Keep your eyes peeled

"Mom, today I'm gonna keep my eyes peeled for worker guys and school buses, " Jeffery tells me as we cross the street headed to therapy. "Hey! There's a worker guy! 'HI!' I saw a worker guy, check!"
Every day for the past 5 days, Jeffrey and I have been camped out for at least a half hour/hour watching excavators, skid steers and dump trucks do their thing on one part of the hospital. We just sit, relax, wave and marvel in awe of the diggers. It really is cool to watch. We saw the excavator change digging tools a few times and they even unearthed this huge concrete "thing" (for lack of a better term).
I think the construction workers get a kick out of the fact that we just watch them for entertainment and they wave back and smile. Either that or they are cursing us under their breath for watching them perform hard labor. Either way, it is a good way to pass the time. Now you know the inspiration for his naming of his external fixator, "The Excavator."
Just livin the dream


  1. What a sweetie pie. Miss him already! Hopefully we'll get to see him this weekend!

  2. He looks sooo relaxed, at least for this moment!

  3. You are such a good mom, Jill! Tell Jeffrey that Pippet says hi :)

  4. Oh my gosh, Jill, he truly is a special little boy...and soooo smart!!!
    Give Jeffrey lots of xxxxxxoooooo from us.

  5. My grandson, Dylan, called them diggers and we spent many hours looking for diggers when he was a little guy! Now he tells me the official names! Glad Jeffrey has something fun to watch! And I bet those construction guys love having Jill watch them work!!!!!!
