Butterfly kisses

Annie was a yeller today for her therapists--she pretty much hollered for all three of them. Not good for your ears, but indicative of her desire to control her environment. (More dynamic behavior!)

I came in to the living room this afternoon when she was having a more calm moment, and her little mouth curved up into a smile when I greeted her. Annie doles out these smiles so sparingly, that when she DOES smile, it's a red-letter day. So there I was, so happy that she was smiling at me that I knelt down to give her a kiss. I said, "Annie, can I give you a kiss? I love it when you smile at Mommy." And just then, she pursed her lips and made a kissing noise to me!

That'll keep me going for at least a week.

Lord, thank You for sweet Annie, and the girl You are growing her to be. You are doing amazing things in that little body, and I praise you for each "red letter" day. I praise you also for holding the Sullivans in the palm of your hand on those not so good days. Hugs and Kisses to You, Abba. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Bill....is there a symbol that you could add to Annie's blog to indidcates, "Caution, Kleenex may be needed"?

Thank you Jean for letting us in on your most precious of moments. We rejoice with you on this red-letter day and we ask for many more!
