I cried so much before Lou got to the beach because I was alone for the first time in ages and I saw a number of toddlers playing in the sand that made me smile, and then cry. I can't help it because I can't stop thinking about how that was TY! Not too long ago, that was MY BABY playing in the water, shoveling the sand.... it's hard. But it's also so good for me. To be alone and to allow myself to be sad over what we lost. It's okay and it's healthy and it helps me to feel better afterward. If I wasn't allowed this luxury of solitude, I'm afraid the buildup would eventually become unbearable, so this time away from home has been very therapeutic for me. For all of us, I think. I mean, just look at how Ty is doing?!!?!! He has been so happy over the past few days. He's getting better and better and will continue to do so!!
I mentioned how much fun we had at my friends house on Friday when they set up a bouncy house for the kids. Here are a few pictures now that Blogger is working...
|Ty is enjoying a gummy bear or something so he couldn't be bothered with smiling, but he's happy|
|That's Gavin, falling down the slide like a maniac|
|There's no denying that this kid is having fun..|
|And here's Ty. See how much better his eyes are doing! It is almost a non-issue by now.|
Although we are away from home, my sister-in-law has been checking in for us every day and I want to thank whoever sent a perishable package this week. It was received and taken inside, no problem. I just didn't want you to worry :) Thank you so much! It will be such a treat to come home to on Friday. :)
XOXO love Ty and the Campbell's
