Calm Amongst the Chaos

Mama of 5 seeking calm in the chaos

I was sitting with my laptop on my lap writing a post, a lot of complaining about me getting strep (again!), then having an allergic reaction to an antibiotic (bad!), but while I am writing and talking to Andrew on the phone (yes I am that talented) I see out of the corner of my eye, Lily’s head pop up. Lily was lying on the floor rolling around like usual and all of a sudden she is sitting up. My first reaction was, I must have left her sitting up? Right? But no, I specifically remember her not wanting to sit up. So then I’m yelling to Andrew, “she just sat up!” he of course doesn’t believe me and questions what I questioned myself and then says he’ll buy her an ice cream. Then there she sat with this little smile on her face. Don’t think we aren’t confident in this beautiful girl, we are, but we have worked with this since she was 2. We have worked on the steps with her forever and then out of the blue she just sits up? It’s pretty freaking awesome! Just teaches us to never EVER think she won’t learn something. I am mean and put her back to the floor and have my camera out, I will catch this on camera, well if she wants me to I guess! 🙂
(and to think I am home with her to see this!)

    Hi. I just came across your blog. I have enjoyed learning about your sweet girl. My Abby is 4 and has classic Rett.Funny, I was showing a few people how she has relearned how to roll over a few weeks ago. It has been over a year since she has rolled over. I put her on her belly and then I left to answer the phone. While I was gone, everyone (except me) saw her not only roll over, but she sat up BY HERSELF!
