Milestones and Miles!

Milestones...I really need to invent a baby book for moms of special needs children. The "regular" ones just don't fit. They make you feel bad that your child doesn't fit the template. AnnaKate makes progress in her on time...and we are thankful for the progress. Today we got her progress report. It is really amazing to look back at how far she has come since her goals were initiated in the fall. I could not possibly list all of her accomplishments in this post. We are so proud of her!

I was able to take AnnaKate to school today and pick her up. I don't normally get to do this so it was fun. Her teacher, Diane, was so excited this afternoon because AnnaKate got out of her chair today on her own. (Not like she does in the previous video-worm style) She scooted her bottom forward, leaned forward and then crawled out. She did it again for me and I was so proud! Last fall, I went to observe Diane's class. I saw these little babies pushing their chairs to Circle Time and sitting in their precious minature chairs. I never could believe that AnnaKate would do that. Diane assured me that she would...and she is!! YEAH!

Miles...Well---we are off again! We are headed to the beach tomorrow. It will be a long trip so I bought a few new toys that I am hoping to bust out just when needed. We are looking forward to relaxing and being with family. I know I will have some great pictures to post when we return.
