Lazy Saturday

Well... we had an eventful day. What started out as a peaceful morning turned into Sunday Bloody Sunday (except that it's Saturday), including a trip to the Urgent Care Clinic. Allow me to explain...

It all started last night, when Claire decided she wasn't ready to go to sleep until later than usual. So, since Claire went to bed later, she didn't wake up at her typical 7AM-ish time... which meant we all slept in until about 8:30AM (when Claire finally awoke). She was jabbering away in her crib (she now repeats mah-mah-mah-mah-mah and bah-bah-bah-bah-bah over and over again, with a random pffft sound mixed in every now and again). Momma, Stew and I were in the master bedroom listening to Claire over the baby monitor making progressively louder pffft noises until Momma finally decided to go get Claire and bring her into bed. Sounds innocent enough, right? Well, Momma put Claire between her and Stew, and Claire eventually started to get restless, at which point she starts to kick and move her head from side-to-side (we call it her Stevie Wonder impression). So, Stew - who is still lying flat in bed - decided to pick Claire up and hold her above his head/face. As usual, Claire smiled from ear to ear and pretended to be flying. She especially likes when Stew raises and lowers her above his face (the most exercise Stew has gotten in 5 months). Then, Stew decides to start tossing Claire in the air and catching her (as he's done MANY times in the past). But, apparently, Stew was still a little groggy this morning. On about the 10th toss in the air, Claire came down and slipped between Stew's hands... crashing head on with Stew's snout. Don't worry - Claire was not hurt. In fact, she didn't even make a sound... she only opened her eyes real wide with a "what the heck just happened?" expression on her face. Meanwhile, Stew's crying like a little girl holding his nose, from which blood was gushing (yuck!). He's been hit in the schnoz a million times, never managing to actually break it... until today. Unfortunately, we didn't get a BEFORE shot of Stew's crooked nose because he wasn't in the mood to pose for such nonsense. But, upon his return from the Urgent Care Clinic, he reluctantly agreed to pose for the attached photo. He's holding Claire to show that she is just fine, although we're not sure she recognizes her Papa anymore. So, in honor of today's event, here's a clip of the Saturday Night Live digital short film - Lazy Sunday. I realize today is Saturday, but I can't think of any clips about an uneventful Saturday to post... so, you're stuck with this one:

I'd just love to write more, but I have to get ready to watch Georgetown kick the snot out of Ohio State. Go Hoyas!
