Big buildings

Little Elvis wanted to build a garage for his tow truck the other day. I suggested he use the building blocks we got after Christmas. He was fine with that, and even allowed Baby Plum to help us.
Baby Plum kept wanting to make it a very tall skyscraper. I complied. And since he wasn't impeding with the parking of cars in random parts of the building, Little Elvis was fine with it being tall, too.
The tow truck lives in the center hole. And I'm not sure about the other cars. Both boys were proud of their creation, and it lasted longer than I thought it would. Baby Plum loves knocking down his creations, and this one was very tall.
I tried to place myself between Cheese Puff and the building, because I just knew it would tumble his way. It didn't. I had picked him up before Baby Plum accidentally ran into the building.

Tomorrow morning we will be taking Cheese Puff to have an ultrasound on his hip. It apparently pops. We had to have Little Elvis' hip x-rayed at this age, and he was fine. They considered sending Baby Plum, but decided against it. Now, they are concerned about Cheese Puff having dysplasia. I'm trying not to worry, but the doctors are more laid back here. So, if they are sending us, then that is a little more troublesome.

At least this time it will be an ultrasound. I assume we can be there. With Little Elvis, we had to leave the room while they x-rayed him. He did fine, but I hated leaving him alone.

That is one awesome building. And the boys look so proud! I'm glad they're already got the multi-functionallity of buildings figured out (parking below, etc) it takes some architects YEARS to reach that level of design!

I hope the ultrasound will go well. In Germany, hip ultrasounds were the standard of care for infants to check (whatever it is they check) and they were definitely not as scary as x-rays! I'll say a little prayer that it's a normal (just noisy) hip!

Poor little guy (and you!). Hopefully it turns out to be nothing and all of this will just be a precaution.
