Stitches times two

Sami and Wes have each had an Er visit and stitches...two months apart.
The fall happened on December 9th. This was from our Christmas card "photo shoot" days before.
She tripped and fell and hit her nose on the corner of our end table. I was out of the room with Wes. So we can't blame it on him. I noticed that she actually is a bit clumsy and falls alot. Pair that with being a bit fearless and I'm afraid this won't be our last visit.
Before the Plastic surgeon stitched her up. Weird watching your baby get drugged up. She handled it all like the sweet little thing she is.
10 stitches later.
She got the kind that dissolved, so we didn't have to deal with getting them removed. We had many nights afterward when she would roll over on her face and woke up screaming.
Playing at a friends days latter. The whole episode was more traumatic for me then for her.
Took these a few days ago. Doctor said the scar would be red for a year. But it has already faded and you really have to look to see it.
Weston months before his fall. On February 8th he had a fight with the fireplace and well...Wes lost. I have more guilt involved with his fall, since he was leaning on a pillow that I pulled out from under him...Yep I'm a bad mom, I know. Patience (that I don't have) gets thin with walking, climbing twins...
Before the ER doctor stitched him up.
Only 5 stitches later.
He's not going to compete with his sister about the number of stitches they have had, right?
His stitches had to be removed and we replaced with steri strips which he still has now.
Wes itches his head alot, but we haven't had alot of waking up in the middle of the night.
My silly scarred children playing...

I thought Sami got more like 12-15 stitches.

Wes seemed more upset about us not letting him play around in the waiting room, and then the ID band they put on him made him more upset then getting the stitches put in.
