At least five times this past week the topic of what Quinn is doing has come up in conversation. So what new things is Quinn doing? Is she walking? Crawling? Feeding herself? Etc. etc. etc. Ok there has been some new things - she, of course, has great posture (she loves to sit) and she doesn't just randomly fall over to lay on the floor - at least she eases herself down now. No crawling yet, but some stretching and forward sliding across the floor. She will stand by furniture if you place her there. But overall, I have very limited responses to this subject when asked because not a lot has happened.
Tonight I was thinking about this, and I vow at least for today that I don't care about these milestones. Quinn is Quinn. She is healthy. She is happy. She is here. Nothing like having a friend realize that their chid has leukemia to put these things into perspective. Isn't this what is really important? So at least today I will think this way, hopefully tomorrow and the next day I will too. But I will likely relapse in the milestone-itis. It is inevitable, but I will just go back to this post when I do. I will remind myself that Quinn will get there when she gets there. I love her no matter what. And she is happy, healthy, and here.
