My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Squeezing This In

Squeezing This In

Liam got worse as the hours progressed on last night. He now has a barking cough and was gasping for air. I have a doctor's appointment (with the doctor I love) later today. Poor little guy! I wish that I could just wave my magic mom wand and make him all better.
Ian is staying home with him this morning because I have a funeral to attend. We were all supposed to go, but we don't dare take him out. The funeral is for my best friends aunt who was like family to us. Millie had a brain tumor and has been sick for a while now. It was expected, but not to happen this soon.
So I am writing this quick post to try to make my day a little bit more uplifting. The day before yesterday Liam hit some major milestones in my book.

  • He started to clap and loves to play pat-a-cake!
  • He also started to play peek-a-boo without me coaxing him. He did it to get my attention so how could I not play along...for 10 minutes!
  • And, he danced for the first time on his own. Up to this point, I would put on some tunes, hold him in my arms and we would dance around the room. Great workout by the way! I had put him down for a minute to get something from the bathroom. He pulled himself up using our computer chair and when I came around the corner he was bopping his little legs and bum to the music!
Have I told you that I love this little kid?
