Being couch/bed bound for 3 straight days taught me my critters are getting REALLY big really fast. Cally loved me being immobile and took full advantage by hanging out in my lap the whole time. I could see in his eyes Harmon when we first moved to Las Cruces. It makes me want to spend just more time where I am not preoccupied with life and I'm just appreciating how cute they all are. Each one I observed special little things with this week:
- Harmon has gotten so much better w/his sensory intergration. He is much calmer and happier. He is really starting to express himself with his words! He sings this song all on his own, 5 little ducks, and is so proud of himself. He will sing it to you all day if you let him.
- Rachel is so smart. My Mom got Harmon this Toy Story Race Track designed for kids 2+ Rachel has already FIGURED IT OUT! I just can't believe she is handling these small cars, putting them on the top of the track and than pushing the button to go down.
- Callum is getting really strong and so well coordinated. We have those little plastic balls that we all played with as kids. Cally goes and throws the ball against the wall so it comes back at him. He plays like this for 5 or so minutes. Very cute and smart!
Today I heard something interesting. It was a talk about how young airplane pilots fly into turbulance and decide the best thing to do is to fly faster; but really when you fly planes and you run into turbulance the best thing you can do is slow down. I attack life at full speed but it made me think; what am I missing while I'm trying to do "it all". Later in the talk I heard the speaker said something to the effect of: we can fill up our lives with many good things but sometimes b/c we are so busy we are missing some of the best things. I think this is me! Slowing down a little isn't the worse thing... lets just see if I heed my own advice.
