Busy having fun

What a week it has been! I've been doting on Summer as much as any mother could. A week away from her really made me miss her, and I've got one more to go. We've been to the playground, discovery museum, visited Thomas and Paw-Paw, done workbooks, read books, colored, played with playdough, played the Wii, watch cartoons/videos, made cookies....it's been quite enjoyable. I'll be missing her again soon so I have been spending every moment I can with her while I'm here. Today we will probably go to the aquarium to see the octopus again before it moves on to the afterlife. I don't know if I mentioned it before, but one of them laid eggs and once it does, it dies within a few months. Even sadder, the eggs were unfertilized so no babies to see. I thought about taking Summer to a movie, but there isn't really anything I think she would like playing right now. By the way, her new favorite movie is "The Cat in the Hat." Not the cartoon version either (if there is one). I am not too sure if I really like the movie. There are definitely a few parts I would cut out that I don't think are appropriate, but overall it is funny. Luckily, her favorite parts aren't those insane ones I'd cut either. We did get to watch a Mommy & Me video we watched together when she was just a baby. It's rather wholesome and fun so I guess it counteracts the other?? Tag and hide-n-go seek have also been there to occupy our time together. She loves these and they are good for the body. :) I don't want to take any days for granted and therefore I try to fit as much fun as possible into everyone.

She is getting so big that it is difficult for me to carry her anymore. Last night we were stuck in a traffic jam for 2 hours during which she, thankfully, fell asleep. I got her out of her car seat and carried her up to our condo, but when we got off the elevator, I was trying to hold onto her and everything else in my hands when she said, "You don't have to carry me." She is such a sweet girl most of the time. So loving. This morning she came to our bed and I gave her a few kisses and waited for us to drift back off to sleep, then she kissed my lips then each of my cheeks then my lips again. To top it all off, she gave me a big hug. Precious moments.....

Scan week is next week and I must say I am getting a little nervous. I know God is control so I shouldn't worry, but I do love her so and don't want to see her suffer anymore. We also will see how her heart is fairing after having all the chemo pushed through it. Too bad I'll be miles away taking care of Daddy. Can it please be next Friday already?

Jacobs first movie was The Cat in the Hat when it came out in theaters. My mom took him and he was horrified so they left within ten minutes. :) We haven't seen it since.

Glad you guys are getting your time together! I imagine you don't take much for granted anymore-I could learn alot from you-I tend to take things for granted everyday.
