A reason to celebrate


I had a tearful moment as a mom today and I couldn't be more thrilled. Peyton who struggles with all of his motor skills jumped over a brick at physical therapy today. The therapist and I cried tears of joy watching him meet a goal he has been working on for well over a year. Everyone in the room cheered. Peyton was so happy he wanted to do it again and again. He jumped all the way to the car. I know to many of you jumping is not a big deal, and most kids are jumping off furniture, off curbs, and even out of the car. For Peyton just learning to walk took a three years and 3 physical therapists. He has always had a great and willing spirit about him. He does what ever they ask and smiles through the tears. He melts my heart, I am so pleased with all he does. He is our miracle and continues to surprise us everyday.
