7/27, our first walk in the stroller after surgery. Teddy was ok sitting up for a bit, but got more uncomfortable as we went. We went outside for a bit in the courtyard.
We saw a cardinal.
I finished a sock. It’s How’s Moving Castle, since I just finished the book (which is good).
7/29 This was how he spent most of his mornings. Kind of propped up, surrounded by toys. We also read and played little games, or sometimes he sat next to me and played while I knitted.
Look at my big belly.
7/31, talking on the phone. Or, you know, the TV remote/nurse call device.
This was also the day he realized he could sleep face down in mama’s lap again. That’s one of his preferred ways of sleeping, and he’s been afraid to try it.
And then he played on his belly. Normally, he plays flat on his belly, but he’s tucked his legs up to take some pressure of his incision and kidney.
Blowing bubbles in mama’s coffee.
8/1, we actually got out for a walk during the day, and watched the construction crews.
He’s telling me a big story. In his native language.
Here he switches to English and sign language to tell me Trains! They’re really trucks and cranes and other construction equipment, but just as every animal is a bird in Teddy World, every vehicle is a Train.
