She is a single mom of 2 boys. Tyler is 6 and Rilee is 13 months. Rilee was a preemie and needed a liver transplant before 6 months old, so he had a very rough start! He's still on a feeding tube, has a trach and needs monitors when he leaves the house. So I told her I would help her go somewhere. We went to Olive Garden with our 4 kids and it went pretty well! Dawson had an allergic reaction to the salad dressing on the 1 crouton he ate, but that was resolved quickly and the rest of the meal went very well. Anyone who has taken 4 kids out to eat knows that it going well just means nobody ended up soaked, lost, no dishes broken, etc. It was a fairly hectic and noisy meal, but we were happy that they were able to get out and about for once! Next month we are going to the zoo! We're all excited.
It's a bummer that people don't follow through with what they say. She, like I have, had many people say they would visit or do something, but nothing came of it. There are several people that I have decided to make plans with once a month. Would be more, but they live further away and that's an improvement from what we were seeing of eachother!! It's nice to have those people to look forward to seeing. I'm trying to see other friends more often too. Please contact me if anyone wants to do anything! There have been some I've been trying to call but got no answer.
Dawson and Tasha's son Tyler
Tyler was limited to Onsie shirts, which were hard to find in 24 month size! He wore this one a lot.
We also got to play in our friend's pool this week. Dawson was nervous at first, but eventually he was walking all over, even in the middle! He is tall enough to just be able to walk and have his head and neck above water comfortably. Gabriel was not a fan of the water, it was still a bit cold, but he eventually got used to it and was smiling and splashing along with Dawson.
I'm looking forward to next week, which includes some new, exciting things!
