Having special needs children is always about celebrating the small things in life. You learn to appreciate moments. I remember celebrating when Zak first found toys, When Callie first smiled, When either one slept for more than 4 hours, when they first tolerated a whole therapy session. These are the moments we celebrate.
Today I pulled in the driveway. The windows were open and the therapist was already here for Callie. I thought it was another typical day in the Teeters house. I could hear laughter and co-motion, but 2 nurses and a therapist - I did not think much. Then I walked in the basement door and the noise was louder as I thought to myself what the heck is going on. This sounds like an exciting session. I got to the top of the steps to hear pounding, Laughter and major excitement. What is going on? Zak was crawling!!! I started to cry. I was so excited and the dreams were coming true.. our little boy is figuring out how to get around other then rolling and scooting. I have dreamt of seeing him do this since the day he was born. We have watched him take a few steps here and there, but nothing like this. It was truly amazing. All I could do was stare, smile and cry! This was the second time today he did this. Way to go Zak.
