Springing Into Spring,...

Isaac is five years old and celebrating his fifth spring,... 


With a little dirt on his hand,...which is a HUGE development,
talk about springing forward with sensory issues,...

Mud?
Isaac and mud?
Icky, gooey, ooey, mud?
Yep,...Isaac's been all about playing in mud 
this very wet spring we're experiencing.


And yes, I have to hose our little guy down after a play session in the yard,
but who cares,...little boys and mud are made for each other.


When's he's not been playing in the mud,
Isaac's been helping in the yard,...kinda.

Pssssst,...don't tell Isaac put the lawn mower is broken,
that's the only reason he's getting to play with it,
but he thinks he's mowing,
and pretend play,
YES, PLEASE,....we'll take that developmental development all day long!!!



Here is Isaac either pretending to take Mama's picture,
or mocking Mama,...'cause she's always taking pictures,
but again,...pretend, pretend, pretend,
it is a HUGE developmental milestone,
which has taken our little guy quite a while to reach,...


Shared experiences are becoming more and more common,
and yes, I tear up,...having my little guy bring me flowers,
and dandelions,...is something I didn't think would ever happen,...
we are so very, very grateful for every single advance our little guy is making!


Discovering dandelions,....priceless!!!


Also good motor control therapy,....


But, I didn't tell Isaac,...he was actually working on his speech skills.


I jus kept snapping pictures,...and he kept trying to blow the downey seeds into the wind,...


It took a while,...


Quite a while,...


You have to admire tenacity,...


Even in the face of a stubborn dandelion,...


But, Isaac is Isaac,...and he doesn't give up,...



Even when he's running out of breath,...he keeps on,...


And then climbs a tree,...


Oh dear,...Isaac is a climber and has already mastered every tree in our backyard,
within his height and grasp, 
and a few that aren't,...
Still climbing exercises motor processing skills,...i.e. therapy,
Great therapy as with motor processing,
one skills, laps onto another,...
and as we plan to eliminate, a couple handhold branches on more precarious trees,
once all this rain stops,...Isaac will be safe enough to climb all he pleases,
it's therapy and FUN!!!!

Hoping everyone out there is Springing into Spring with as much fun as Isaac,...

Until I post again,...God bless and keep you!
