Just as the Alaskan spring is blooming wonderfully from the snowy winter, the Tureks are emerging from a tough week here. Becky unfortunately needed knee surgery last week and thankfully it went well, though the soreness is a side effect that cannot be avoided. Between a few visits to the doctor and physical therapy, Henry has had to be a very flexible guy this past week. Add in Mommy's need to avoid chasing around and holding Hank for a bit, and you end up with Henry and Daddy attached at the hip for a few days. Henry just rolls with the changes and seems to enjoy the daily hikes around the bog and jogs around the lake.
He's also wise enough to sense that Mom needs a little bit of a buffer on the couch. He smiles and interacts with her, but is conscious enough to give a bit of space. He's a sensitive guy, and he's gone easy on Daddy.
As a 10 month old little guy, he's discovered the unadulterated joy of flailing his legs during baths. Life is wetter and happier than ever now.
