I had quite the day today.

I guess I should explain.

Yesterday Jacob took a spill and made serious eye contact with a metal magazine rack.

The poor guy cried more than I think he’s ever cried in his life.

Because the injury was to his eye I took him to the pediatrican to make sure it was OK.  The pediatrician in turn sent him to a pediatric ophthalmologist for a more thorough examination to be on the safe side.

So, I was planning on posting a picture of Jacob’s swollen, bruised, dilated eye today.

However, when I downloaded the pictures, I found this:

I think it’s the coolest accidental photo I’ve ever taken.

Sorry, Jacob.  The picture of your eyes is going to have to wait.

    Oh no! I hope Jacob’s eye is ok. I know eye exams at the doctor aren’t all that fun in general, so I’m sure it was even worse with a sore eye!
