Oh I've missed you little blog of mine...you have been cast to the side while I have feverishly been trying to meet deadlines for work, but at nearly 11:30 pm I have stopped for a "cookie dough break" ;) so I figure I must give you a little attention as well to make note of a sweet moment that occurred this morning.
Today Reid and I did our usual drop off of Luke at school and the two of them did their usual hugs in the back seat and I said my usual, "I love you buddy...have a super day, see you at 3:00"....but as Reid and I drove away I heard a noise from the back seat that was not usual. At first I was just concerned with making sure I got out onto the street and into the turning lane without incident so just heard a noise but did not really concentrate on what I was hearing until I looked in the rear view mirror and I saw Reid with his little hands balled into fists and rubbing his eyes....while saying "cwyyyying, cwyyying". Oh my gosh....he was telling me he was feeling like crying because Luke, his best playmate, had to go to school. How stinking cute is that??? Seriously, this little guy just melts me. He loves his Luke so much! But you know what, not only was that soo stinking cute...but so smart. He is really starting to make some big cognitive connections lately and that was one of the first times I have seen him make a connection between his feelings and verbalizing them. Big stuff, fun stuff.
I saw a quote today that I think fits how they feel about eachother...
Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero. ~Marc Brown
I am blessed to be married to an incredibly loving and kindhearted man, Toby, and I am a mom to 2 boys...I am in the chapter of my life that involves baseball games, homework, playdates, diapers, and dump trucks. It is simply the best! With every part of my being I love being "Mom" and have learned the depth at which my heart can go when our youngest son was born with Down syndrome. This blog was created to connect with other families on this same journey that an extra 21st chromosome presents. Join me as I journal about Down syndrome, life, and raising Reid and his big brother Luke.
