Good Things

In no particular order, some thing that are making me happy:

  1. The Cure Pity website brought to my attention by Felicity. If it doesn’t make you smile at least a little then you might want to have your pulse checked.
  2. Winning this pair of earrings from Amy‘s giveaway–her sister made them and they are delicate and beautiful. And purple and gold, which is a big deal in my neck of the woods. My camera isn’t doing them justice, but they are beautiful and only seven dollars if you wanted to buy a pair. Go check out her site–also, 30% of her profits go directly to charity work in Africa so you can look good and feel good.
  3. This post on Flotsam Blog–mostly because we are ob-sessed with Signing Time over here.
  4. This song by Cowboy Mouth–my favorite line being, “if you do it at all, then you oughta do it right.” So true.
  5. We’re headed to Plano next weekend to learn some new ABR exercises for Charlie. These exercises have been so good for him I’m literally dying to go learn some new ones.
  6. My brother and his fiancee are getting a puppy–she looks like a doll and I get to meet her this weekend.
  7. So far so good on the Phenobarb wean. Really, he’s probably still got plenty of it in his system, so this isn’t the biggest deal, but I like to look on the positive.
  8. Charlie met another goal in physical therapy–sitting (no prop) for twenty seconds. Next up: thirty seconds!
  9. Charlie’s dancing:

Now go up there, click on one of those videos and rock out a little–it’s the weekend!

  1. Ok, so the Cure Pity thing made me cry like a baby…I'll be posting that on my blog soon. Great stuff.

    And you better keep a close eye on Charlie, I'm thinking about flying down there and stealing him. That video made my day.

  3. I love the video of Charlie tonight! ADORABLE!

  4. Oh, Katy!!!! That video of Charlie is AWESOME!!!

    Go, Charlie! Boom Boom Pow!!

  5. Oh, yeah – thanks for the Shout Out, too!!! :)

  6. I loved the video!!! What a happy guy you have!!

    I love that baby!!!
    Go Charlie Go!!

  8. Hi Katy, so stinkin' cute, he is!!!!!!! You know Faith has a little friend at therapy who had surgery this summer at Duke for her eyes and I saw her for the first time a couple of months ago and I was shocked by the improvement! It was really great! She had a second surgery just recently but I haven't seen her yet. She had a really bad case of strabismus but the surgery was awesome! They are discussing surgery for the same things for Faith in the begining of the yr, primarily for her rt eye. Anyway, Charlie is a doll!

    Heartfelt thanks for the video! Sooo many good things to see there.


    (ps I saw Buster,too.)

  10. sitting on the mood swing at the playground says:

    Charlie is adorable! When the music started Bug ran over to watch the dance.

  11. Candace–Our doc is against surgery at this point. He says that Charlie's vision is still in development, so he doesn't want to mess with it. We will, of course, discuss the eye crossing thing with him in December, but it's actually been getting better, so it might be a passing thing.

  12. I love your video of Charlie! His big smile is the best! :)

  13. MeghatronsMom says:

    That is so cute! He is so handsome & has the best smile & giggle!

    We too are avoiding surgery. We have been patching & glasses for several years. They are afraid to over correct & she will go from cross-eyed to fish-eyed (eyes looking out to sides instead).

    He is doing amazing!

  14. LMAO @ "Wait–here's his favorite part…" great taste in music, Charlie–and great dance moves!

    Also–how cute is that puppy??

  15. oh, katy… he looks SO GREAT in that video!! what a stander! sorry to be missing you in plano. i haven't been in touch with the abr center lately, but i think i remember that only 3 visits are required in the second year and this month doesn't work for travel for us.
