Our Teddy Bear's Journey

Theodore was born with renal failure. This is his story.

What we’ve been up to lately

on May 19, 2014

I’m not great at pairing pictures with blog entries – I do things in batches, including uploading pictures.

So here’s some of what Teddy’s been up to recently.

Beep Beeps
This was after our most recent clinic visit. We were ready to go, but as we were walking through the waiting room to head out, he noticed BEEP BEEPS was on the TV!! (Cars) (He’s a bit, um, obsessed.) (Notably, his second favorite movie is Fast and the Furious, just the beginning scenes with the racing.)

Eating Marshmallows
In a Never-To-Be-Repeated event, Teddy swallowed marshmallows on purpose.

Tornado
He had his first tornado alarm. Not really his first alarm, but I honestly don’t remember actually heading to the basement with him ever before. We really didn’t need to head down, but the weather guy said there were rotations over Clive (a suburb to the west) and we decided that since all 3 kids were asleep at that time, heading down sooner rather than later was prudent.

Reading
Wally read him stories. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wally’s also been rocking him at naptime (with limited success), at his request.

Cupboard
Crawling into cupboards at Genna’s speech therapy.

Fabric
I bought this fabric to make a shirt. He stole it. Pre-shirt-ified.

Shirt
This is after I literally fought him for the fabric, which he kept pulling off my work table, to get the shirt made.

Soup
NerNer (mater) soup? Yes, please. No, he didn’t eat it. I was hopeful, though.

Chickens
I try to keep Teddy away from our chickens, since they have some specific diseases that transplant patients can get, but Genna showed him how to feed them grass through the hardware cloth on their enclosure.

Play
Of course this is my favorite part of the play structure in our yard!! Unfortunately, he can’t get up there by himself (he’s afraid of the ladder), and he can’t get down (he’s afraid of the slide).

Sleeping
He used to sleep like this ALL THE TIME. Head thrown back in the wrap or carrier, and resisting all attempts to move him to a more comfortable-looking position. And here he is, at Wally’s music studio’s spring recital, doing it again.

Shirt
Some awesome family friends sent us this Tshirt for Mr Cars Obsessed. ๐Ÿ™‚
