Owen slept a little better last night, woke early but immediately went back to sleep. I think I’m still in sleep mode from yesterday. He had a pretty calm day. I felt on edge most of the day. His words were great and kept coming. And I felt like he was making a lot of connections to those words. He fell off his yoga ball and he said, “be careful”. Earlier he asked, “is it pair of shoes or parachute”. I thought that was very clever. Some of his words don’t always associate with the object or meaning he is trying to express so when he comes up with words and phrases on his own it’s very cool to me. Even if some of the words he is using are from other things I'm still impressed. He ate a lot of food throughout the day. I keep trying new foods or expanding the choices that I give him. He had a cheeseburger and he’s had them before but tonight he ate it with ranch dressing. I asked him if he wanted to try the “sauce”. I made him try a bite and then he asked me to put the sauce on each bite. It’s important to me to get him to try a wide variety of foods. He does pretty well with it but sometimes we still have to work through the process. He played a lot with the laptop and off and on it went. He is truly amazing when it comes to learning technology. He took his bath and he was really tired as he got into bed. The fake snoring commenced almost immediately. “I gotta go to sleep”, he said and then, “you gotta go to sleep”. It wasn’t much longer and he was. His smile made my day, his laughter filled my heart, and his words made me rejoice. Find your inspiration and watch your world grow. Smiles to all and donut daze!
