This morning we went to E’s birthday party. It was brilliant, she had bug shaped cakes which I forgot to photograph and butterfly sandwiches. The all sat on the picnic blanket eating their food…
Then they played on all the toys in the garden before the birthday cake was brought out…. It was a big hit, we even found big chunks of the candle missing after we left it unattended! We’re not sure which child ate it but a certain 16 month old had wax pieces on his tshirt!!!
Then there was silence while they ate it….
Then it was home time……………………………………
Hmmm A&E!! We were having a great time at Squidges party and just before going home we took a trip to the bathroom! Noah was tired so I took him with us…should have left him to cry but hindsight is a great thing!! On the way down I was infront of him and he pushed between my leg and the banister, as soon as he got free the momentum catapulted him down the stairs and I just watched him fly through the air, land on his face and bounce back off it flipping over and landing at the bottom where Lindy picked him up. She then just saw blood and lots of it!!!! I took him and Victoria went to get something to mop the blood up with. There was lots and lots of blood so much so none of us could tell how badly cut he was or if his teeth were ok! Poor Caitlin went pale and started crying asking what was wrong with Noah. Lindy and Vic took turns to look after Cailtin while we tried to figure out how much damage Noah had done, with all the blood we couldn’t so we decided to go to A&E. Lindy came too to watch Cailtin and Vic took care of locking up. Once we got to A&E the bleeding had pretty much stopped and I could tell he was essentially fine, just a very fat lip. Caitlin had calmed down now that the hysterical crying had stopped, and so Lindy left since we were all fine. So he is fine, shaken but fine! Here he is straight after A&E and also this morning now that the swelling has taken effect….
Doesn’t look good but it really doesn’t seem to be bothering him in the slightest. He ate all of his tea and more last night and slept through.
Me and Richard went out for tea and a drink for our anniversary and his birthday….
