Blue Gloves

Ava is in that lovely independent stage where she wants to do everything "by self". If it seems too hard, she will find a way. This particular time, she wanted to get into her highchair and wasn't going to wait for mommy and she pulled up a chair to climb up and she fell back in her attempt and hit the table on the way down. She was incredibly tuff. She needed stitches in the back of her head, 4 to be exact. She was super good at the hospital and charmed all the nurses. After she was finished she was offered a variety of toys and treats, but she only wanted a pair of blue gloves like the doctor and that is just what she got (she even turned down an Popsicle that was unwrapped and ready for her). She played with them for hours the next day until they broke. We were so proud how well she did. She is such a great kid!

So is she the first one to get stiches? And it's your girl not your boys?! That's good you won't see the scar. I'm glad you didn't have to go through what we had to when Chase got his. I'm glad she's a lot better than he was.
