Owen's Aunt Rebecca and her guy Joe flew in from Orlando last Friday
morning, and we enjoyed a great long weekend together. Having come
from 70 degree weather, the Floridians were pretty excited to wake up
Saturday morning and see snow! Rebecca said it was only her 4th time
ever to see the white stuff; Owen is 25 years younger and the lucky fella is
already on his third time. (Though I imagine he would question his fortune
when facing the prospect of being velcroed into that goofy blue hat again.)
I learn so much when I watch how others interact with Owen, and seeing the
way he responded to Rebecca and Joe's energy and enthusiasm (and
sometimes just plain goofiness!) was a great reminder to me that I need to
loosen up and enjoy Owen more. The little guy laughed, "talked" and moved
more than ever these past few days, and I give our two visitors all the
credit. Thanks guys!
The only sad part of the weekend was that Jennifer couldn't be here.
She planned to come Sunday morning but was unable to get a flight.
I really treasure any time all three of us sisters can be together, and it
just didn't feel complete without her. Love you Jenn and hope you can
reschedule a visit soon!
