This is what I get for messing around on facebook this morning. Yes, I know these are the same pajamas from yesterdays post. I just washed them yesterday morning, and was too lazy to walk the basket upstairs and put it away. Then when night time rolled around I thought, "Hey look there's some jammies in that basket, I don't have to go upstairs to get them.....score!!!"
Also, don't ask me about the whole caveman look, apparently when your spinal cord is all fixed it makes your fine and gross motor skills blossom, which means you learn how to strip. I have never seen Rhett so happy and full of life, nor have I ever seen him get into so many things and cause so much destruction. He is simply amazing. I look at him in awe each day amazed that he is still here with us.
This mess was created in Daddy's chair, and we had to video it to send to him. Only the mom of a child (or children) with special needs would realize how cool this is that your child is healthy enough to make a mess, and grab the camera to record the memory.
Also, watch towards the end of the movie at how high he is lifting his legs. He could NOT do this 3 weeks ago before his spinal surgery. It amazes me the things that he can do now with those legs. I bet he could totally wrap them around his head if he wanted to.
We are so blessed to have such an amazing family. I wouldn't trade our lives for anything. It's so fun to watch my kids grow up. Each one of my older kids does so much around the house to help me. Even Chloee pitches in and helps with extra chores. I always hope that they don't grow up to resent the fact that Andy and I have had to put so much time and energy into Rhett and his medical issues.
I try the best I can to make sure that they all know that they are loved equally, and each one of them holds a special place in my heart. Rhett has brought so much joy to their lives, and I really think that they are better kids because of everything they have been through.
Granted no child should ever have to go through or see what they have.
It has all been worth it though because Rhett is on the road to being healthy, and soon we will be able to do things that typical families do. It's going to happen because I belive.
How could I not believe in a face like this?
