This morning, at a somewhat reasonable waking hour, Finn was standing at the side of my bed, grabbed my hand, and said, "Hi Mommy.  I love you."  Does it get any sweeter than this?  First time, Finn said "I love you" spontaneously.  I even think he knew what he was saying.  My heart is still melting.  Finn proceeded to climb in bed with me and snuggled while we played games on his Nabi. 

I love our mornings together, just Finn and me.  We don't get much alone time, so I cherish these week-day mornings, even when they start at an unreasonable waking hour.

It's hard to believe, a year and a half ago, I actually struggled with the decision of whether to stay at home or continue my career.  All I can say is I made the right choice.  I can make my list of pros and cons and sure, staying at home has its ups and downs, but at the end of the day, all that matters is I get this time with the kids and they get the time with me.  I'm going to cherish each and every moment.


  1. Just wanted to say hi. I hope that you had a great winter with your lovely son, cheers Johane

  2. Hi, I just found your blog! As a mom of a 9-month old who was recently diagnosed T9p, I truly appreciate reading about your little boy.

    As it's several years after your last posting, I want to say I truly hope everyone is healthy and doing well. I would love to connect with you to see ow Finn is doing today.

    I'm keeping an online journal about my daughter's journey with T9p, unfortunately as of now it's a lot of moaning on my part about trying to navigate this new way of life; the life of a special needs family. As she grows I hope to update with more news about her development. It's so hard to find other families who are dealing with this condition, especially, as you know, everyone seems to experience it differently!

    All my best,
