Big D and Me

Trick or treat went well last night, according to the huge orange bucket of candy sat in my kitchen this morning. Jack didn't quite grasp the notion of thanking people for his sweets though. One woman said "have a great evening' and he replied "you're welcome!" He tried, bless him.
Jack followed one boy around who was dressed in an American Football outfit and it was like idol worship. Every time we saw this boy Jack would swoon "I want a football helmet and a big t-shirt just like him". When I told him he could only ask Santa for ONE present - football helmet and big t-shirt or roller skates, he looked much perplexed. I think he'll work on that conundrum for a while.

Danny hated his Tiger hood and refused to wear it. And blew raspberries at everyone. He had his 9-month docs appointment today and here are his stats:
Weight = 25.8 lbs
Height = 30.5"
So still in the 97th percentile for both height and weight. Both kids got their regular flu vaccine but they are out of H1N1 for now.

I have a couple of things going on with me...

First, I have to go to a doctor because I'm having issues with my right hand. It won't stop going into the orange bucket! Only kidding. I am having real trouble though. Really really painful trouble that's waking me up at 3am and scaring the life out of me. I was terrified of aneurysms or thinking I was about to have a stroke but I'm thinking now that it might be carpel tunnel. Blimey it's painful. So painful I can't put my contact lenses in or even brush my teeth when I first get up. More on that front after I see the doc I suppose.

Second - NaBloPoMo starts on Sunday! Every year in November I do a blog posting every day of the month. 30 blogs in 30 days. Please stay with me and read them. Even better, please comment. I feel very unloved when no one comments. I'll try not to harp on about my dicky hand I promise.

I've been terrible about commenting lately, but I'll be reading. I'm going to attempt NaBloPoMo as well, I think for the third year in a row. We'll see how it goes.

I hope you get the hand thing figured out soon - I cannot imagine what a literal and figurative pain that must be.

good luck with the NaBloPoMo thingy. I tried it last year but almost went insane. Kids' halloween costumes were great.
sorry about the 'dicky' hand tho'. Sounds painful but hopefully not too serious. tho' carpal tunnel isn't fun.
take care.

Ugh, if it is carpal tunnel that is a B$%#@! I had it when I was pregnant with David and it was awful. I had to sleep sitting up because I woke up every 30 minutes writhing in pain. But there's treatment, so hopefully they can help you.

Those costumes are so cute! I think Danny might officially be bigger than David. He was 25 pounds 3 ounces at his 18 month check a couple weeks ago. Hilarious that chunker!

Hi Kelsey, I'll read yours too. Doc said most probably carpel tunnel but I bought a marvelous wrist thing and it works wonders!
Hello there Clippy, Yeah, I'm not feeling too creative right now so might just bomb. Did your grandson get to dress up?
Hi Em, Hopefully you had a great time trick or treating tonight (Sat). I just read your comment on Kelsey's blog and nearly fell off my chair when you said you think you've all had H1N1!
