It's The Little Things
This a common title among my postings. But it truly is the little things that bring such joy and celebration in our home. We have been working with Oliver's physical therapist on climbing. Just the simple task of climbing onto the couch. This morning I was sitting in our oversized chair with the ottoman pulled up. He took a running start, hoisted himself up and climbed the rest of the way. He crawled up and settled in next to me. Then he gave his signature thumbs up over his head (means "good job"). It was priceless. He has been back up there a few time already this morning. It is so fun to see him master something new. And yesterday, while walking Wavey back from her school bus, she repeated the word "today" back to me. I haven't heard her say that word in a long time and she wouldn't say it again. But for that moment, she was able to say it back to me. It was beautiful. I love little things.
