Here we are mid week already, sometimes I can't believe how time flies by so fast. I thought you might need a bit of a Little Buddy fix as today is all about Little Buddy. He has a bit of a cold, as does everyone in his classroom. Just after I dropped him off at school, and made it to my first patient, I got a call from the school saying he had a fever and was ill. He wasn't that ill when I dropped him off so how how much more ill he could have gotten in the 15 minutes I was gone remains in question. So I packed up and returned to the school to pick him up. I think they might be alarmists as he had a sweatshirt on with his hood up, when I arrived, no wonder they thought he had a slight fever. Regardless I packed him up, called the doctor, and now we are home for the morning. He is acting pretty happy but I will take him into the doctor just to be sure he does not have an ear infection. I had to cancel my entire day of work to get him to the doctor for the only appointment they had available at 1:30. Ah, you forget about these things when you have older kids.
Little Buddy can often be found sitting on his potty fully dressed reading books. He loves that potty, but not for the reasons it is designed for.
He also has some big news. He is starting to walk with these super cool and colorful quad canes. He makes it quite far in physical therapy with them, at home he tires of them easily. But he can do it all by himself. These are too tall and heavy for him, yet he manages them pretty well. We are deciding whether to order him his own set or go right to forearm crutches, the kind that wrap around your forearm and have a handle for you hand. The crutches are more advanced and harder so we are still weighing out all of the options.
He can even get down from them all by himself.
After the doctor appointment, medication pick up and after Little Buddy goes down for his nap I plan to work on this. I am on the border now and I can't wait to see it all finished. This weekend I was on a mission to get every square done. I crocheted so much I gave myself a sore where the yarn wrapped around my left index finger. I crocheted every minute of nap time, and all evening long. Every time Little Buddy was dawdling at mealtime I picked this up and worked on it. When his Aunt came over to play with him on Sunday, this was in my hands. I finished the last square on Monday and started the border last night. This baby has to get done as I have a baby blanket to start for my husband's nephew and his wife, who are expecting their first baby.
Hope you are having a great week and enjoyed your Little Buddy fix.
