So we had an entire week of school...

and it kinda sucked. We made it though. Only one new thing this week. Jack now wears theratogs to help his hip and knee alignment. His left leg is an itsy bitsy bit shorter than the right, also a little bitty bit weaker. So when he walks, his knee turns out a little tiny bit. We put the theratogs on him a little crookedy toward his left side, and cover his knees so he can walk straighter, and more aligned. I don't have a pic of him wearing them yet, but until I do, you can go see some on Miss Braska's blog to see what they look like. It's the blue stretchy thing Miss B is wearing around her jeans. Kind of a pain in the patootie, but if it helps our little man, we gotta go for it.

In other Jackson news, he's all caught up with his shots as of today. Yeah, he was behind. Who knew? Not me, apparently. I got a call from the school nurse saying his records weren't complete, so I called the ped who agreed. He got 2 shots, and didn't cry. The nurse said he was the best behaved 3 yr old she'd had all day. What a sweetie. After the first shot, he signed "all done". The nurse said, "no, one more" and he let her turn him around, give another shot, and signed "all done" again. This time she laughed and signed it back. I have never had a bad experience out in public, dealing with people, with this boy. How I love him.

Awwww, I can't believe he didn't cry for the shots. What a brave big boy. Yeah, I'd be signing all done, too. No fun!
