In Which Connor Enters Super Hyper Mode

Connor on a Sugar High of DOOOOOOM
Jeremy's work held a chili cook-off today, and he came home with some cotton candy for Connor.  Connor was introduced to cotton candy on a trip to the Puyallup Fair with his respite care worker a couple of years ago and absolutely loved it, and so we bring it home for him once every four months or so as a special treat. 

Connor was already in an absolutely fantastic mood even before the cotton candy; last night he dreamed about something funny and started laughing in his sleep.  He ending up laughing so hard he not only woke himself up, but actually made himself throw up.  It must have been one heck of a dream!  Then the whole rest of the day he was full of giggles and smiles. 

When you combine Connor in a great mood with a major sugar high, hilarity ensues.  He was making some really interesting faces there for a while.  Unfortunately he was moving around way too much to capture most of them with the camera, but trust me when I say that they were pretty awesome.

Anyway, in between bites of cotton candy and the ensuing episodes of Total Freakout Hyper Mode, I did catch a few really sweet pictures of him helping his daddy play on the computer.  At one point he got a little too into helping and started pounding on the keyboard, which is a first for him.  Maybe we should start giving him cotton candy before his therapy sessions-- we'd probably get a lot more done!

Daddy's Big Helper!
We were actually planning on going to the Pacific Science Museum in Seattle today, but first we had to drop off all of Ellen's medical information at the Adoption Medical Center in the University district.  Unfortunately traffic was really bad, and by the time we got out of the center and grabbed a bite to eat it was too late for the museum. 

I did almost manage to kill us all by going the wrong way down a one-way street coming out of the parking garage though, so the trip wasn't a total loss as far as thrilling entertainment goes.  Whee!

Oh, and the wall print for Ellen's room came in the mail today.  I didn't want things to be totally bare in there, so I found one that's relatively abstract and could hang in another part of our house if she doesn't like it.  I also finished stuffing a couple of her cloud pillows.  So her room is coming along, bit by bit!
