I have no idea why in the world we didn't do this on one of the last few days, when it was too cold and gross out to go outside. I will admit, however, that my eyes are less red and my nose is less runny, so all that
After I showered and rinsed off all the bleach, Elliot and I spent the rest of the afternoon outside. We went for a walk and Elliot did a bunch of new things: he looked at the fish in the pond, smelled a bunch of flowers, and fed the horses.
We decided to go to the 5:00 mass so that we could relax tomorrow morning. Elliot has been getting a burst of energy every time we go to church lately. WOW. That's all I can say. He's crazy!
To wrap the day up, he had a big bowl of homemade applesauce, a bath, a bottle, and then proceeded to fight sleep for almost an hour. I like to sing songs to Elliot while I'm rocking him, and today the song "It Won't be Like This for Long" by Darius Rucker came on. I thought I finally had my hormones under control but I guess not, because I totally burst into tears. My little boy is just growing up so fast.
"This phase is gonna fly by, so baby just hold on.
It won't be like this for long."

and very excited to go for a walk:
