Our day started off shocking once again. Owen is fascinated by the fact that somehow he is shocking me with his touch and he runs around the room trying to find the magic of how he’s shocked me. This to me is a huge connection. I’m amazed that he has put it all together, like some type of science experiment. I’m excited that he is so fascinated by it. The smile on his face is as electrifying as the action. This morning he didn’t want to walk to the bus stop, he wanted to “ride in de car”. I told him we were going to walk. It was the slowest animated walk we have ever been on. The lights were bothering him, he couldn’t find the moon, and he wanted to knock on the doors we passed. Sometimes I’m really not sure how to help him through these moments. I kept walking, telling him I loved him, and the bus would be there soon. I sit here tonight listening to him recite words that he has learned from a video. He thinks he is saying all of the words, maybe he is, but they are crammed in so quickly and he is using the voice of the character that he learned them from that I can only tell what it is because I’ve heard it so many times with the inflections. He truly amazes me with his memory and connections. I am thankful for his smile tonight and his continued efforts to find how to shock me again. I cherish each step he takes and love watching him grow. Cherish the memories, grow in the moments of victory, and know that you are not alone. Smiles to all and donut daze!
I'm Lynn Browder. Owen's Mommy. The best moments in time are when I get to see the smile on his face and that giggle come from his heart.
