Rollin rollin rollin...

Everything we do with Skyler now involves rolling him from side to side. No more picking him up under the arms, or just lifting his pelvis to change him or put on clothes. I'll tell you, this is going to get old fast! He is being a pretty good guy about it all but he is still that same old impatient dude that wants what he wants and now.

We picked up a cot and a different mattress to have him lay on in the living room that the lift can fit under. So we don't have to pick him up the wrong way or risk a drop to get him from his chair onto the floor.



This week was very, very long... I hope he gets to feeling better soon. Mama and Pop need a nights sleep.

You know, I wuz just a-thinkin', Sky-Mon is a GOOD LOOKIN' DUDE. Why is it us dads of special boys look like a mile o' bad road while our sons look so damned handsome?? Is it a payment of some sort?? We gotta look like goofs while our kids will get all th' ladies??

an you KNOW the Sky-Mon is gonna get some-- I can hear it already, "man, my back is STIFF today!! It's them $#@%!! POLES in there... Would you massage it for me, Brandi?? Thanks!!"

::cue naughty music::

"mmmm... right there... Mmmm... a lil' lower, if'n you please..."

Jeff here: Since there's not much room for a tree in the living room, strap a few strings of motion-sensitive Christmas lights to Skyler's cot. That'll help make the transfers go easier! I do hope your efforts become easier every day. Our best to you all.
