I have been much better at not 'worrying' about him so much anymore. Part of it is that I am keeping the camera near me at all times so I can record all of his 'yay moments'. Here are a few from this past week:
Signing "All Done" or "Finished" in sign language.
Learning to stand with support.
Feeding himself. With six new teeth, this is extra fun for him.
In taking these pictures and many, many more, I am reminded that these are ALL things the doctors told us originally that Mikail would NEVER be able to do. So, why am I worried, right? Well, the natural protectiveness in us parents leads us to want the best for our children and do the best we can for them and then the 'what if it's not enough?' question. Blahhh!!!
So, here I am remembering to live in the moment and enjoy all the wonderful milestones we are meeting in 'Mikail's time', not 'Mama's time'.
