Aiden's Hopital Visit
Thursday, morning I went into town to see a few people and Dawn and Aiden stayed home. Aiden waved bye to me and then they went into the house. About 10 minutes later, I get a call from Dawn and she is telling me that she thinks she broke Aiden's wrist. I rush home to find out what is going on.

When I get home, Aiden is crying, his left arm is limp and he doesn't move it. His little wrist looked to be swelling slightly. I stuck him in the car and drove him to the hospital. They said it was Nursemaid's Elbow which is a pretty common injury. Obviously, I wasn't worried about Dawn injuring Aiden, but I didn't know what had happened until Dawn got to the hospital and told me that he was holding her hand and yanked away when she told him they were going to get dressed. I'd say I got a little over excited about the whole thing, but oh well, life lesson I guess.

In the meantime, Keenan is growing quite a bit. He coos and smiles if you tickle him or smile at him. He is continuing to have problems with his tear duct (Aiden had one that was funky too) and he has learned to find his thumb at least part of the time. Sometimes he gets a little too excited and it just won't get in his mouth the way he wants. He is sleeping through most of the night, but tends to wake up early (5:30 or 6am).

I still haven't completed the office, but it doesn't need much at this point (tape/texture, gutters, floor and some trim).

Keenan rolls over
Keenan rolled over on Sunday the 27th. He hasn't really been big on doing it since then, but it was cool when it happened. Both of the kids currently have some little cold thing going on that is creating lots of snot, which is fun. I'm still working on the office and Dawn is getting a little impatient about it. I guess since I told her it would be done before Keenan was born, and now that he is nearly 4 months, she has a right to be a little touchy about it.

In other news, I've added a funky little thing to show you how old Aiden and Keenan are (or were if you look up old entries). The math isn't perfect because it "rounds down" any remainder. For instance if Aiden was almost 11 months, it'll show that he is 10 months. I might add a thing for 1/2 on the month stuff, but for now it isn't there. There is a 1/2 for years until 10 years. Anyway, it was some cool code and I was being a freak.
