Celebrate: 10 things

Here is a post dedicated to 10 things I love about Samuel (in no particular order):

  1. His gorgeous big blue eyes and his absolutely incredible eyelashes. When people meet him for the first time I give them 10 seconds before they notice his lashes. They are ridiculously long.
  2. His gorgeous squeezable cheeks and beautiful shape of his mouth.
  3. His hands. His fingers are like cute little sausages and his thumbs have this really cute dimple at the bottom that I like to squidge.
  4. When you cuddle him he turns into you and purrs.
  5. His knees, he has the most gorgeous, squishy knees.
  6. His toes and toenails. They may sometimes be a bit cheesy but they are so damn cute you just want to nibble them (despite the cheese).
  7. Sometimes when you move him he does this sweet stretch where he looks like a little Superman about to fly.
  8. When he burps.
  9. When he yawns and looks like he’s going to swallow up the room with him.
  10. His smell.

I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea!

This post is part of the Celebrate Blogging Challenge. This world of special needs and disabilities has many rocky roads, we will find ourselves on many rollercoasters along the way. But, there are a lot of positives. Through our adventures so far, we have met a lot of amazing, supportive people. It has made us stronger. We have learned to look at the world through new, wider eyes and find ourselves celebrating what to others may seem such a small achievement but to us, it’s the world. It’s a tough world, but there is so much to celebrate. Our children. So please join me each week and post about what there is to celebrate in your world during the past week. I’m looking forward to reading your posts and celebrating with you.

If you meet Samuel

If you were to meet Samuel, I’d ask just a few things of you.

Whether he is sleeping, awake, or even on his food pump, come over to him and hold his hand. Samuel is good at holding hands. Stroke his hands and look at his beautiful little fingers.

Look into his big beautiful blue eyes and if he’s having a snooze, look at his beautiful long dark eyelashes.

Stroke his hair and feel how soft it is and see what a lovely blonde colour it is.

Talk to him. Tell him about yourself. He may not obviously react to you, but I’m sure he would know you were there. Chat to him.

If you can, give him a cuddle. Scoop him up and bring him into you. Listen to him purr as he leans into you. Feel the warmth of his cuddly little body.

If he has a seizure while he is in your arms, just pull him in closer to you. Let him feel safe and loved. The is the best of all his medicines.

If you get to have a Samuel cuddle, you’ll quickly understand how powerful his cuddles truly are and I promise you, he will touch your heart.

But please don’t look at him with sadness. He is so very loved and I believe in his own way he is a very content and happy little fellow.
