"Y'all - don't miss it. Don't get so caught up in what your sweet baby is doing or not doing. Don't obsess about this step or the next step or the one after that or what is going to happen twenty years down the line. Because one day you'll look at baby pictures and think about how adorable that baby was and how all you can remember is therapy and you can't even remember what her hair smelled like. So, ENJOY your baby. It doesn't matter when they walk or crawl or talk. It matters that they are here and that you love them and that they know it. Just don't miss it."
This was Finn's lunch today. A sandwich. Peanut butter and honey on whole wheat bread.
He has come so far with eating. It doesn't seem all that long ago that I was crying over avocados (okay, so it was six months ago), feeling pretty hopeless about his feeding issues and wondering if he'd ever eat table food. He eats pretty much everything now. He even swiped a slice of pepperoni pizza off the table when my back was turned last week, and he ate the whole thing.
Our cupboards are not bare of baby food just yet. I still resort to it when I need to get him fed quickly, because the truth is, it took him a solid half hour to eat that sandwich. But he ate it. All by himself.
On July 7, 2008 our sixth child, Finnian, was born at home into loving hands. Shortly after he was born, we learned that he has Down syndrome. This is the ongoing story of how our family is being transformed by this little boy.
Hi! I'm Lisa, a 40-something Wonder Mom to six kiddos: Kevin (14), Joey (9), twins, Annabelle and Daisy (6), Lilah (4) and Finnian (3). Oh, and my husband is the multi-talented Michael. He tries to keep me in check, but I just keep on writing.
