We got the computer back from the shop again. While I still don't totally trust that we are totally fixed I am hopeful. At the very least here is a recent pic to whet your appetite for things to come.
The weather is slowly starting to improve here in Seattle and my condition is improving to the point where I need to be walking more to increase my strength. On a recent family jaunt we brought Junie to a local playground a few blocks from our house (and conveniently located on the way home from the coffee-shop). We put her on the swings and it was one of those magical moments that you savor as parent. Watching her face go from confusion to panic to elation was beautiful! We have taken her back a few times since then. She get sooooooo excited when she sees the swing-set. She starts bouncing up and down in her stroller and going "Oo, oo, oo!" like a little monkey. Once we get her in the swing she is all smiles. She tries to talk to anyone in eyeshot, especially the baby in the swing next to her, to tell them about this awesome new thing she has discovered. I'm sure she can't wait to tell you too!
