Milestones

All kids reach milestones.  They get teeth, lose teeth, learn to walk, go to Kindergarten and ....


...after months of practice and strategy, they learn to climb the door frame.  Oh yes this has been a very big deal in our house this week.  


The PT in me cringes when I see the position of his left leg, but I am setting that aside to cheer with my boy and his new skill.


The final goal was to touch his head to the top of the door frame.  Mission accomplished. 


It's when ordinary people rise above the expectations and seize the opportunity that milestones truly are reached.

Ahk! This is what I have to look forward to! Or it is already happening... Ian shimmied up the column in our house and touched the ceiling! And he can climb up one side of the door frame, actually... his legs aren't long enough to do it quite like Sam.
