All right, Mr. Demille, I'm ready for my close-up.
Henry now seems to be officially over his cold. He has slept through the night again the past couple of nights. Which I appreciate since this week has been down-right busy.
Monday: Henry's 6 month check-up & shots. He is now 20lbs and is in the top percentage of length and weight. His head circumference is off the chart at 47cm. His eyes, teeth, ears are all fine and he's been given the ok to try most any food except for egg whites, nuts and honey. But still stick to purees for the next month.
Tuesday: We ran errands and chilled out in the coffee-shop.
Wednesday: Basement was torn apart. Here's the before and after photos:
The work should be completed by tomorrow at 5pm. We walked down to the beaches to get away from the noisy jack-hammering. It was lovely and sunny and around 5 degrees. We had lunch down there which was a nice change.
The workmen discovered that the floor in S's basement office was raised not because it was insulated, but because water had previously been seeping in. The genius solution employed by the previous owners/workmen was to drill holes in the concrete so that the water would drain out. But as was explained to me and should be obvious nevertheless, water can just as easily come right back up. So they found mould, took it away, and are fixing the problem by sealing up the floor, installing drain pipes and a sump pump. There is a fine layer of dust over the whole basement and main floor. Nothing like cement dust to jump-start that spring clean!
Thursday: More avoiding of the workmen in the morning. And then we are going to the daycare in the afternoon for orientation.
Friday: We go back to the doctor's office to get my ultrasound results. I may have a hernia from the c-section. We'll find out, all this and more! Stay tuned...
