Today things are a little different. I still get my kids to exercise a little by saying yes. Just now it is in answer to the question, "Can we play with the Wii?" In our age of electronic entertainment it takes a little more encouragement to get 'em up and moving. At least for Joshua it is good physical therapy.
We managed to get the kids to go outside for a little while this evening. When I was a kid the problem was getting us into the house not out of it. It was a nice family walk with me desperately trying to get a picture of Joshua before he turned his head or put up his hand. He is a little tired of having his picture taken right now. I can understand.
So today ended up being another uneventful day.
Joshua is still doing well and has been hungry every time he wakes up. We are trying to put five pounds on him by May, one little ounce at a time. Not as easy as you might think. We pump as many calories into him as we can, but the weight comes slowly. We are determined to get him to exercise a little each day to build up the strength in his legs and ankles. A little fresh air mixed with some sunshine and a cool breeze in your face doesn't hurt either.
