Yesterday I was riding back from my parents house after celebrating mother's day with my mom and our family; for a minute I almost started crying because I was just so happy. It was a great day. The weather was decent and Will loved every minute of playing outside with his cousins.
We played basketball, raced cars, climbed on the swing set, played with tools and just enjoyed making each other laugh. I am just to thankful to be where we are right now. We've had some "banner moments" the past few weeks with work, Will and our lives. I am so hopeful for the future right now.
I thought I had given up a long time ago on putting expectations on Will. I still have for the most part, but the kid keeps exceeding my expectations every day. His little hands are getting stronger to cut, work and manipulate items for fine motor skills. And while he doesn't appear to be a huge fan of speech therapy he's doing pretty awesome there. Though as he said in today's session, "This is taking sooo long."
So for today and as many more days as I can muster, I will refuse to think of what will happen when he can't, but focus on all the amazing things he is accomplishing today.
I am honored to be his mom, humbled that I was given this amazing person and incredibly proud of my son, my hero and my little teddy bear Will.
My mother's day flowers and vase. One hand was orange of course - his favorite color these days. I also got a spa day from Neil - one smart husband he is!
Playing with trains over the weekend. I think he enjoyed making them crash into each other the most.
