I See You

I’m realizing tonight that I haven’t written much lately. I used to write here 1-2 times weekly, and that pace has slowly dwindled to 1-2 times monthly. And there’s a very simple reason for that: this blog of mine is fulfilling it’s purpose beautifully. It has been the outlet that has allowed me to safely… Continue reading I See You

Find 9 Strawberries…

As I sat here this afternoon with our Child Development Services representative, we’ll call her “S” for short, it dawned on me all over again just how far our Evrett Bug has come. Even as I sit here typing away at this, with Bug right next to me playing with the alphabet, I feel almost… Continue reading Find 9 Strawberries…

Thank You, God

I lay here tonight holding my darling Bug, crying tears of joy & relief. Tears of “I’m so happy this nightmare is over”. Tears of “I knew it couldn’t be real”. Tears of “Thank goodness our Bug will have a long & happy life”. I lay here holding him, feeling him breath, knowing what a… Continue reading Thank You, God

100!!!!

With Evrett’s big appt coming up on October 5th with our “head honcho” (his genetic specialist), I kinda thought I would be more nervous. Afterall, we have no idea what he is going to say; will he inform us that the final stages of testing are complete, and that we have an official diagnosis for… Continue reading 100!!!!

The World Doesn’t Stop Spinning…

I haven’t written much in a few weeks now…which is quite odd, for me. I’ve thought about writing a lot, every day, actually. But somehow, I just couldn’t bring myself to grab the laptop. Maybe it’s because….life has been busy? Anyone who is a teacher, or has children (or is both a teacher AND a… Continue reading The World Doesn’t Stop Spinning…

Fruits & Veggies

Since Evy was about 14 months old, his worrisome diet has been very limited, and has remained almost exactly the same as time has gone by: Milk, Toast with Peanut Butter or Nutella, crackers, bear paws, sometimes Cinnamon Raisin Bagels, dry cereal such as Vector, Cheerios, or Fruit Loops, Nutrigrain Bars, Squishem’s (for those who… Continue reading Fruits & Veggies

Evy tends to become whom we affectionately (though somewhat tiredly) call “Mr. Party Boy” when nighttime approaches. He is happier than ever, and we’re fairly sure that if we let him, he would play every night until 11 PM-midnight!! So, 2 nights ago, when Evy woke up in the night to play again, we weren’t… Continue reading 1 to 10

To be ok with not being ok…

I mentally paced back & forth all weekend about this post. I thought of making it in to more of a “look on the bright side” kind of entry, in which I would turn every fear I have for Evy in to a beautiful rainbow. After all, changing the lens through which we view things… Continue reading To be ok with not being ok…

Reading Numbers!!

Today was no ordinary, run-of-the-mill Monday. Not by a long shot… It felt as if the Gods/Goddesses of the Universe smiled upon us! My afternoon at work was lovely; I’m settling in to the position of legal administrative assistant even more, and thus am finding my own rhythm. This was also the first afternoon leaving… Continue reading Reading Numbers!!

A Bedtime Poem for Bug

As I snuggle up next to this sweet little boy, my heart is truly overflowing with joy. Sure I could go to my own bed, but why not cuddle down beside him instead. Life is usually so busy, we nearly never get time alone, so I must take advantage of this time before you’re grown.… Continue reading A Bedtime Poem for Bug
