Changes Come

Hey Everyone - We signed on our newish house yesterday, it's official! I will try to post some pictures later today. I'm very excited about our sunroom! And kitchen! And Backyard! Anyone wanna come and help with the cosmectic projects? Dad?

G reinjured his foot two days ago or so. He was extremely unhappy and would not put any weight on it. He is improving rapidly again and I have hopes that he is back to using it regularly over the weekend.

Right now the Camera is on the charger but be on the look out!

Here are Mark and G Checking out a field full of REAL free range chickens. The netting protects the birds from preditors and avian diseases.

Super noisy bunch of birds... that make some really great eggs.

Hard Fall

Well - I'm not proud of this one...

On Saturday we went to Home Depot to scout out remodeling costs. I let Grady climb up on one of their step ladders. Up... Down. Then he wanted to go up again... I reluctantly let him and turned to speak to Mark. The next thing I know Grady was a strange little heap on the floor. He was deciding if he could get up, and whether or not to cry.

His head was fine, thank goodness. The crying started soon enough and we were all very distressed. After we had him calmed down mostly, and had wandered to the garden section the store played an anouncement for all the neglegent parents about how you should watch you child and strap them in the cart and never let them climb the ladders. BTW thanks management... that made me feel really, really stupid.

Anyway we went to Urgent Care and Grady had his first Xray. He sprained his ankle and likely bruised up the tissue between all his undeveloped ankle bones really bad. He is getting around crawling and he is a bit extra needy. I still think he is darned coordinated and athletic, a great climber and very brave... I just shouldn't have looked away. Thems the breaks.
