It has been a boring day for Brit...good news. After the scare this morning, she has calmed down and been able to relax. Right now they are monitoring Gaines' heart rate and everything seems fine.
Brit got to spend the day with her mother and father. Her sister and I took Reed to the Circus. Reed was so funny at the circus. He kept dancing in his chair. Whenever the elephants or horses would come out Reed would point and smile. He was so cute.
At one point during the Circus I had to take Reed to the concourse of the Verizon Center (a 17-month old's attention span is only so long). Reed ran up and down the concourse...it was virtually empty as everyone was inside watching the circus. After a while he got tired so we sat down on a bench together. He crawled into my lap and kissed my cheek. All of a sudden it hit me that he would be leaving tomorrow and I didn't know when I would see him again. I began to cry. The next thing I know, he is patting me on my head, as if to say"Its okay daddy". I had to smile.
My prayer tonight is for Reed. I know this time apart is harder for me than it is for him. He's so young, he doesn't understand. I hope one day he knows we scarificed this time with him so we could bring him his baby brother.
