I thought I would chime in with my own list because this has been an amazing year for Miss Ashlea.
In the last year she has:
- learnt to crawl
- learnt to W sit
- learnt HEAPS of words - to the point where she can now tell you what she wants (sometimes). Eg take shoes off, I play toys, I love Mummy/Daddy/turtle etc.
- not had a hospital admission (!!!)
- learnt to point (she has just learnt this in the last few weeks). She doesn't point with her finger, rather she flings her whole hand in the direction of what she is pointing at. Good enough for me.
- had stable kidney function - no deterioration this year - always a good thing
So, Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends, and happy not-thanksgiving-but-we-still-want-to-give-thanks-for-our-children's-progress' to my Australian and other non-US friends. It would be remiss of me not to mention the One it is that we give this thanks to - our great God - the One loves and sustains us each and every day.
