He might not be able to stand on his sweet little feet....
so what can I say... we have to get creative around here.

Today I cried.
I cried HAPPY tears.
THEY said it was NOT possible.
THEY said that because he is profoundly deaf... he would NOT understand.
THEY said that because of the white matter we shouldn't hold out HOPE.
THEY might NOT even hear what I hear.
I say NEVER give up HOPE.
I say YOU DON'T KNOW MY SON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last week was a VERY hard one with Collin. So, when my mom invited Regan and I up for a girls weekend I jumped at the opportunity. My Mom and her husband had just gotten back from Germany and Holland so they had lots of stories, pictures, and fun things to share about their trip. It is also nice to go and get some sleep. (Collin most nights only wants Mommy) My mother's home has become such an escape for me. When things are very stressful and Jason is ok with me leaving. I will go up there and spend time with one of my best friends, my mom. It rejuvenates me to spend a carefree day with her. Not having to worry about anything. If she catches me worrying she well tell me "Stop worrying Collin is fine. Jason is a good Dad. It is his turn, ok." I don't think I could ever explain how grateful I am for these short trips up to her house. I feel VERY blessed to have a Mom that loves me so much.
What would be a girls weekend with out yummy food. This time we were feeling up for Mexican food... so thank you viva Marias!

I mentioned in the last post that Collin got very sick on Sunday it was a HARD day. Then on Monday we woke up to a very weak, hurting, and sick little boy. Collin would not let me put him down at all, he is a bit of a Mommas boy. When he is in pain I can not leave his sight. Jason and I saw that the day was wearing on everyone and there wasn't anything that I could do for Regan. So, Daddy stepped in. Jason and Regan took Collin's glasses to get fixed that he broke and stopped for a lunch date at her favorite place Oh Mc donalds. Then later that night Jason and Regan went on spontaneous Daddy daughter date night to an Angels game. She was beyond excited!
Tuesday rolled around and little man was still not doing so well. He was starting to perk up enough to let me leave for a bit with Regan. She has been begging to get her hair cut since I had to shave off all of Collin's this last time. I sent Hannah a text and asked her if she could work her in. Regan was so excited when I told her that I was going to let her cut her hair short like she wanted. After getting and awesome hair cut from Hannah, that she loved we decided to celebrate her new look. What would be better than cupcakes! Since we were right there we decided to go to Frosted and get some yummy treats!
This morning Collin woke up and was doing much better. He had his strength back and was ready to get out of our house. He was VERY happy to go to camp. After dropping Collin off Regan and I headed to the free summer movies to see Hotel for dogs. After the movie Regan just looked at me and smiled and said "Mommy I am spoiled rotten!" I love that despite all of the craziness this week she came away feeling as though she had been spoiled and that this is what she will remember. It is hard to know that so often when Collin gets sick she takes a back seat with out even complaining about it. It makes my heart smile to think that she felt special knowing that we took the time to not forget about her.
