Thursday appointments

Today Cainan was measured for his thumb splints. He didn't really like that. It didn't hurt him at all, but he is tired of people in nurses uniforms messing with him. It only took about 10 minutes, and they said the braces would be in around 1 week from now. By then, at least, his arm splints will be off and he can move his arms around. Poor little guy. Can't catch a break. But we need to get the thumbs straightened out because he just doesn't use them and OT needs him to have the stents for his therapy so he can start to use a pincer grasp.

That was his only appointment today and now he is TRULY done for the week. Arlington had a dentist appointment this afternoon. We picked her up from pre-K at 11:30 then took her to lunch (just she and I and her Grammy) at her favorite restaurant - Johnny Rockets. This is a 50's style restaurant where the wait staff dances to 50's music and they have a juke box. The best part - they give her a balloon. :P After lunch we took her to the library so she could pick some new books and we stayed and read there for a little while, then went on to the dentist. The dentist appointment went fine. Arlington LOVES going to the dentist. I don't mean that sarcastically - she actually asks to go. It is a children's dentistry and the dentist is a nice woman and all the staff is terrific. They play first and she gets to pick things out of the prize box, etc. And her teeth are great - no problems!

This evening we just played with the kids. Cainan was in a great mood - really starting to come alive. Now that he is healed pretty much 100% he is more playful. He was having a great time tonight and it was nice to see. He and Finley are playing better and better together every day. And Arlington continues to be the queen of them all!
Here are some pictures from today

Looks to me as though Cainan has taken to Papa, just like the girls. I'm not surprised, he's a pretty terrific guy. Nanny
