(Almost) Wordless Sunday

Life continues to move at a pace faster than we can process.

Rest assured that despite our silence, good things are happening.  (In fact, too many good things might be the best way to describe it.)

Given the speed with which we're moving, it's important take a moment from time to time to appreciate the "little things."

I've been on the road almost continuously for many months now,  but I've found myself watching this video from the past month over and over, drawing from it a kind of strength that only flows from child to parent:

I hope you enjoy:


  1. Wow! I'm speechless! Bertrand has such light in his eyes; I love his smile when he gets the ball. Isn't it wonderful to see your kids enjoy one another's company, to think that you've created a loving relationship just by having them?

  2. This is absolutely beautiful! I love every bit of it. One miracle after another.

  3. You 5 must be so proud, great video of Bertrand and Winston J walking!

  4. This is such an inspiring video of how much Bertrand has improved. How engaged he is with Wibston! Love it. Besos y abrazos de parte de Abi y Titi Lili

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this! I am a PhD student at the U and am hoping to focus on increasing communication through meaningful play for children severe and multiple disabilities including deafblindness. This is such a great example of turn-taking, shared interest, and pacing. If you haven't already, you might want to check out , , and for ideas for activities.
