Should Write More But Have Ungodly Amounts of Reading to Do.

So I will post pictures of Cricket instead.

Here we are readying him for his life of education. I had my "fake" graduation a few weekends ago. Fake because I still have 20 credits to go. Every credit more takes a little bit more of soul, so I guess it was good to pseudo-celebrate while I still own part of my soul before the nursing school takes it all. The Cricket was very good at a full day's worth of festivities, therefore he got to wear the hat. Cricket: Pre-leg break, shopping for bread with me on a cool Saturday morning. I almost can't even remember these Halcyon days of walking. By himself.

Cricket's cast is off. Which I'd say should be a resounding "THANK GOD" but he's still not walking on it. He is holding his leg up, but crawling everywhere. He will pull himself up to standing, but will not stand on the leg. After three set of x-rays from his very own grandfather and nary a fracture to be seen, I'm flummoxed. There was one spot where there was maybe a fracture. The grandfather doctor says to not push it. Maybe there's a break that we can't see (?!?!?) and he's protecting it. I just want walking/running Cricket back. Here is the kid moments before his leg broke:
I post this pic for Chris especially. Another reason I'd like my kid to start walking again is that he was so into the Swiffer. I need the help around the house. It's time for him to start earning his bread (or cheese as the case may be) again.

Finally, Cricket says goodnight. He and I both hope that I will find time to blog again in earnest soon. I have so many things to say, my head hurts with the sheer multitude of things I'd like to be blogging about it. Keep fingers crossed that the Cricket returns to walking soon.

Oh My God Katie, he is so adorably cute and so grown up. Hope the waling comes back soon. I'm sure it will.

Wow!!! Katie- What a precious little boy he is! he's getting a VERY boyish look now-looking very grown up.

Its weird- I've been reading your blog since your TTC days (and since read all the archives) and I do not even know you- there is that as well- but it really does seem like JUST YESTERDAY you were talking about betas and such.

He's awesome.

And, adapting to a smaller place is pretty easy- after about 2 months of being completely unpacked and set up- you almost forget what it was like to be in a larger place. (I am giving myself a little encouragment here- as I will be living in a smaller place come August.)

I am glad you posted!

Take care now!
