Broken bones

The Little Buddy still won't let us pick him up for any reason. It's probably a good transition into true independence since we still put him in his car seat and booster seat among other things but it's sad that it had to happen this way.

I finally called the doctor after a day and she said that the pain he is having could be due to a broken clavicle. Even though W says his back hurts, she said that toddlers have a hard time localizing pain. In the bath last night I saw how right on she was. His left collar bone was super swollen and when I prodded at it, W winced. So we're off for an x-ray today. I am not sure there is much they can do. They said they may put on some kind of splint to make it more bearable but otherwise it should heal on it's own. Is this crazy that this is the 2nd time in his life that he has broken his collar bone?
