See the birthday boy who turned 5!
See the birthday boy on his new slip and slide!

Yes, turning 5 also marked Buddy's first trip to the Emergency Room. This picture actually looks a lot better than the actually boo-boo did. Right after he and his cousin konked heads, he had this blue sack hanging over his eye (which turned out to be a broken blood vessel). We put ice on it and all the adults present decided it didn't look good, so we went straight to the ER. They were wonderful there. By that time, the rest of the eye lid swelled, which (is what you see in the picture) made the sack not look so nasty. And of course, the next day the bruise was even worse. When he shuts his eye, you can see he has quite the shiner.
