Rejoicing the milestones
A good writer, blogger, and mom, who has adorable twin boys, posted something that really rang true for me. Her son Malachi suffered a stroke and is a little delayed in reaching his milestones than his brother. Recently, Malachi was able to reach several milestones within a few days, yet she didn't feel ecstatic like her friends and family. After a good cry, she realized that she was so focused on his future and the milestones ahead that it sapped the joy of his current success. (Read the post here.)
I realized that I was doing the same thing, only I was still blind! I feel so grateful to Shasta for writing such a moving post. Perhaps, I would have spent several more months missing out on my son's progress and sapping the joy of his successes!
My son, I rejoice over your success at starting to crawl, pulling yourself up to stand, and really trying to talk! I guess it's better late than never!
