End of November

Today brings the end of November. The temperature has dropped and still no snow. I am starting to wonder if I will get a white Christmas.

Christina has a good day at school. Her and mommy butted heads today, but it didn't last long. Christina and I had our normal routine of talk time(she tells me about her day), dinner, play, and our walk outside. I bundled her up in her snow suit and boots and she laughed and giggled all the while outside. She really enjoys the colder temps outside. And she likes the walks in the dark.

Bedtime went overly well. The princess was tired, no nap today. She smiled when I put her to bed with no tears or talking.

We also turned on Skype and said "Goodnight" to mommy. Angela was doing homework and it was nice for Christina to be able to see her and say goodnight.

This evening I am thinking about old times. Gives me a little smile.
Visiting with fam

Today Christina and I went to see James, Robyn, Sarah, and Ruby. Christina watched Ruby swim. Christina walked around beautifully and laughed when walking by the water slide and getting splashed.

Christina said "Hi" to everyone and also shared her monkey with Ruby. Christina also showed everyone how she could count from 1 to 10 and count backwards from 10 to 1.

When we came home she hung out mommy and then they went to visit grandma Patti. Christina sat on grandma's lap and typed on the computer.

I left for the afternoon to have coffee. It was nice to relax a bit. I also went to the gym again, quite happy for myself. Christina and I walked lots when I came home before bath. Christina wore me out.

Today I was/am sick. I have a cold, yuck. Angela is sick also and Christina is getting sick.

Today Christina and I played at home. The goal was to keep Christina from getting sick. So far she is doing ok. We had a lot of fun walking up and down the hall and peeking out the window. We also sang, read, and sat on the couch and played with some toys on our lap. Angela was at the coffee shop doing lots of homework.

We planned on seeing Uncle James and Aunt Robyn, but Christina turned on me at nap time. Christina was tired and happy to lay down. She did not take a nap however, only quiet time. The tired girl became a cuddle me and limited playing girl.

To get out of the house, I thought Angela, Christina and I could go out for dinner. Christina was uncooperative, even for Angela. Dinner was good, but I had hoped for a better outing.
Friday post Thanksgiving

Today Christina and I went swimming at the YMCA when Angela went shopping and did homework. We had a great time. Christina did wonderful walking and kicking.

I went to the gym this evening and feeling pretty proud of myself.

I am almost done with the update to email everyone. I hope to finish and send that when Christina takes a nap tomorrow.

Well it was a pretty quiet Thanksgiving here. Christina and I played and sang. We did a lot of walking. My back and knees feel it.

We went for a drive to the gas station for our outing today. It wasn't much but gave us the chance to sing in the car and stay out of the wind. I have a stuffy nose and sore throat so it was more for me. And I did not think I would be able to carry everything back while also carrying Christina.

Angela went to visit with family at her aunt's.

We opted for a different dinner menu today. We had steak and mashed potatoes. Christina ate very well. She enjoys the meat juices mixed into her potatoes.

Christina and I walked up and down the hall again after dinner. She took wonderful steps all day. Then it was bath time and getting ready for bed. Angela went for a drive to call a friend while Christina and I did the night time routine.

Another Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. We all have something to be thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. First of all Happy Thanksgiving to everybody.

Christina was ill and missed a week of school but is better now. No it was not the swine flu. She did however miss school. She was very exited to return this week.  While at school she has been doing great. The tears have stopped and she enjoys her time there. Christina uses her kid cart with no problems. She knows that when she goes to the gym she has to work and she will fuss but gets over it quickly. Mary told me that she is driving a motorized car and loves it. She eats a great snack while there most of the time.

At home she is doing well too. We got a wingbo swing and it is great. It is really hard to explain so if you go to wingbo.com you can see the swing. Anyway it is designed to promote belly time and head extension. She does real well in it. She will pull with her arms and push with her legs. It is so great to watch. The other day she was in it and grabbed shapes out of her cookie jar to hand to me. Lately Christina has been grabbing everything, very happy about that. We have also been working on walking in the gait trainer with no prompts. It is hard for her but is getting the hang of it. When we started it was all tears and now there are none.

The eye appointment went pretty well. No new news. Still can not and will not be able to tell us anything until she can tell us what she can see. I am positive that her vision is getting better and will continue to improve with time.

Phenol botox will be coming up soon again, there is no date yet but will be in December or January. I will keep everyone up to date.

Happy T-Day.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!!

Today was a typical Wednesday. The day at work was pretty average with fewer calls than normal.

Angela had a doctor appointment today. Not much new, they still can not do anything to fix or help her leg. Time, time, time. Waiting and hoping sucks and I can just begin to imagine what she is going through. The pain is unbearable for her.

Christina had a good day. She started to get a little bored with mommy I guess. Christina and I walked a lot tonight before and after dinner. Christina really enjoyed it and took wonderful steps. She also ate well for dinner.

Angela went to the coffee shop to do homework and download more pictures onto the flash drive for me. She also met her mom and Harp for a Thanksgiving drink.

Tuesday on a short week

Today went by fast also. I went to the gym after work. That was an experience. I am trying to figure out how long it has been since I went last, and guessing it has been five years at least. I feel good after going. It took awhile to not feel guilty being there. I usually spend my evenings with Christina. In some way it feels like I was selfish and took away daddy time from her.

After the gym it was store time. Ooohh, my favorite. Picked up pediasure and some groceries. It felt like an hour standing in line. And why are stores always so warm. I should have left my jacket in the car.

Now it is time to raid the fridge and find something to eat.

Today went by quickly. I thought about this blog updating thing and figured that the end of the day is probably the best if I try the once a day. So here we go...

I transferred the latest pictures from Angela. I managed to get them sorted and have them queued for upload. For those of you who check the latest pics, most of them should be up by early morning. As I started going through the pics to upload I remembered I better sync the iPod tonight so I don't have to wait in the morning. There is nothing worse than being short on time, plug in the iPod and realize it is going to sync 400+ pictures.

Angela went to the coffee shop to do some homework tonight. Christina and I ate dinner and played. Christina ate very well. We still have issues with the highchair. We being Christina and I, Angela and Christina do not have any troubles at all. All attitude with the little princess.

We of course went for our nightly walk. We only go for about ten minutes, but Christina loves it and it is good for me too. I am planning to continue when the temperature drops. Christina and I both don't mind the cold.

Until next post.
