Tonight as I sat down to fold laundry G walked out. It was after 10pm so he was supposed to be in bed, but then he said "Can I help you with that?" So I said sure. He helped me fold the towels and when M walked out moments later he threw her the washcloths to fold.

When G came across a particularly stained towel he told me "Oxyclean can help this."

"Ok, maybe I'll try that." I replied.

M finished the stack and automatically took it to the bathroom. G, took the kitchen towels to the basket in the kitchen.

Now they are back in their room with the light off, and I'm smiling.

New Do

G asked for a new haircut today. Rather, I wanted to cut it and he wanted it short in front.

Total Communication

G is great.

He had to give a talk on Sunday but we had lost the slip that said what it should be on. Last week was school registration and we were watching a friend's daughter because she had to work the registration. So I'm glad the only thing that got lost was that slip of paper. Anyway, when Sunday morning came and we still hadn't found out what he should talk on I was worried. As primary was starting I asked the president what the topic was and she told me. I ran off to get a pencil and paper and wrote him out a talk. When it was his turn he stood up at the podium and I walked up with his talk. I pointed to each word to help him pace. He stood up straight and signed and spoke it great.

Yesterday at school he told his principal "I can speak and sign at the same time. I can do both."

Geoff is great.

It's a good idea because it's a Joke

On Monday I took G in to Shands for a marathon of tests. Scheduled, not emergency. He had an EKG at 12, a bone density test at 1:30 and the HemOc appointment at 3. Busy day.

At the final appointment he was playing with the sticky hand he was given at the second appointment. When it was all nice and dirty, so it wasn't so sticky, he put it on the chair. It was the rolling chair that sometimes the Dr. sits on. Then he told me "When the Dr. comes in and sits there they will stand up and feel their bottom and say "Hey who put that on my chair" and I will hide and say Peek-a-boo! That's a joke. It's a good idea because it's a joke."

He's healthy and continues to be more and more gorgeous.

Big brother

G is so funny. He's got all sorts of advice for his sisters. And he is really sweet to them too. He'll catch the baby trying to eat paper and stop her. He and M are best buds as long as she does what he wants...

Today at the beach he was having so much fun in the tidal pools. He also had a great time out in the waves with dad. Then he started to get really annoyed about the little fish. Finally he just wanted to go home.

He's reading really well and loving his class at school


I wanted to make jam, and like always, I realized I didn't have quite enough sugar.  Rather than go to the store I asked G to calculate ...
