When you have a child with a disibility the victories are so much sweeter; you wait longer and work harder. And because I haven’t had enough sweets this holiday season, I thought I would share our most recent victories.
Ella will be 19 months on Saturday….
and although she doesn’t say much she signs. Victories won in the signing department:
zoom zoom, if you can qualify that as a sign.
She has mastered throwing her food down on the ground if she doesn’t want it and can feed herself with a spoon (with a little help). She sucks out of a straw (old news-she’s done that since she was one).
She loves to walk with help and can make it up the stairs all-by-herself. And (drum roll please) can pull herself up to standing!(It’s been a long time coming). And one of her favorite things to do besides throwing things down the stairs is COLOUR.
And then there is my Jakob. He never fails to bring colour to my day… or my coffee table. His two passions are cars and painting and today, he got to combine the two thanks to Uncle Ryan.
A little bit of pint sized inspiration to brighten up your day.
