"Mommy, I Don't Want To."

Having recently reached the four year milestone of motherhood, I've heard this phrase, "Mommy, I don't want to..." more times than I could even begin to count. But I've never heard Lily say it. She doesn't sign it. So how does she communicate her lack of interest?

It doesn't happen much. Lily is pretty content to go with the flow of things. If she does have some objection, usually she shows it by not cooperating with an activity. Or by detaching her various trach attachments (a fairly big no-no in our home, go figure). But not last night. Last night was different. Last night was special. Last night was monumental.

Lily decided to show she didn't want to do tummy time on Mommy's chest by... slowly pushing herself into a supported sitting position for the first time ever.

There are no words for how good this feels.
