Owen knows that when he goes to sleep and wakes up the next day that he will get to do his routine all over again but he likes to check to make sure it is what he thinks. He will say, “I have to go to sweep and den” waiting for me to tell him what his next day holds. He needs that reassurance. He said, “be careful” as he was doing something he wasn’t supposed to be doing. He’s heard me say it a thousand times and on today’s edition of why he needed to be careful was because he was attempting to stand on a wobble chair. They are hard enough to sit on let alone stand on but he sure tries. Once I told him numerous times not to stand on it he laid his body over the seat and then rested his head on the recliner extending his feet to his yoga ball. I wonder how he can lay as he does. It’s like he is planking across the furniture. I would fall off trying to do it but he has incredible core muscle strength. He loves watching videos about the alphabet. He will say all the words he can think of that start with each letter. Today he started watching a video in a foreign language about their alphabet. A picture of a car flew across the screen but it was with the letter B. He started singing it and saying words like the video. It amazes me that he switches from different languages seamlessly. It’s like all languages are one language to him though. I know that it can be hard for him to distinguish the difference. One day it will all come together for him. As he was drifting off to sleep he kept sitting up yelling “spaghetti”. I told him he could have spaghetti for lunch tomorrow. He told me, no and he quickly fell asleep. The connections, the growth, the smiles, and the love get stronger every day. Thankful for these moments. Never give up on the miracle yet to happen. 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.
