I haven't talked a lot about Callum lately and Callum is just doing such a great job these days so he was long overdue a post!!! As my mom would say he is doing his "walkings, walkings and talkings, talkings"! I love him, he is so cute. He passed my mom a rubber ducky on Saturday and he tells her "quack quack". She was confused and so she just looked at him so he proceeded to quack. When she got it she quacked and than next thing we know he is just rolling in laughter. He just likes hearing people quack.
He feels the same way about barking. I have a book by Sandra Boynton that is about 10 barking dogs and you have to bark 10 different ways. Cally loves that book and when I can't read it to him he just sits patiently and keeps barking at the book until I cave. Callum loves all books and brings them to any person who walks through our doors. There is nothing funnier than seeing random people trying to read Dr. Seuss. Today he tormented Rachel's poor social worker who has no rhythm with his favorite book: Rings Rings Fingers Thumbs.
His walking is improving. His gait is really good and so even though it took him longer it is definitely quality movement. With all the challenges we have had with Rachel it makes me appreciate more the little things like walking with your feet facing forward.
I'm really proud of Callum. Sometimes I wish each twin had been like Harmon and I could have enjoyed them one at a time b/c I feel like I miss so much. Now that Rachel has this diagnoses I need to remember to brag and gush over my Cally just like I do my Rachel b/c everything wonderful he is doing is just as special!
