Julia had an eye appointment in Burlington yesterday. They wanted to check her eyes because they weren't quite straight when she was newborn. Everything was fine, she just outgrew it. I am so glad that Jim had taken the day off because I had just come down with the flu on tuesday. It would not have been fun with three kids on a four hour trip by myself.
The doctor had dilated Julia's pupils to check them and it was a nice, very sunny day out. So of course the sun bothered her eyes. After the appointment we went to Dick's to buy me some new shoes. I actually bought the first pair I tried on, that was different. We went to Border's after that, Jim took the kids in and I changed Julia diaper in the van. Then something happened that puzzles me. I got out of the van and closed the door while trying to shield the sun from Julia's eyes. I heard a thump and Julia's leg went out, so I assumed she kicked her leg and hit the van. She started crying and wiggling and I thought it was because of the sun in her eyes. But then I noticed blood on my hand. I looked down her foot was dripping blood. After taking care of it in the van I surveyed the damage. The front of her toes were all scraped up and she had a pretty big cut on the bottom of her little toe which was bleeding pretty badly. Thankfully I had a small bandaid in the van. I have no idea what happened to cut up her toes like that. The only thing I can think of is maybe I closed her toes in the door while trying to shield her from the sun. But even that seems unlikely because she didn't cry when I shut the door. And you would think that I would know if she had her toes in the door. Anyway, I included a picture of her poor toes and somewhat still dilated eyes. Oh yeah and I got blood on my new shoes 5 minutes after putting them on.
