I had the most WONDERFULLY AMAZING visit with my littlest man today! He was already awake in his crib when I got there and so we had a little play. He was able to track a toy for a bit as well as take a good look at his mobile. They might seem like small things but for a child with a brain injury these are really HUGE! To see him act like a baby even in slight ways are exciting!
Michael and I went back up tonight but he was fast asleep on his tummy with his nose buried in the mattress (his favourite position, thank goodness for nasal prongs). I put the side of the crib down and put my face next to his (MY favourite position!) and whispered in his ear. He was in such a deep sleep but he raised his head up twice (and flopped it right back down into the mattress) so I know he knew I was there. After the week we had, I am so very thankful for days like today.
Little baby steps and little baby dreams = Perfection
P.S. I passed on his kisses for you! ;)
