Owen is learning emotions. He was crying. Maybe he was working through why he isn’t in school, maybe he was working on the emotion of crying. All I know is I wanted to cry with him. He couldn’t tell me why he was crying but one day I know he will be able to. He’s been pretty mellow all day. I love how he is starting to make the connection to what his body can do. He was watching a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse video and they were dancing. I asked him to dance for me and he did. He got up from the couch and he tried to do the moves like Mickey and the gang was doing. My heart rejoiced. Now, this boy is making sure his belly is full all day, every day. I’m so excited about all the new things he is trying and the amount of food he has been eating. He had waffles and cereal for breakfast. Then he had yogurt. For lunch, he ate a cheeseburger. He doesn’t really eat beef so for him to eat a cheeseburger was a huge step and made this momma smile. Numerous snacks before dinner and numerous snacks after dinner, after the huge dinner I should say. I made three chicken patties with gravy and onion rings. He ate almost all of the onion rings, I only had a couple and he ate almost two of the chicken patties. I gladly stopped eating when I saw he was passing me up to give him the second patty and the rest of my onion rings. He ate it all but one last bite of the chicken patty. He might have finished it if he didn’t run off to go potty and then get distracted when he was done. I’m thrilled he is willing to try so many new things. He’s growing and learning. Today as time stood still I saw my baby still moving forward. I’m thrilled for his growth and can’t wait to see what tomorrow holds. Find your strength, share your story, and smile for the world to see. 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.
