Video – Playing with Stars!

Lydia is a very still child. She doesn’t kick her legs, play with her feet or reach out for objects. Her vision is sporadic at best and she never blinks if you go to poke her eye (Jack tests this every so often). Lydia never seeks out play. But last night something amazing happened. Jack and I built a living room fort and added a string of Ikea star lights. I set Lydia down in the fort for a moment and when I came back she was batting at the stars with her fist, trying to get them in her mouth and even looking at them. Playing! Our girl was playing! With stars!
