I know that since time is kind of my enemy and we have spent so much time catching up in Elizabeth’s life, I mark the passing of time by events, like holidays or the start of a new school year or a vacation. I always compare one trip to the next. I watch how she acts and plays and how she does in all the public places we go.
I love when I can see growth, I love when I can say to myself ” Hey, she would not have tried that last year”or ” I am so proud of how she acted or talked”
This trip gave me so many of those “Hey” moments. I look at her and I see such a beautiful child. I was so proud of how she acted this week. I know there is more work to do but I know she has changed and grown and that is a great take-away!
