Owen said last night "a is for apple, b is for ball". There was not a happier moment for me this week. I sat here and just bawled. I wanted to try and figure out how to get him to say it again. I wanted to repeat that moment a thousand times. I wanted to rewind and record those precious words.
With me saying that was the best moment in time, I could have said that about a day earlier in the week where he was listen to the Small Potatoes Christmas song and he sang! He literally sang! He sang the words he knew and he made sounds through other parts of it. To hear my baby sing Momma Momma and then hohoho was the best feeling ever. Having him actually sing words with the song, not just say them, was beyond amazing. Knowing he is getting this is the so awesome!
This week I have reached out to a few organizations and with that being said I am happy to say I am starting a support group in the Charleston, WV area. There will be more details in the next few weeks about what is to follow. Please contact me if you would like to be included in this group or help out in any way. If you are not in this area but would like to get a support group going I can help you get in contact with the right people to help you with your journey as well.
This journey with Owen might be different than I thought but through Owen I find such strength. He has given me a new determined motivation and seeing his smile and hearing his laughter is all I need to make my day bright. I am so thankful for my amazing little man. I cherish every step in this journey with him and know that everything will be alright.
