Patience

I have been very deliquent in updating my blog. It seems like there are not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything I want! I am not a very patient person, I want things done NOW! Kellan has been very good for teaching me to be more patient. He just takes his time and accomplishes things at his own pace. For instance, I remember back in January telling the physical therapist in Denver that I was frustrated that he was still having such a hard time holding his head up. I laugh at myself now, as he is almost 8 months old and just really getting to the point where he has good head control! So I have slowed down, learned not to expect too much of him, knowing he'll get to each thing, reach each milestone, just at his own pace. And that's ok. Then he surprises us by doing something really well, that we didn't expect. Like yesterday, his occupational therapist decided to try him with a straw. He won't be able to use a sippy cup, due to the tongue thrust that goes along with it, so he will learn to drink through a straw. He did amazing!! Like he knew just what to do! I was so proud of him!
He is still just a little guy, but growing more attentive every day. His stamina has also improved greatly. He can make it through a whole hour of therapy without complaining, and then not sleeping the rest of the day! He has mastered playing with his feet, and even sucking his thumb at the same time! So sweet!!
In other kid news---Shelby is about to end her 2nd grade life, and is in a play tomorrow that she is the story teller for and VERY excited!! Tobin is graduating from preschool tomorrow as well, and he is pretty excited to sing for us! Morgan is one year from graduating! Oh my! She is already talking about senior pictures! She has a job at the younger kids' daycare-Tobin likes having her there! Justin and I and Kellan are headed to Denver next week-Wed-Sun. Kellan sees the PT on Thurs then we are just going to hang out and relax!
Check out Kellans video-it's pretty cute!
