6 Months

Part of me can't believe it's been a year already.  Zachary was due for his 1 year re-evaluation at therapy this week.  They did a myriad of tests on him and afterwards this gives them a look at his progress but also gives an "age" where he measures up. (Skills, development, etc.)  I had a guess of 6 months in my head, just according to what he's doing.  So in a way I wasn't surprised when she said it. To actually hear the words that my almost 18 month old is at a 6-8 month old level is still hard, even when it's expected.  Wouldn't you know but later that day a friend posted on her facebook that her 16 month old just started walking.  I just get angry sometimes.  Angry & Jealous.  Wrong?  Yes.  But it's the truth.  No matter how much I tell myself not to compare, it's just so natural to do!

But - like I've said before, I don't find myself wallowing in self-pity long.  Life goes on, and I get over it.  I hold my sweet little boy in my arms and thank God for him.  

Speaking of, I think Zachary's awake upstairs.

My eyes are ever on the LORD,
