Say hello to Mr. Bug! It's the wild mans very first crafty project and he is so proud of himself! He calls it his "Buggabugga." So cute. I'm so proud of him. He's been doing really well at his playgroup on Tuesdays. He loves Miss Lizzy and the other kids and it gives me a much needed break. We are on to the letter C next week! Hopefully he continues to thrive there.
Isn't he just adorable??? This is the handknit sweater his Memere' brought back from Ireland for him. It is just a tad too big but really, who cares?! He looks so handsome in it. He loves posing for me so I slipped it on him the other day and we went outside for some photo fun! Some of the pictures I took I'm going to blow up and frame. He's been such a good boy lately. Of course with the cooler weather we are able to be more active outside and we've been walking more. We have some amazing walking paths in the woods behind the property and I totally forgot they were there. I loved to play on them when I was a kid growing up here. Granted much is overgrown but new paths have emerged and it's still just as much fun. He talks up a storm when we are out there. We've also been reading a lot together. He loves his books and doesn't much care what I'm reading to him as long as he can read along with me. He does have his favorites like Dora and Diego but also likes How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? and his Maisy flap book. All good as far as I'm concerned!
No more news on the FIL front. He is back in the hospital and is waiting to see where he is going to go next. No news is good news in his case! We'll probably hear something tonight or tomorrow as to when they are going to move him. He ended up with a private room this time which is a boon to my poor MIL. They have privacy! She can spread out a little and try to be more comfortable.
I finally had my annual visit to the Doc's office this afternoon. All is good. Considering I feel like I'm sliding down the brakedown lane! I have a touch of "wear and tear" on my right knee and some more in the joints of my thumbs from knitting. He wants me to try glucosamine. I also need to get some bloodwork done sometime in the next month for cholesterol and blood glucose. Anyway, apparently I'm in good health with no lumps or bumps or other unpleasantness despite how I've been feeling lately. He was happy that I seem to be losing some weight and encouraged me to continue doing what I've been doing. It's nice to know I can keep eating the baked goods as long as I walk them off!
I hear my little man calling...must run!
Ciao and happy knitting!!
