Gannon had his very first day of physical therapy! We’ve got a long to do list including fitting him for orthotic inserts, braces, massaging/stretching his neck to correct some torticollis, encouraging him to walk up and down the stairs, and walk on uneven surfaces! We are so excited to have Lisa on our team – she came highly recommended by several of our friends and specializes in pediatrics. We will be seeing her on Wednesdays!
We got to see Jasper and Kayla today! Jasper is getting so big and growing so fast! The boys just adore him! Maybe a little too much…. we are working on being gentle to Jasper!
Carver is obsessed with puzzles so we got Gannon to join in on the fun! This good behavior lasted longer enough to get one whole picture.
Carver is OBSESSED with tools and fixing! Here he is helping Craig fix the lawn mower, he steals daddy’s wrenches and tools all the time. He wants SNAP ON tools, not “yucky” tools. Here he brought his tools to one of Gannon’s appointments and is fixing on the chairs in the lobby ?
I had to stay late from work to keep up on my BLS (basic life support) CPR certification. Did you know when I renew my BLS course it is all online? The mannequins are hooked up to the computer and it can tell if we are going too fast, too slow, giving good breaths etc. There is a lab I go to in the hospital that is open any time to test out! Of course we have more in depth courses as well in person but the Basic Life Support is all virtual! Juju
We sure do love uncle Karl! Here he is teaching Carver about writing with with a quill and ink! Karl and Carver are “garden partners” and Carver helps him weed and tend the garden. Karl sends Carver pictures of how the garden is growing, Carver is so proud and just loves being besties with uncle Karl!
We absolutely love our pool! It’s been a great purchase and I think Craig and I enjoy it even more than the boys do! We both got a nasty sunburn on Sunday!
COVID is really hitting close to home – so close in fact I had to cancel on one of the most important events of the year – Regan’s bachelorette party ? I’m so so bummed but I just can’t accept the risks of exposing my mom and Gannon. Gannon had RSV in January and we were in and out of the doctor the entire month. If mom or any of us get COVID we have to postpone ALL appointments in the next month – including the so so important genetics appointment at the end of the month. There is such an uptake of the virus in northeast Iowa too. I’m so so sad, of course Regan understands but I feel like I’ve let everyone down and I’m #worldsworstbridesmaid
So no big plans for the 4th, we will be staying home and staying safe. Now is the most important time to play it safe, I thought the summer heat would help slow the spread but no luck 🙁
Anyway, I’m off to bed! Thanks for reading friends!
