You will not believe what my son did today! Here, let me show you:
Yes. We had went to the house we are buying and I was in the kitchen looking at something and I heard the click of Kevin's seat belt being undone. I know him well enough to know that that meant trouble. With a capital T. I ran to the stairwell leading to the second floor and there was Kevin already standing up on the second step! He was so determined to see the second floor that I had to follow him up the stairs just to catch him in case he started to fall. I allowed him to rest his body on mine with each step and let me tell you - he did it! I was scared and proud of him all at once. And you should have seen his face when he made it to the top! He was just grinning from ear to ear until he realized he had to come back down! But he sat on his butt and bumped down each step until he stood up at the bottom and got back into his chair. I tell ya - he is gonna be the death of me yet (have I not been saying this since he was born?)!! Hopefully this will alleviate any more curiosity of the second floor. (these pics were taken with my phone as I was not leaving him alone up there to grab my camera)
And my meetings went very well today. Dennis, one of the VA guys, is truly such a great help. He offers insight into things that I truly just wouldn't even think of. George, one of my realtors, is the same. We all know that this has been such a trying time in purchasing a home, but these two have done so much to make it easier on me. I thank them both - truly.
Kevin did seem to do well on his own today too. He is getting into a routine of sorts and it's working out well for him. For both of us really. Unfortunately I have to leave him for a while again on Wed to meet with JAG on some legal issues so hopefully his therapists will keep him busy.
Well, it's off to bed for me!
