Owen slept all night long and I was once again very thankful for this. When he woke he didn’t sound any better than he had the last few days and seemed to be more congested. He was also extremely sad because he wasn’t going to see his grandma. He was crying out to me and saying that he was sad. He was so sad about it but to see him express his emotions is amazing. But it’s with mixed feelings for me because I hate to see him sad but I’m thankful that he is learning about his emotions and that he is allowed to have his own emotions and to express them. He didn’t stop requesting grandma all day. It’s hard explaining that our fevers are causing us to not be able to go. And the fever is holding on to both of us. When he first woke up his nose was continuously running. He’s never really understood how to wipe his nose but today was the day. He still didn’t get it perfectly but he was really doing great with it. He would come to me numerous times to help him and then he started doing it. I’m thankful he is making the connection. He was very playful but he was also high-strung. He showed me a lot of his videos and reacted in many new ways. He kept bringing the pillow for Curious George again and he was ready for pirates and astronauts again. Someone parked in front of our house but they weren’t coming to see us. He looked out the window and kept trying to say hi to the lady but she wasn’t coming here. He got very upset when she wouldn’t come to him. But there are so many times he gets extremely upset when people try to come to our house. It all depends on the routine of our day too. After the initial start to our day, he was happy. There were moments in time when he was sad especially when I told him it would be several days before we could see his grandma but I’m thankful for his growth and all the connections he is making. Find your strength, know that you are amazing, and remember you can change the world with your smile. Smiles to all and donut daze!
