Merry Christmas and Big Surprise!

For Christmas my parents got to come out and visit for a week, which was fun to see them. While they were here my parents, little brother and his family and my family drove up to Rexburg to visit my older brother and his family. It was fun to be around family and hang out and catch up. We had a pretty good Christmas.

Now for the surprise.... For most of you who know me well enough to know my children, my oldest two as babies were really rather mellow and easy going. With Speedy he is the exact opposite, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised because his entrance into the world was very revealing of the type of baby/toddler he has been. He gave me a little less than 2 hours after the first contraction to realize this was the real thing and get to the hospital before he was born. Since then he has been rather content when awake. But eats like there is no tomorrow, acts like he hasn't eaten in days each time he sees food. Didn't sleep well for the first way too long of his life. Is into EVERYTHING. Onto EVERYTHING. And is all boy and then some. He is a handful and is enthusiastic about life. I didn't go into his pregnancy thinking it would be my last, but he has me wondering if I have the capability to mother any more, definitely not at this moment I have my work cut out for me. So this is what he surprised us with.

Yep that's right he broke his arm. You may ask, how does a 16 month old break his arm? The bathroom door was left open and he climbed onto the bathroom counter and the hubby walked in just to see him fall off. He's still as active as normal and doesn't let it slow him down.

Oh! Poor little guy! Better an arm than a leg'd get awfully tired caring him around everywhere if he couldn't walk! Hope it's a "speedy" recovery. :)

Poor little guy, that is no fun. At least he seems pretty happy in his pictures, does it slow him down at all? Maybe for your sake?

Ryan & Amanda said...

Pretty crazy! He seems pretty happy though, so that is good!

Oh my gosh, that's horrible! I'm glad to hear he's okay and it definitely seems like he's not letting it slow him down at all! Hope you guys are doing well!
