Again Callie has amazed us. She came home with a spelling test this week that her teacher allowed her to take orally. She spelled - bought, spread, grocery, these, write and emergency perfectly! A+ 100% This coming from the girl who might not walk, didn't speak at all till she was past 3 yrs. old etc. etc. etc.
The other day she was turning the lamp on - just carefully turning the knob. This may not sound amazing to anyone else, but to us, this is completely amazing. Just a year ago she was throwing lamps down or across the room on a fairly regular basis.
It is a great thing to remind ourselves of the humongous strides she has made. It's so easy to get bogged down on what she is unable to do, or the behaviors you fear will never go away - especially as she gets bigger and we get older. Those are legitimate fears, however, I remind myself of the biblical wisdom in Matthew 6:34 which states "Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it's own." - Amen to that!
