little boy blue...

a visit to the orthopedic doctor and 6 more x-rays, and the official verdict is in ...fractured growth plate in his ankle. elijah has to wear a long leg cast for 2 weeks. we picked baby blue of course! unfortunatley, he'll have to wear it for easter and his birthday.

this visit went so much smoother than the first...there was minimal fussing when he saw the x-ray table, let the doctor do his stuff, and he was completely mezmorised as the guy put on his cast (as opposed to kicking and screaming on saturday). the doctor says it should be healed within 10 days and that it shouldn't affect his growth at all. although it's a little bulky, it's actually so much better than his first one. he gets around so much better. not to mention, it's so much cuter!

Poor little Elijah, but like you said, at least the cast is cute. Um, your party for your kiddos....holy cow! It looks like the party of the year. How fun you are.

Poor little Elijah...And, can I just say that your candy land birthday party looked amazing. You are going to have a hard time topping that one next year. :-) Your kids are getting so much older. I can't believe that Renee is that old!
