Here is a photo of our brave little boy, sneaking into mummy's bed as he's not been well the past few days.We've had a busy weekend here in Doncaster and Lew has spent some time with his friends. We walked to Lakeside Village with Livia and Mun (in the rain!). Livia gave Lewis a very cute green soft rattle thing which Lew enjoyed hearing rattle as we bumped along! And later we went to Normanby Country Park in Scunthorpe with Jay and Luke! Lewis will be presented with his Bravery Award on Monday 22nd October at the Best Wellchild Childrens Health Awards 2007 at The Oval in London. On Tuesday 23rd October, BEST magazine will feature an article about all the winners from the Awards so please do go out and buy a copy!
The Awards will be televised on The Community Channel (Sky channel 539) in early December. I will let you all know nearer the time what the exact air date/time will be. http://www.communitychannel.org.uk/ and http://www.wellchild.org.uk/Thank you very much to Helen Brierley for the AMAZING blue card for Lewis' new blue room. We are going to frame it and put it on Lew's new bedroom wall!
And to finish, a poem for all the very special little boys we know and love and could never imagine living without.
As I Watch You Sleeping As I watch you sleeping, my problems seem so small. The rewards you have to offer me, are so big and so tall.
As I watch you sleeping, I realize just how great your accomplishments are. I know how much you struggle to have made it this far.
As I watch you sleeping, I can't imagine how my life would be without you. Even through the hard times I'd be lost without you.
As I watch you sleeping, I see just how much you have brought into my life. All the joys and happiness, all the wonder and excitement.
As I watch you sleeping, I am overcome with such love. Your sweetness and happiness, are something I can't get enough of.
As I watch you sleeping, I think just how lucky I am. To be the mother of such a beautiful little boy.
As I watch you sleeping, all of my worries seem to melt away. I know that no matter what happens, together we can make it through another day. (Thanks to Anna Bovell for that poem - www.caringbridge.org/visit/nathanbovell). Here are a couple of photos of Nathan.
We are very excited as we will be meeting Nathan and his mum and dad (Anna and Andy) on Tuesday at London Zoo! It will be great to finally meet up with Nathan and Anna as we have been online friends for several months now and with Lewis and Nathan being so very similar in condition, it will be an experience for both sets of parents to meet another child like ours/theirs!
And here is another photo of Lewis' friend Declan (http://www.declan-kelly.com/). We are hoping to be able to visit Caroline and Nathan in December.
