Never say never.

"Never say never!" Wyatt proudly exclaimed after I pointed out that he had been sitting up in his Xpanda chair for nearly 5hrs.

"Never say never!" He told me as I gushed about how proud of him I was as he sat, balancing himself on the end of the bed for a few seconds as I snapped a picture this past week. 

I'm not sure why exactly he began saying this phrase recently or where he picked it up from, but it's perfectly fitting.

Wyatt's hallucinations have faded away once again, he's been awake for longer stretches recently and today he and Bryan worked together at the dining room table constructing a 3ft tall motorized K'nex roller coaster. It's not yet completed and after quickly glancing at the size of the instruction booklet, it appears to me that Daddy has a long night of building ahead of him, as his sidekick has moved on to sleeping. But this afternoon as Wyatt was holding a few K'nex pieces on the tray of his chair, he contently sighed saying "I always wanted to do this." That, my friends, makes it all worth it. 

Never say never.
