Greetings from Tahoe

We drove up to Tahoe yesterday for another long weekend. Gotta love N and his ability to work remote. The driveway still had a good amount of snow on it from the last time we were up. N had shoveled a pathway and enough room to park the Yukon just off the street, but we came up this weekend with Bree, Jon, and Logan so we had to fit two cars in the driveway. Since the snow was so compacted from the warmer weather and melting down a bit during the day it took some serious muscle, but the guys got it done. Then N spent the rest of the night into the wee hours doing a work maintenance.

Today was a mellow day around the cabin. Hit the store for some groceries and have just been hanging out. My right wrist has been bothering me a bit even though I keep it in the new wrist guard/brace the doc ordered for me. This one basically keeps my right thumb immobile since the tendon running down my thumb is the culprit. Little hard to do stuff such as changing diapers and getting Molly into feeding positions, but I'm really hoping I don't have to get a hard cast so I'm keeping it on as much as possible. Molly actually seems pretty interested in all the velcro straps. Too bad her diapers also like getting stuck to those same straps.

Molly still loves to stand, but when I can get her to sit she can hold herself upright for a minute or two. If her head goes forward she tends to do an immediate face plant since such a large percentage of her weight is in her noggin. She seems to be doing pretty good balancing herself from side to side, but when she starts going backwards she'll get distracted with her feet and forget to balance herself. Also, when she's standing she tends to plant her feet (heel down and not just on tippy toes). When she keeps her feet to close together she'll be a bit wobbly, but if she gets them shoulder width apart she's pretty solid. She's also now putting all of her weight on one foot and moving the other foot forward and sometimes backwards. I feel for the dogs when she figures out how to get mobile.

You forgot to mention the part where Jon and I got to witness Molly eating some rice cereal for dinner and smooshing most of it all over her face.... what great entertainment!! :-P
