Ethan has more firsts ~~~
Okay so this isn't one that I'm excited about, but this morning he started to cry and I ran over to where he was, there was a huge bumble bee moving around on the floor. So unfortunately he got stung by the bee!!! I was looking around for a while trying to find where on his body he was stung, but I couldn't see any stinger sticking out anywhere. And Ethan was crying the whole time, sort of thrashing around in my arms. I felt so bad for him, and still do. But after about a few minutes I could see the white spot and then the redness followed by some "swelling" . I was concerned about all of this, and called the nurse who told me what to look for, but that this was a normal reaction with a sting on the hands and feet. I took a picture, so I could remember this. And how I felt when my little baby was harmed. Poor Ethan.
Ethan's first bee sting:
I'm holding onto his arm to try and keep it still. I'm still concerned about the tip of his finger just under his nail, because it's purple, and not because of a marker.
