Except for the whole premature experience, we have not had any major bumps or bruises. Until now. Thursday night marks the date. Kohen was in the bathtub waiting on me to get him out. He was standing up holding onto the side, I reached to get the towel and his feet slid out from under him. His chin hit the side of the bathtub, then his TEETH. He fell over and his eye hit the faucet. Blood went everywhere!!!! I saw his front teeth hit the side of the tub so I knew the blood was coming from his mouth. Much to my amazement I did not panic. I grabbed him and the washcloth. When I finally go him to stop crying I could see his front tooth was about 1/3 gone. I still am not sure where the blood was coming from. He would not let me look. His eye was already starting to swell. (Remember that I am home by myself!!!!!) I called Dr. Stewart. He told me to look to see if the nerve of the tooth was exposed. Thankfully it wasn't. Kohen was acting like his normal self. He even drank some cold milk. I gave him some Tylenol to help him sleep and he did great. Yesterday his eye was purple but nothing else seemed to bother him. We will see a pedodontist next week to look at his tooth. It is really sharp. It chipped diagonally, not straight across. I called mom to come over. She assured me this is the first of many falls and accidents!! Hopefully no more teeth accidents!!!
The flash on my camera quit working so I had to send it back to the manufacturer. Shannon is going to bring hers over today to get a picture of Kohen's tooth.

Today Kohen got his first haircut. It was a total disaster. He would not sit still, tried to pull the cape off, tried to grad the scissors, you name it he did it. We did manage to get his hair cut though. Somehow it is even curlier than before. The picture is a little blurry because he would not be still!!!
