January was the month for medical appointments.  Lacy had three in a row one week, which has been a problem in the past.  Not so this time.  It seems that Lacy is getting a little more mellow, and he has been happy to go to an appointment if it means he can get a Sonic drink afterward.

As we waited at the neurologist's office, Lacy began to tell us about a person at LifeStyles who is "drinking all my soft drinks."  Lacy explained that this "hideous, dangerous person" was drinking up all the soft drinks Lacy had, and even causing Lacy to spill the drinks he does get.
