Williams Syndrome Wednesday: Hand Claps

The little miss has started clapping her hands, initiating peek-a-boo and ‘saying’ a couple of words. We think she says “hi”, “Daddy” and “done”. Still not sure if they are intentional words or just sounds that kind of sound like words but regardless, it’s progress.

It seems like Obi’s development plateaus then leaps forward – all three of the above are a big, big deal. It’s hard to find the time amidst all the management and logistics and worry and fear to celebrate. But these week, we make time.

The little miss claps to show pleasure, plays a game to laugh and make you laugh and is beginning to communicate with her little voice and not just grunts and a couple of signs.

It’s amazing! And I’m loving every minute of it.
