Cute as a Button

When you have a child who has experienced developmental delays, each milestone they reach brings you indescribable pride and joy. Last night, my almost-five-year-old daughter (who has had gross and fine motor delays since infancy) buttoned an article of clothing herself for the very first time. It was the top of her favorite Small Paul Julius Pajama set ($49.95 at SandboxCouture.com), given to us as a hand-me-down from a friend (thanks, Stacey and Ro). I nearly cried when I saw her do this, totally unsolicited, with a huge grin on her face even though it was a struggle for her. I am so proud of her!
