11 Months, 2 Weeks, 6 Days

I think the days of keeping Henry home with me and actually getting any work done are quickly drawing to a close. I called the Dr. this morning and she said to feed Henry frequent small meals and see how he did. I followed her advice and he kept everything down (so far at least, we're hoping to make it through the night). Other than the fear of more gross laundry and emergency baths, Henry's day was great. So, i think he'll go back to Brenda's tomorrow.

We on the other hand, are not doing so well. The buyers for our condo backed out this morning. The contract was in the review period so they're able to back-out with little fanfare. Now we're essentially back at square one. Our Realtor is checking with the other couple that came for a second showing last weekend to see if they are still interested. I think we're hopeful everything will work out but clearly it's not going to go as smoothly as we thought.

In other news Henry has been absolutely set on pulling-up for the last few days. He still needs to feel that you're there before he really goes for it but today while i was on a conference call things suddenly got a little quiet. I turned around and Henry had scooched right in front of the coffee table and was in the position his PT is teaching him to use when he pulls up-- on one knee with the other foot flat on the ground. I went over and helped him a little and off he was. He happily stands for 15-20 minutes at a time and as soon as he falls he just gets mad that now he has to get back up again. Here's a hard-fought picture of the action!

Great picture. I'm glad to see the PT is helping. It's great to be proactive, the fun is just about to begin:)

Henry looks like a kid now! He's getting so big! Sorry to hear about the sale falling through. Better now than at the settlement table. Anyway, another will come along soon. Love to you all.
