cut doesn't bother him at all! If he sees himself in the mirror he will say "owie" but other than that he acts like nothing is wrong.

I feel like I should win the "Worst Mom of the Year" award. I know that things like this happen and I know that this probably isn't the last time he will get hurt. I am just hoping and praying that it is at least 2 or 3 more years before it happens again. I am NOT cut out for things like this!
