Amber thoroughly made my day today . . .
I’m home with the kiddos today. This afternoon Ryan suggested a video chat with Amber and Daddy. I give them a call and Matt informs me that Amber had just fallen asleep (whoops!). As we’re talking, Amber wakes up, so Matt brings the phone over to her. As usual, I’m kissing into the phone and blowing her kisses. Matt says “Amber, can you blow Mama some kisses back?”. As I watch what happens next, I’m stunned. Amber is not only making the kiss noise (more movement than actual noise) but her beautiful little right hand comes up towards her mouth at the same time! Not quite all the way because her hand is restrained (she wants to scratch her healing head all the time). So, Matt frees her hand and asks her to do it again — AND SHE DOES — she brings that little hand all the way up to her mouth and blows me kisses!!! WHAT?? I am still shocked so I ask “Has she been doing this all day with you?” and he says “This is completely new, right now, what she’s doing with you!!”
I am STILL in disbelief right now even as I write this. Thank you Ryan for suggesting the video call. Thank you Amber for doing something new and amazing today. And Thank you God, for making this little miracle happen.
