What is Hudson up to Wednesday
to add to the crazy transition that we have had since we have been back from Idaho, this little guy landed himself into the emergency room Monday night.
Awesome right?!
Not so much.

Kalob and I were working out in the living room where we had the exercise ball and some free weights. mistake number one.
We stopped to watch the third quarter of the Notre Dame vs. Alabama game.
mistake number two.
Within a matter of seconds Hudson is screaming and I looked to find there were no weights on the ottoman but instead there it was on his poor little hand. 30lb free weight fell from 2 feet, and crushed his hand.
I don't even think we discussed whether or not we were going to the ER, we just met in the car and drove.

Hudson was hysterical.
Movies were watched.
X-rays were done.
Tears were streaming like waterfalls.
Cuddles were given.
Warm milk was on hand to comfort.
Doctors and nurses were sure that there was damage that they were have to fix.
They were sure that it was broken. 
But some how, some way, not a single broken...anything.
It should have crushed his hand.

They sent us home.
We went to bed.
And we woke up to this...

Poor kid right?!
But what a freakin champ!

He woke us as happy as ever.
Not phased by it at all.
He keeps trying to wipe off the bruise, thinking his hand is dirty.
So sad, but so cute at the same time.

 So grateful for a happy, healthy baby today.

    Hope his hand heals up quickly :)

  14. Oh my word, my heart sank reading this (and how cute is his little x-ray hand?!) but I am SO relieved he is okay! We had a similar incident on Christmas Eve -- Ethan scaled a chair and fell right on his face onto the tile, a huge welt just started forming -- ugh. These things happen so fast! :(

  15. Oh my gosh. The Lord was definitely watching over your little man! I'm so glad to hear that nothing was broken. My goodness! What a trooper, though. Glad he's still smiling. His smiles are the best!
