Ground Control to Major Tom, Ground Control to Major Tom, Take your protein pills and put your helmet on. 10- 9- 8- 7- 6- 5- 4- 3- 2- 1 Lift Off (how'd ya like my song Sonya??)

Check out our wicked Space Boy!! I made him over the weekend. I ordered a cute book from Wee Wonderfuls that has a Space Boy and a Robot pattern in it. I'm on a toy kick lately.

I have decided a name for the Hedge Hog. His name is going to be Splinter!!! Thanks to my good beady/knitty buddy Lisabeth for the suggestion.

In other homely news. :) Nathan....he's doing well. We went to another Dr. today and I am so comforted with this Dr. He was a bit more, oh should we say believable?!? haha. Anyway, they ran some vision test, Nathan, bless his heart, was a trooper. After the vision test and other little random assessments, He said Nathan is far sighted. He said a lot of other stuff but I'll spare you the blah blah blah part...remember I had Brent there with me so he caught all the informative mumbo jumbo.... :) So...we are getting the little guy some Wicked Awesome Glasses that bend in every way possible LOL!! They looked to be good and sturdy (and for the price they better be!!!) A vision therapist will be sending us an info packet on exercises for Nathan, so I'll be working on that with him, probably wear my glasses more often than my contacts so he has a partner in vision crime! :) I'm feeling a lot better now after today's visit. This guy didn't rush us, answered all of Brent's questions WITHOUT contradicting himself (hey imagine that!). So it looks like Nathan got my bad eye site. Good ole genes. haha.

If you do need to patch him later on - my friend has a wicked cool patch pattern that fits securely over the arm of the glasses. I'll send it if you ever need it.
Luvvies from your Secret Pal
