We had a weekend of beautiful weather in Pittsburgh. It was nearly 70 degrees on Saturday, which is very unusual for February! It was such a nice break from the cold weather!
After Dylan's basketball game on Saturday, the kids (+1..because we always have an extra or two or three) piled into the SUV, and we headed to the park. Everybody was there and everybody had Spring Fever!
Liam was on his feet, running and climbing, the entire time. He got in some great PT work (and exhausted his mom). The only time he slowed down was when I put him in the swing!
I finally got to meet Dylan and Lexie's classmate, who is also rocking an extra chromosome. I could immediately tell why they love him so much! His dad kept commenting on how exceptional Liam's gross motor skills were. I think that was his polite way of saying that Liam is VERY active!
It was so nice chatting with another parent who has more experience on this Down syndrome journey. A few other parents ended up joining in on the conversation. As we watched our kids of all abilities and ages play a game together so nicely, we had a great discussion on how wonderful inclusion is for children. It really was uplifting to watch and it gave me so much hope for Liam's future!
We stayed at the park until the sun started lowering in the sky.
And when all else fails, just swing until you drop!
We had such a wonderful weekend. This beautiful, warm weather was very much needed after a week of snow and cold! I'm not going to lie. I really am bummed about winter returning!
How is the weather where you live?
