Elise has never given us high fives before, no matter how much we practiced with her. Elise was in one of her really silly moods and I held my hand out for a high five and surprisingly she hit it! I cheered and she loved that attention so every time after that she gave me high fives. Way to go Elise!
This video cracks me up because at the end I realized I was holding Bryn's sucker in my other hand and Elise couldn't concentrate on anything else but the sucker I was holding. She does give a quick high five in here but did more before I got the video camera.
Elise's OT came into the waiting room asking what all the cheering and laughing was for. I told her Elise said her version of "hi" to everyone there.
She did it 4 times!!!!
After every time she said it, I could tell she was super proud of herself because she had the biggest smile on her face and she just giggled like crazy. It was one of the cutest, sweetest, most proud moments I have had. We all cheered for her. I love how even all the people in the waiting room didn't even know her but their attention was only on her and watching her succeed.
I LOVE being a mom to my 5 kids; one with special needs. There is no greater joy than being a parent! I love each one individually but this blog will mostly focus on our daughter with special needs and our journey with her. Thanks for reading!
