So is Brenna.
My aunt watched Brenna this morning so I could run some errands and go grocery shopping with just Connor. Connor is an amazing shopper. I would shop with 10 Connors. Brenna? Not so much. And it was also nice to give me some 1-on-1 time with my boy. We checked out the fish at Meijer, and he was in heaven :)
This week has been so off from our usual "routine" (hence the lack of blogging.) We stayed out at my in-laws' farm Monday through Wednesday while work was being done on our house. Though the packing up was stressful - trying to make sure we had everything we needed for both kids! - actually being out there for two days was almost like a little vacation! Brenna even took a really long nap one day, and Connor and I got to play outside together with no worries of housework or photo editing. Evan's sister is home from college, and with the way his parents' work schedules are, there was at least one other person around most of the day, which made for stimulating adult conversation!

Brenna's skin is back to normal again with the antibiotic treatment, so hopefully it stays that way! Both this infection and her first staph infection came a few days after she got her vaccinations, so we're also wondering if there's a correlation there now. We might have to try some different steps with the next round of shots to kill off any bacteria...
Brenna had a bunch of appointments this week. She got her ears cleaned out, which we noticed makes a big difference in her hearing and her "talking." She also saw her occupational therapist, who created this handy little homemade "splint" for her hands.
Brenna typically keeps her fists clenched with her thumb in between her first two fingers, so we're working on building the habit of putting her fingers in a more "normal" position, in addition to opening more.
We have a busy weekend ahead, with a graduation ceremony to attend, cookout with neighbors, photo session and of course family downtime - all of which I am really looking forward to! :)
