First Blood

Such an original title huh?

Let me tell you the story.

I put the boys in their cribs for their morning naps. Payden sits up and then throws his pacifier out of the crib. He then pulls himself up to his knees in his crib and holds onto the railing. I'm only guessing that he started bouncing (which he LOVES to do) and hit his teeth and gums on the railing of the crib.

Here's what happened to the crib. There's also the side too.. I'm not sure if it happened here or on another day. Hopefully it's okay to eat wood.

I used a wet washcloth and got as much of the blood as I could out of his mouth. I know you're supposed to put pressure on it to try to stop the bleeding but he wouldn't let me. He was crying so hard because I'm sure it hurt plus he was SO tired. When it finally seemed to stop, I rocked him, sang to him and put him back in his crib for his nap.

I will have to take a closer look to see if his teeth were damaged in any way. I guess there's a first for everything. I think I am going to have Christian lower the cribs today so he can't just "knee" up anymore. Maybe that will motivate him to pull up with his feet and it will probably happen again.

Poor boy! I chewed on my crib too and so did both my boys.
