Today Mama was a little discouraged after reading about other babies your age with ds who are already waving. I wondered if I was not doing enough "therapy" with you, and what I could do differently to help you. I went back and read the speech that helped me the other night and thought about those words...expect, don't accept.
And I decided to embrace those words...and teach you to wave. You were lying on the floor watching me- waving frantically- and you were grinning ear to ear at me...it sort of looked like you were thinking "Mommy, you are crazy, but I'm going to smile at you cuz I love you so much."
Expect, don't accept.
And then out of the blue...I got this...
And yes, the video quality is awful, because my camera wasn't charged, and all I had on hand was my phone camera.. but I still caught your sweet little waving!!
So that's what I get.
That's what I get for expecting, not accepting:)
