Andrew loves Daddy

Andrew and Derek are eating breakfast together, scrambled eggs with ketchup.  I poured them each a cup of milk and Andrew got a straw for himself and one for Derek.  After eating for a few minutes Derek noticed the straw in his cup and asked why he had one.  Andrew said "I have a straw and so I got you one so you wouldn't feel left out."  I thought it was really cute that Andrew was looking out for Derek.

This Year's New Hats

I made this hat for Andrew.  I think it turned out great.
 A man walks down the street in that hat and people know he isn't afraid of anything. 
Here is the hat that I made for Emmy.  I think I want to line it with fleece so that it is warmer for wintertime.  I made Emmy a little matching scarf, too.  I'm still working on a scarf for Andrew. 
 I think they like them.
I need to get better with the blogging.  It's been so long since I've been on here.  Once again we are entering my favorite season.

Where Have I Been?

No, I didn't fall off the face of the Earth.  I'm still here.  I feel like I've been so busy lately.  I tried to put a picture on here, but it isn't wanting to work for me.  This past Saturday my son Andrew was baptized.  We were very excited for him and it was really nice.  We had lots of relatives and friends come to support him, so he felt really special.

Our First Broken Bone

 Last week on Monday I went to pick up the kids from school, as I usually do.  We walked to the van and started to get in. Andrew was pretending to have a hard time getting into the van, so he had his hand in the door frame to hoist himself in.  Emmy was already in, so she decided to close her door.  She didn't see Andrew's hand there and she closed the door on his hand, but it didn't latch.  Andrew really cried and he had a large bruise and huge bump on the back of his hand.  When we left for the hospital Derek and Emmy stayed home and Derek said as soon as we walked out the door Emmy started sobbing about how she had hurt Andrew.  We saw the doctor and Andy got x-rays taken of his hand.  The doctor said it looked like he had a hairline fracture in his second metacarpal.  A nurse wrapped his hand in a splint.

On Friday I took Andy to a bone specialist.  He said it looked like there were two fractures, one in the second and one in the third metacarpals.  He wrapped Andrew's hand in a sturdier splint and will see him again in a couple of weeks.

I was surprised he didn't do a cast, as is almost everybody I talk to about it.  I've had to rewrap the bandage several times already and I've had my mom do it, too.  Sometimes when he is playing he forgets that there are some things that he can't do and his bandage comes undone at the end.  I can't wait till he gets to take it all the way off.  This is the first broken bone that either of our kids has had and hopefully will be the last.
