We are about to leave for our drive up to PA to spend Thanksgiving with my family. Waverly was so excited when I told her we were going to see Grandma & Grandpa. I waited to tell her until after she got off the bus. We are going to pick up Matt at the metro station and then away we go. I am hoping the traffic won't be too bad. I am so anxious to see everyone.
This has been a rough week for all of us. There have been many more changes in Waverly. I think we are entering another hyper stage. It is difficult because she has so much energy, but very little coordination and her brain just doesn't understand. She is climbing on everything and chewing like I have never seen her chew before. Her hands are losing strength. She can't hold onto a ziploc bag anymore (I always carry them with me filled with snacks for the car. Now I have to pass them to her one at a time.) She is falling more and more. And then we look at Oliver and know that he is going to have to endure these same difficulties.
This is going to be an emotional Thanksgiving. At times I don't feel like I have a whole lot to be thankful for. Yet, I cherish every day I have with the kids and I am thankful to spend this time with 2 incredible souls.
I hope you all have a very happy Thanksgiving.
