This was taken on Tamika's Iphone so the quality is not as good
At first I was not going to share these images, mostly for the criticism I received when I shared Jarvis’s last big injury. Then I thought stuff it, this is my blog, and the reason I started it was a record of my family. Part of that is my dare devil son. Yes he is adventurous and with that comes the falls. This time it is another major one. This image is after the blood has been washed off.
Besides being a record of Jarvis’s injury, it shows just how much love my two children have for each other. The day was meant to be about helping Tamika move into her new apartment. Instead Tamika dropped everything to be with her brother.
Jarvis has not only split open his top lip, he has cracked? Broken his two top teeth. The bad news is that he has to have surgery on Thursday. They will put him under and the surgery should take two to three hours. They will remove the nerves and cap the teeth.
They are waiting until Thursday to see if his spilt lip can heal a bit and (fingers crossed) his teeth do not fall out.
I was a mess yesterday, so much blood, combined with a broken tooth protruding from my son’s lip. Tamika, Bubby, love you so much thank you for always being there for you little brother and for me.
Jodi over at Che and Fidel has inspired me to pick up my camera and turn the focus inward. Since I already take 100s of photos of my children each week, so I thought I would twist the idea a little. What I never seem to get is group shots, images of the family together, whether it is my two children, Tamika and Jarvis, or me with the kids, or shots of Justin and I. So I am going to challenge myself to get one image of "my family" per week.
