Work is over for the YEAR. Woot! Today was my last day of work for the year. How excitingggggg! Ethan went to the Nanny House for 1/2 day today so I could bring Evie to the vet and wrap up some work. Check out his smile from the other day as he wished Grandpa a Happy Birthday!
Ethan can officially sit up by himself. He does wobble and tip over but he can sit for awhile alone. He is also starting to catch himself with his hand when he starts to tip. Such a big boy!!
The Nanny said he loves to sit and stand for long periods of time and that she thinks he will walk early. He does get into crawling position when you put him on the floor but then he just flattens out his legs and sometimes pulls himself a little bit with his arms.
Yep, I put this Christmas tree headband on him and he didn't mind. haha
Oh here he is sucking on his big toe. So funny. He does it while I'm trying to change his diaper though so I have to wait for him to stop so I can get the dang thing on. haha
Our girl Evie has been limping a little bit after her pack walks. On her pack walks, she is off leash and running around. The walkers say she "runs like a maniac" and "runs full throttle" so I know she is losing her mind out there. She comes home and is worn out though. She is almost 9 and has that repaired leg. I think that plus overdoing it makes her ache. However, the dog walker mentioned that she COULD have a partial tear in her non-surgery leg. Oy. We can't handle another leg surgery in terms of the care, recovery, and the cost! I was praying it wasn't that as I made an appt for the Vet.
Turns out the Vet didn't feel anything strange in her left leg. She did feel that Evie had tenderness in her right leg(the surgery leg). She thinks that the combo of being 9, being a few pounds overweight, and overdoing it is making her limp. She gave us some Rimadyl(aka Dog Ibruprofen) and told us to rest Evie. Rest her as she is heading to camp for a week while we're away AND from her pack walks. Ahhhh sort of hard to do.
She rested after the Vet today since she wore herself out whining and being anxious there. We cancelled her walks for the last week of Dec and gave instructions to keep her semi-calm at camp. We want her to feel better soon!
