Ty is amazing. The picture below was taken only 8 days ago, yet he was sitting up all weekend, telling jokes, smiling a lot and we even made it out to the dollar store and the supermarket today. Ty did get sick and throw up in the dollar store, but we were prepared and he brushed it off immediately. He asked for a Ring Pop and we were on our way.
Last night, Ty allowed me to hold and snuggle him for the first time in weeks. He is usually too apprehensive about moving his head around and he thinks it will hurt if I hold him, so I know he must be feeling better. He fell asleep as I cradled him and I just couldn't help but begin weeping and weeping. The tears just wouldn't stop. He's grown so much over the last six months (and in so many ways), but his face is the same face I've been staring at for hours on end as he lay in my arms since the day he was born. He's the most beautiful thing in the world. Please God, don't ever let my arms be empty.
