Splish Splash

Samuel has been sick the past few days.  When Samuel lays lethargically on the couch, keeps asking for the doctor so the doctor can make him feel better, and won't eat french fries........
you know he is definitely not well!!!
The one benefit of Samuel not feeling well is that he wants me to hold him and snuggle.  It is wonderful for me to sit and hold my little boy.  He is such a ball of energy usually and this just doesn't happen very often!

No therapies to worry about.
No behavior issues to worry about.
No worries about if we are doing enough.
No worries about the future.
Just the present.
Just the joy in his face........
as he jumps off the big rock.
