Today is very mixed with emotions. Even as I'm writing this, I'm thinking about how great the day was and how special it was that Rachel was here to be a part of it. I dropped her off at the airport today. Sigh. On the way to the airport, I let my mind run through all that has happened in the last week and all we've gotten to share. It's been great! God is so good and his timing is perfect! I just love her being here and miss her so much already!
When we got to the hospital this morning, Cale was actually able to say a few words with voice, rather than just singing. I was thinking this morning how I can't wait for him to get to the point that he can share his thoughts, instead of just being told what to say. Well...after dropping Rach off, I went straight to the hospital to cuddle :) and asked Cale to think of something he wanted to tell me and use his voice. At first he shrugged his shoulders and opened his mouth but nothing came out. I started singing with him so he could hear his voice and then asked him to say what he was thinking. When he said it, I didn't understand, but he said it lots for me and I kept guessing...finally I heard it better. "Kiss me?" I asked. He raised his hand in the air and nodded yes! Woohoo! I shouted! Awe! So sweet! I love him!
There are so many things the Lord is doing and I love getting to watch and be excited for every step! I'm so thankful for how far God has brought Cale and I know He's got so much more planned!
Today we conquered another mountain (on top of all the others we're conquering!). Cale, Rachel, and I hopped in the Honda and headed for ice cream! This is the first outing with out a therapist! Yikes! the whole drive there, I felt so overwhelmed with joy! Can you believe it?! Yesterday we have our first ice cream at the hospital with out a therapist and today we have our first outing to get ice cream with out a therapist!! Not to mention we're singing while doing it!
We're in the car and ready to take off! Ice cream here we come!!!
Mmm! Cale loved his so much, he wanted more!
The only words to describe what my heart is feeling...
I'm thanking you, God, from a full heart, I'm writing the book on your wonders. I'm whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy; I'm singing your song, High God. Psalm 9:2 (The Message)
Here's another video!!!!!!! This one is Cale singing "Happy Birthday". He's getting ready for his birthday coming up! :)
