As the 'roids make their way out of Collin's system, we're starting to catch glimpses of our sweet little boy again. Yesterday, when our good friends Sarah and Nicholas stopped by for a visit while they're in town to take the bar exam, Collin toned down the growling and even opened his eyes for Nicholas. Then he declared today "I DO Remember How To Smile Day" and set out to prove it by grinning and squealing and kicking and just generally being awesome all dang day. I thought I was going to puke from happiness.
Related to Collin's transformation as he comes clean from one set of drugs is the fact that he no longer acts like he's dying when we try to give him a bath. It was weird not feeling like I was being shot at while trying to frantically finish rinsing him. I stood there kind of confused as he kicked in the water and he looked at me like, 'what?'
PS. No spasms since Saturday morning.
