Big has had some personal breakthroughs lately and I couldn’t be happier!
First, this happened:
Him eating a rib is a breakthrough?
The fact that he’s eating it with his hands is!
You see, Big has always felt a little anxiety at getting his hands dirty with food.
While other toddlers were experiencing finger foods, big was experimenting with forks and spoons.
So when he picked up a rib at ribfest and let loose – it literally brought tears to my eyes.
And when he was done eating, and the meat juice was all over his hands and arms, he casually picked up a napkin, cleaned himself and asked to get to a sink. No sign of the panic ridden ‘get it off me!’ that we’d become accustomed to.
It was a Christmas miracle in September indeed.
Then, this happened. He’s on two wheels!
