Never a dull moment

I know I have a lot of updating to do, but remember this?
Today we have this:
And he ate breakfast like this:
Same bone, same break, same boy.

Last night around 7:00, Nolan was doing his gymnastics and things got a little crazy.  Nolan fell to the ground and screamed, "I broke my leg again!"  We were in the ER until a little after 11:00 and got Nolan to bed around 12:30.  He slept most of the night and is doing very well so far today.  We are trying to figure out the logistics of school and gymnastics and everything (everything including the fact that I am 38 weeks pregnant today), but he is happy and only occasionally in pain.  (A few minutes ago he plastered on the most pathetic face he could muster and looked up at me and said, "Swedish fish would make me feel much better.")

The x-ray lady showed us Nolan's previous x-ray and it looks exactly the same as the new one.  The orthopedist told me last November that Nolan's bones hadn't properly fused, so we have been wondering if this would happen again someday.  The doctor we saw last night said he has NEVER seen a kid whose bones didn't fuse.  I will call the orthopedist first thing tomorrow morning and they want to see him Tuesday or Wednesday.  Nolan is still too short for crutches, so he might be going to school in a wagon for a little while.  I am not sending him until he has a hard cast.

And THAT is my update for now.  I have some very cute first day of school pictures to share as well as our adventures with our 8-week visitors and 15 people in my house.  I just have to get the pictures from Doug.  He stole them all.

I'm excited for more updates! :) Too bad about Nolan's leg, though. Poor kid. However, I have to vouch for him and 110% agree that Swedish fish DO make everything better. :)
