Rocket Man Needs Some Goggles!

Finnegan received a Rocket on wheels for Christmas from the McGrandparents. He has figured out how to ride it already, well... kinda! (see below)

Other news, for those of you who weren't at our house yesterday...
We had an emergency trip to the doctor. We decided to have the McFamily over for the Sunday football game(I said "Bad Bears"). Five cousins in our little house seemed to be working out ok, until the two oldest decided that Finnegan is probably old enough to play with them, and tried to include him in the old game, "Basket for a hat". Well, the basket didn't quite make it on Finn's head, and completely by accident, it hit him in the eye!
I proceeded to extract him from the situation and calm down the crying with a pacifier(that didn't work), then a bottle(which seemed to help a bit better), then a whole lot of cuddles.
Brandon called the Consulting Nurse at Group Health, because throughout all of this comforting he hadn't opened his eyes. When he did, we noticed that there were a couple of scratches on the eye itself, so the Nurse told us to take him to Urgent Care.
We left the McFamily to finish watching the Football game, and loaded up the babe, and took off down our icy road to the doctor.
The doc took a look through some fancy glasses, with a fancy light, and said he did indeed have a few scratches on the cornea. She prescribed some antibiotics(an ointment we have to put in the eye a few times a day), and said that the eyes tend to heal themselves pretty quick, and we should follow up with an optometrist in a couple of days.

So... as they say... All's Well that Ends Well!
