A Little Something Extra

Big week

Monday 3/2 - Matthew's actual due date
Tuesday 3/3 - Matthew turned one month
Thursday 3/5 - Micah turned 14 months

Here's a fun video of Micah. The side-to-side movement is not lack of strength... it's his version of dancing. And he doesn't use the boppy behind him to prop on at all. I have it there for my own peace to be able to leave him sitting alone for a minute or two. video

The past two weeks have been pretty cool for Micah. He's learned how to yank off his socks, pivot on his belly, do "so big," clap his hands, and "dance" on demand. He also got his first haircut (other than me trimming off the front last fall). His annual assessment is coming up this month. Please pray for my peace with the results.

I have many other pictures to post, but I'll have to do that later as the bed is calling me, especially given the loss of an hour of sleep tonight.

Hi Jennie - I have been following your blog for a while and thought I would say hi. Micah is doing so well and is so cute!

My little boy Joel has Down Syndrome and is 20 months old. He loves to dance too and does it in a similar way!

Thanks for sharing about your family. I have enjoyed getting to know you!

Thanks for posting this adorable video of Micah. I love the part where he does the "so big" move! It cheers my heart to see what things might soon be coming my way with my daughter (8 mo and working on sitting). The dancing part... did he just start doing that or is it a learned movement? Does he do it to music? It is so cute... the wiggle dance.

Love the new 'do! Very cute video, thanks for sharing! I hope all goes well with the assessment. I know it's hard when they aren't where we're hoping they'd be, but remember how far he's come! That's what I keep focusing on with M...not comparing her to her sisters or to other kids her age, but to how much she's grown and improved in the past year. :-)

He is growing up so fast and I must say is one of the CUTEST little boys I've ever seen.

Thanks for sharing the video...it's so nice to see the kids I read about in action once in awhile. I love it!
