In Which We Have A Very Busy Day

What a busy day today!

Jeremy had physical therapy at 8:15 this morning, so we didn't really sleep in like we normally do on Wednesdays. Since this will be his usual time from now on for PT, I guess I'd better get used to it! After I picked him up from PT and his subsequent gym workout, I drove him down to the post, dropped him off for an appointment, and then Connor and I went to the little guy's physical therapy. Connor didn't really feel like doing a whole lot of work today; he tried every trick in the book to get out of rolling a ball back and forth, which is what we were trying. First he tried to get out of it by snuggling. When that didn't work, he moved on to signing various excuses or distractions to us. "No! Away! Tired. Sad. Don't like ball. Want Daddy. Want eat. Want kitty." He was certainly getting his point across and communicating, which was nice. It's been a while since I've seen such clear and obvious signing from him-- probably not since before he started having real trouble with his seizures again. It's good that he's signing more because it tells me he's feeling better.

While we acknowledged his signs, we made him roll the ball anyway, because we are evil like that.

After Connor's PT we swung by and picked Jeremy up, and then we headed to the house for some lunch and to let Connor have a nap before we met with Kat Speyer, the photographer whose family photo shoot giveaway we won. I was totally completely psyched to be meeting her, and she turns out to be just as awesome in person as she seems online. We spent a while talking about locations, looking at photo album options (there are so many to drool over, which is what I'm doing right now in addition to typing this and petting the cat), and then moved on to swapping stories about our crazy cats and various other topics we had in common. Because I never shut up once I get started talking (seriously, if you think my blog posts are long try having a conversation with me sometime) we ended up taking up over three hours of her time. This probably qualifies her for sainthood, especially since Connor informed her several times that he "didn't like her" and she should "go away." Manners are not his strong point, and he was kind of bored.

Anyway we came away from the meeting even more excited about the photo shoot, which will probably be happening sooner rather than later provided the weather cooperates. We can't wait!

The more I get to know Connor, the more I love the little guy!

Now I must Go! Away! Tired! Also: I don't like the ball!

You probably selected a backdrop already, but just to plug an outdoor setting again....I can envision the 3 of you with the Sound and the penninsula behind you (from Steilacoom). Or, the opposite direction, Mt. Ranier.
