Sitting Together at Sammie's (now, by default, "their") little table
I promise, the look of disdain on Sammie B's face is directed at the sandwich we insisted she have if she wanted Halloween candy, not at her sister!
Hugs (oh the hugs!! This is now how Mia likes to begin her day, every day, with a hug and kiss from her big sister!)
Back when Sammie B was at her EI center-based program, I often tried the parallel bars with her, but she needed maximum support and assistance. That was well over a year ago. A few weeks ago, we had a substitute PT while ours was on vacation, and they got the parallel bars out to try again. Sammie B's nanny was super excited to report that Sam did FABULOUSLY with them, and even took a "step or two." So, last week when I got to go to Sammie B 's PT appointment and my little lady WALKED THE LENGTH OF THOSE BARS ALL BY HERSELF, my heart soared, and my eyes filled with tears . . . Oh my lady. Progress. Determination. Perserverance. She's got it all.
Lunches with sisters, painting, hugs, parallel bars, progress . . . these are a few of our favorite things!
(Not so favorite -- the fact that I'm typing this at 1 am during a quick BREAK from the brief I have to finish by tomorrow am before the partners wake up! Eek. Back at it!)
