BM has had many firsts these last few weeks. First cab ride (annoying crazy driver), first boat ride (very wet), first New York City subway ride (very very dirty), and many more mostly pleasant firsts. But today he had some not so fun firsts. Today was his first trip to the emergency room visit, his first x-rays, his first bloody nose, and his first broken nose. I was walking down the stairs with BM in one arm while talking to SheRoos with my cell phone when I slipped and my feet fell out from under me. BM slipped out of my hands and we both went tumbling down the stairs with BM taking a nasty hit at the bottom. BM will be ok and thank goodness the x-rays came out negative for any fractures. Before becoming a first time parent I didn’t truly realized how much I would love my child and how much terror I would have at the thought of him being seriously hurt. The doctor said he will swell up in and around his nose the next few days but should be fine.
