family museum and let me say this momma LOVED this place! It is high on my list of must do more than once in our area. It was fabulous. The fact that Jillian actually played for four hours just sweetens how amazing this place is because today was the first day that I feel like my girl had a typical experience. She had no fear..that is right absolutely no fear of anything. She signed scared once when we were getting out of the car, but that is it. She never said she was scared the rest of the day..not even once! She went right into the gallery area with Daddy and instantly began exploring! She played and she played and she played. She laughed and ran and played and conquered every inch of this place. I feel like I say often when trying to write about Jill that I have no words, but today I feel that way once again. I simply never, ever dreamed that this sweet treasure would accomplish so much. As I walked beside her today in each of the learning modules and watched her playing like her typical peers, I could hardly keep from bawling my eyes out remembering the 15 pound 25 month old I once held praying she would just survive. This girl is something extraordinary.
(Anna Mei had a great time too! She was adorable and loved playing in the pizza kitchen and grocery store best. I will post her pictures soon.)
