First thumb sucking and now this!


In spite of all the bad news we get, on what seems like a daily basis, there were some really encouraging things that happened this week. Nathan started sucking his thumb and continues to. Then, a couple of days ago I was in the kitchen washing dishes and I noticed Nathan “playing.” I quick grabbed my phone and took this short video. Afterward I kept analyzing whether or not he was intentionally hitting the toy. When the OT came by on Wednesday afternoon, she confirmed that yes, he seemed to stretch his arm out and then notice the elephant move. First signs of playing and exploring his world. Super exciting!

My book, Beauty in Broken Dreams: A Hopeful Handbook for the Early Years as a Special Needs Parent, is now available on Amazon!
