|Our Little Water Boy|
His therapist from ECI would tell us that development came in a particular order. He would have to master his motor skills, both gross and fine before spoken language could be mastered. He had a long way to go. We were still trying to get him to eat with a utensil, hold an open cup to drink from and suck threw a straw. He was able to walk upstairs, but not down yet and unable to jump. It was heart breaking to watch him trying to jump. We knew he wanted to and just couldn't get his feet of the ground. It was going to be a slow road a go.
The funny thing is about his personality was all said in his name. I had a hard time trying to find out what his name actually meant when he was a baby. I ordered a Birthday Keepsake that had the information about his birthday day and it included the meaning of his name. My husband and I weren't suprized to read that his first name means "Slow Moving Stream". He was definaltly like a slow moving stream. The one thing I think about a slow moving stream is that they start out slow and as they move along their path then the end becomes a roaring wide river. I know that Beckett will one day overcome his obsticles and become a strong determined individual that has many gifts to offer this world. That is my prayer for him and I know that God will be faithful to answer it.
