A Busy Week

I hope everyone is surviving this cold blast. In Washington, it is unseasonably warm but (as expected) very wet.

This week we had a check up with the rehab med doc to see how Darsie's Botox injections were performing. The muscles are all loose (yay!) but because of their memory, they are still pulling her foot inwards. So, he wants our PT to proceed with serial casting. We had good luck with the serial casting during the last round of Botox, but we still have to decide if we want to do it again. It definitely complicates life for all of us. However, I do want to take 100% advantage of the Botox.

Bert turned two months! Isn't it amazing how fast time flies? He is such a BOY, too. I look at photos of other babies the same age and he just seems older. I was reading a blog post about a family that got stuck at someone's house due to a snow storm and they had to put her in a size 3 diaper (same age as Bert by a few days) and I just laughed. Bert is officially in size 3 diapers. I don't know if it is because he is a big boy (appointment next week) or just because he is a big-time blower-out of diapers.

Jeff turned 33! We spread his birthday celebration from morning 'til night and I have a special adventure planned on Saturday. As well, we have a birthday dinner with his family on Sunday. Nothing like a week long celebration, right? I think we all deserve it.

And last, Bert has now started rolling from tummy to back! My baby really is growing up!

All remains well with Elise and me, too. Just nothing new to report!

Glad to hear the good progress with Darsie. And Bert is just growing up too fast. Time just flies!

I can't believe Bert is in Size 3 already! AJU6 just moved to the Kirkland 1-2s last week and he is 6 weeks old..

What a big boy!! My 2 year old just recently hit size 4 in diapers. I am glad things are going well for you!!

they grow up so fast. Charlie's in four diapers and we usually go up size because of the size of his bladder, not his body size--he's still a tiny one.

glad to hear everything is going well with all of you and the botox is working for darsie. As for the serial casting I can sympathize. I had it done when i was younger and it does make everything more complicated. I hated it and i was miserable but it did help. I would seriously consider doing it again for Darsie's sake.
