As of yesterday, at 13 months, our sweet Nate is sitting!
It has been a long journey to get to this point. He is a very wiggly guy, so sitting in one spot just has not been an interest of his, but yesterday, just like that, he was sitting.
And today, the overwhelming feeling I've had for Nate is RESPECT. Yes, I'm full of pride and happy that he has a new view of life, but the true feeling I'm bursting with is respect. I am just so impressed with how hard he has worked to get this far. He barely complains and just works as hard as anyone around him will make him. He whines a bit when he gets tired, but, hey, I'm a Personal Trainer and most of the people I've worked with would have quit long before Nate.
(don't you just want to kiss that face?!)
I'm learning so much from him and am seeing very clearly one of the reasons God placed him in our family. Nate is here to remind us to strive for our goals and to appreciate the smaller achievements along the way.
Nate, thank you. I love you more than I ever thought I could.
