I’m so proud of my baby boy. He is making more and more connections every day. I think, rethink, and overthink our days. Owen is changing right before my very eyes and I have to make sure my thoughts and processes are changing right along with him. He gets overwhelmed so easily with the routine of his day, but yet I see him spreading his wings and trying many new things. Sometimes I hold back on one thing in the fear of the snowball effect I will create. Is it better to be safe or is it better to explore our world. And the answers aren’t so clear cut that the solutions are right there. It’s the 4th of July tomorrow. That means fireworks and cookouts. That also means stress. I really don’t know how he would handle fireworks. It would be hard to take him out late and the noise may or may not bother him. He loves watching animated fireworks and confetti on his tablet, but how does that translate in the real world. And if he hated it how would the days, weeks, and months go after that one moment in time. He still talks about our power being out months ago. For that matter, he sings a song he learned in preschool when I help him wash his hands. He associates moments with memories and keeps them for reference later on. Our world is changing every day. I see songs translated into dances now with Owen and his voice is blossoming. He shares his thoughts and expresses what he wants. The words I dreamed of resonate in my heart and make my soul smile. Never give up. Believe in yourself and the rest will follow. Make today matter. 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.
