the amazing Ben
I'm sure to most of you there is nothing amazing about this video. It's a kid, sitting and putting things in his mouth while his mother talks like an idiot.
But what you're not catching is that this little boy, just 6 months and 3 weeks ago did nothing but sleep, eat, cry and soil his diaper. It is amazing to watch a newborn grow and develop. First he learned he could hold things, then that he could switch those things hand to hand. He learned to push his chest off the ground while on his tummy. Now he slightly rocks on his knees and scootches backwards. And one day, after weeks of propping him up, sitting him in his baby chair and pointing out other babies who could sit by themselves, he could just do it. All by himself, he could sit and play. Amazing.
It's a reminder to me that the littlest victories are still significant and to be celebrated. And that I should be grateful everyday for my babes, my healthy babes.
