The Week of Hand Me Downs And An Update

The women in my moms’ groups are generous with the hand me downs. Charlie has received many of them during this past week.


This is the stroller liner given to Charlie from Judy at Laughing, Living, Weeping. Charlie likes the neck support in that position above her head. It fits Charlie well and is excellent support for the long stroller rides. We tested it out Saturday during a hike.


Charlie received this sand box over the weekend. Initially, she had a tough time with the feel of sand. But, she loves it now that she is able to tolerate the texture.


Today, Charlie got her car. So far, she has only figured out how to make it go backwards.

Thank you to the women who have passed these toys and the ride on toys to Charlie. They help further her skill set and growth.

With the holiday, the warm weather, and the upcoming March for Babies, our schedule has been fuller than usual (not a lot of time for writing). For those of you interested in the ongoing details of our story:

Charlie continues to be under observation for the changes with her muscle tightness. An appointment has been scheduled with the developmental pediatrician to discuss the matter further. It is most likely due to a growth spurt.

Also, she has an appointment with the pediatrician to check the fluid in her ears this week. Tubes may be a consideration in the future.

Additionally, the area’s March For Babies is getting closer and closer. I am happy to report that Team Charlie has made goal. However, if you’d like to help blow it out of the water you can do so by donating at our team page.

Other than all of that, we keep plugging along.
