I want you to know that I'm always here for you. Moms are kind of important people (thank you very much). We are a source of great knowledge, wisdom, and infinite love. Use me. Ok? Good.
So, remember when I was feeling so sad? I talked to my mom...Grandma. And you know what? All she did was listen, and then after all the listening, she said one little sentence that somehow made me see everything differently ~ or begin to. And, I feel like I'm moving back up to where I was feeling before. Like I said, moms are kind of great.
Then, the next day, after writing that letter to you, something pretty awesome happened. We saw Tiffany. You know, she's your OT. I'm glad you like her because she adores you. At least she really seems to. You were up for your 6 month evaluation, and do you know what? You rocked it. We could only do part of the evaluation because Tiff and I were talking so much and you were enjoying the swing so much, so she just kept you on as she worked on your balance. ANYway. Did you know that only 1 year ago, one of your goals was to put a small-ish object into a bowl/bucket, hand over hand, with minimal assistance? A year ago, you didn't want your hands touched. You didn't want to be directed. You were a tad challenging, my dear. But on Tuesday, you took 6 small blocks and put them in the bucket, by yourself!
By yourself Sammy!!!
I cried happy tears. I felt like a dork, but I couldn't hold it back. And then Tiffany teared up too.
You have such a light about you Sammy, and I just know that as you continue to progress and gain better control of your body, you will be able to express what is in your heart. You have left a mark on this world Samantha Lee. And you have a bright future ahead.
I love you so much. I'm totally smitten.
