Itsy Bitsy Spider...The Wheels on the Bus...Twinkle Twinkle Little Star...The Elephant Song...these are some of the many songs we sing at Jack's group therapy at ICEC. We also sing them at home, along with a slew of others. Along with each song, there are hand gestures. Jack has been doing the Itsy Bitsy Spider for about a month now, and slowly he has been experimenting with the others. Well tonight, I had a truly endearing moment. Just before bed, my girls and I sat with Jack for some singing. He imitated EVERY SINGLE SONG with gestures...every one! Each time we finished, he'd turn around and look at his daddy with a look of satisfaction and giggle like there was no tomorrow...so proud of himself! My girls cheered their little buddy on the entire time...I just kept thinking to myself, with my family all sitting together enjoying this small, but monumental moment, that it doesn't get any better than this right here...and it doesn't. We are blessed.
