Acromioclavicular Separation

Matt went snowboarding for the first time in 3.5 years-ish, and of course, he ended up in the emergency room, thinking he dislocated his shoulder. After waiting for 4-5 hours and changing 4 of Scott's diapers, we found out that his shoulder isn't technically dislocated, and that a ligament had actually torn, separating his clavicle (collarbone) from his scapula (shoulder blade), also known as acromioclavicular (or AC) separation. So, Matt is literally in for a world of hurt over the next 6-8 weeks while it heals. We're planning on going to an orthopaedic surgeon this week to find out if he needs surgery. Oh the joys. Here's a video to show you his shoulder (he didn't want me to show his face):


I have done peek-a-boo a lot with Scott, but last night was the first time he thought it was funny. Enjoy :)

Waking up is hard to do

The second video is a little long. I always have a hard time watching long videos of babies that aren't mine, so I won't be hurt if you don't watch the whole thing :)
