We stayed overnight at the guesthouse. It wasn't too relaxing with all our hospital appointments, but it was nice to break the trip into two days. And Timothy enjoyed getting to explore another guesthouse.


After Timothy gave us quite a scare with his episode of cyanosis we stopped by the hospital on the way home to the capital to see a doctor and run some tests. He was very brave for his blood test, reasonably cooperative for his urine test, and fascinated by his X-ray. First photo: Tim on the X-ray table. Second photo: After they took the X-ray, they handed us the dripping wet film to carry over to the other side of the hospital.

Week in the East

Steve had meetings in 10 hours East, so Tim and I went along for the ride. He and I enjoyed hanging out together in the guest house during the day, then spending time with Steve in the evenings. Here we are -- Tim is getting a real African "bucket bath" since our room didn't have a bathtub. The second photo is of Steve and Tim sitting at a table in a restaurant, waiting for our food to come.

Fangs and standing at the front door

First photo: Teeth numbers three and four (the first two being the bottom center ones) look like fangs. Here he is showing them off, so pleased after having pulled himself up on his stroller, which we store in our living room.

Second photo: Tim also likes to pull himself up on the front screen door so he can stand and look outside. He's getting pretty good at pulling himself up and lowering himself down again carefully, after a few scary falls flat on his back on the tile floor.

Morning workout

In the mornings, Timothy and I like to go exercise with our friend Murielle. Some mornings, we take the running stroller to the stadium. Other mornings we lift weights in her home gym, as you can see here... Well, actually Tim usually plays in his Pack-N-Play while we lift weights, but every once in awhile it's fun to pretend he's working out.
