I had a dream last night…I was sitting on the floor a few feet from Elijah. Out of the blue, he crawled over to me and then crawled right past me so fast that he looked like a little crab on the floor. Shortly after, he got up and started to run around the house. I was so surprised that I started to run after him. I couldn’t catch up to him so I yelled out his name for him to stop. He slowed down enough to turn around, give me his mischievous smirk, and keep running. Then I woke up, feeling like I had just witnessed a piece of the future.

Our lives are full of so much uncertainty when it comes to what is going to happen in Elijah’s future. The concern with brain injury is that at some point, development will come to a halt. Of course, I don’t believe this will happen. I believe he’s going to be crawling, walking, running and my dream was just confirming that. Sometimes it’s just nice to have a little bit of reassurance that everything is going to be okay for our little man (even if it’s just a silly little dream).

Right now, Elijah is still wide awake and is the happiest little boy. Granted, I would like it if he was sleeping, but he is being so cute! He was giggling his little head off a few minutes ago and I just love that sound! He’s finally getting sleepy now in Andy’s arms and is doing that adorable “complaining” thing he does. So cute. :)
