Dear Noah......emotional days for you lately......

I am not sure what is going on inside your body and mind.....all I know is you have been pretty emotional lately. I won't rehash everything over the past couple of weeks here again..suffice to say you cry at the drop of a hat....have a semi-fit....sort of get over it...and within a short time it can happen all over again. VERY similar to how you used to be when you were very young....been awhile since I have seen with such regularity.

BUT we are now hopefully reaching a steady calm in the stormy seas.....as we cut back a bit on some of the activities outside the home and do a few more just you and me within the home and out in our environment. I have realized I cannot take you to the pool and then somewhere else in the same day...it is just too much.

We did go to the pool the other day. One of your classmates from school was there and he was so excited to see you. The two of you had such a good time. All in all the day was a great one...with great weather and good times in the pool.

However later when we headed to the hospital for your presurgical tour....we never made it because of a closed highway and wrecks and construction and well...crap.

This upset me and you.....so we headed to your aunt Angela's house earlier than planned ..or event #3. You cried almost the entire time there about something. Needless to say we all learned a valuable lesson. You can only do so much in one day before it is oversimulation to the max........I need to keep my cool as I am setting an example for you on how to HANDLE stress in a positive way.....and keeping things simpler works better for us all.

Here are some pics of you and your bud Cameron at the pool!

That's nice you have a friend from school you were able to see and play with. Perhaps he'll be there another time when you go. Love you little man.

nice pics... and you guys did have a stressful time getting to my house... but Noah was okay. Just disappointed that Alex wasn't there, and disappointed he didn't get to the hospital... and not really able to express it.

Plus he was super hungry...

Did he fall asleep on the way home?

are you kidding? He would be too afraid he would miss something.....although right close to home he finally started to doze off a bit.....he slept good last night!

Yes, we go through the same thing. I took TC to McDonald's then to the grocery store and it was a disaster.
