I can TOTALLY see Daylon being the class clown. All of our kids can be quite the little ham (I kind of think all kids are) but Daylon is the hammiest of the hams in our sty (play on words-not that our house is a mess...at the moment). He will do anything for a laugh, which is always reassuring for a parent; especially the parents of such a fragile guy. He will throw his head back and fall over, growl, randomly bark at those hear a pin drop reverent moments, smack himself with a plastic stick, etc, etc all in the name of humor. He can have us rolling easy-peasey.
Here he is about two months ago when he started feeling better and his true colors started to shine.
It's kind of funny to see how much more he's talking in such a short period. Anyway, his latest trick is launch his booster seat backwards so it's on two legs (he crashes into the wall). Yeah. I think I may have a heart attack.
The whole point of this post was to tell you all about his latest stunt. Just a little bit of a back story, Daylon is puking up anything solid so he sticks to drinking. He loves to drink milk specifically. If he's sitting, he has a cup. I think you got the drift. We tend to stick to open cups at the table because they're less likely to hurt his mouth. Okay, so story time. We're all at the dinner table, dinner is winding down and I want to show Brian how Daylon's coming on his counting.
Me- Watch this Brian! (turn to face Daylon) Daylon, let's show Daddy how big you're getting. Can you count?
Me- (laughing) Ok. Count with Mommy!
Me and Daylon together- One...Two...
Daylon apparently thought I meant, "...on three" when I asked him to count because when we got to three, he launched his milk cup across the table and all over dinner. We all jumped, I may or may not have gasped audibly and the kids just thought it was the funniest thing ever. Brian and I tried not to laugh, but truth be told, I'm a lot better at it than he is. :) It's definitely not something I want repeated, but it was so good to see a kid whose had little to no personality since his stroke, really act like a kid. I've really enjoyed watching the old him reemerge from his brain, even happier and crazier than before. Thank you for all your prayers! They're working!
