Battered Baby

Poor Rosemarie is so accident prone. Mostly it is due to falling or tripping and hitting her head on something. It doesn't slow her down long, but it looks like we beat her!

Today she looked truly awful. She had bruises in various shades of healing on her forehead and cheek, from falls over the last week and half or so. She had a scrape on the left side of her nose from tripping on the dock while we were fishing yesterday. And she had several scrapes on her nose, chin, temples, etc. from falling against the cabinet door (that she'd opened) this morning. And of course she went out in public to Church like this!

Birthdays/Father's Day

Today was my family's annual There are Too Many Birthdays in June party. We celebrated Father's Day for the fathers present (Bob and Dad) and celebrated my brother Stephen's 23rd birthday (the 19th), Roger's 3rd birthday (also the 19th) and Rosie's first birthday (the 20th). Since 5 out of 8 people present were being given gifts, and since the gift buyers had gone a little overboard, it seemed a bit like Christmas. Here's some pics:

Rosie LOVED the packages.

Roger being serious.

Here's Bob, playing with "Roger's" Transformer.

Rosie liked her cake.

Greg posted on the WMB

I'm sure you all care. : ) But I was thrilled earlier this week (on Tuesday) when Greg ex-Wiggle Page posted for the first time since late November. It was just an answer to a question. Apparently a boardie had received a e-mail stating that it was from Greg's mum, and she was asking for her physical address. She was posting on the board to find out if this was legitimate. Apparently it was -- Greg, with the help of his parents, is answering every letter of sympathy and good wishes that he received after the onset of the illness. With some people they didn't have a physical address, but had an e-mail address, so they contacted them.

No, we didn't send a get well card. I actually didn't figure that he'd see it. Plus, that would have meant going to a store or something.

Anyway, today he finally posted an update. He's had some improvement, but not as much as they'd hoped. They're now trying medications instead of just changes to diet and daily routine. He's been told it will be 2-4 years before he approaches "normal" again. So no new solo work anytime soon. : (

Latest Rogerism

While Bob was getting him into his pajamas Roger said, "When I say "Ta da" I mean "Ta Daaaa!!"

No Screwdrivers.

Roger, after just coming into the house: I came in not to get a screwdriver.
Me: Oh?
R: Yes, because I want a screwdriver. I am going to take off daddy's old tires and put on new tires. I am going to take off the Saturn tires and put on truck tires!
Me: Do you have truck tires?
R: No, but daddy does.

Then he went to get a screwdriver.

She's off!

I meant to blog this earlier this week, but didn't get to it. Rosie started walking this weekend! Last Thursday she took her first steps that I'd seen, and on Sunday really struck out, taking several steps at a time. She's been practicing ever since, and is now walking more and more. Where did my baby go???
