Despite my struggles today, I must admit that I experience two tremendously memorable moments today.
Today we welcome our first snowfall of the season. I have always loved the snow that the cold weather brings, and I hope to pass this love along to Henry. I was able to spend 15-20 minutes or so outside with Henry. He tasted his first taste of powder. And, he tried sledding for the first time, making two short runs down our neighbor’s hill.
And, moments ago, Henry woke from his otherwise peaceful sleep. He was wheezing and coughing, though he only seems to do this when he wants to be picked up from his bed. I knew this, but I went in to check to make sure everything was OK. Henry was wide awake and wanted to get down. I held him tight and eventually he fell asleep in my arms.
