I was in bed most of yesterday with a fever….still not feeling great today but much better. Owen was on his best behavior taking very good care of me. He brought me a selection of books to read, a stuffed animal to hold, his snowman that plays songs in case I got lonely as well as a glass of iced water and some cornflakes in case I was hungry. After each delivery he would say, “If you need me just say ‘OWENNNNN’ and I’ll come.”

He also told me that I was ‘beautifuller than a flower,’ ‘prettier than a ballerina,’ and ‘the greatest of life.” I asked him what that meant and he said it meant I was greater than everything. At bedtime he shared some of his grapes with me and then asked if we could snuggle. He’s going to make a great boyfriend.
