The Secret Life of Seabass

4 May

We pray over meals in our house, and have included Seabass ever since he started solid food.  But our eyes have always been closed – we had no idea what Seabass was doing while we thanked God for the food.

Until now.

Jake set up the camera to take this video before dinner one evening.

We showed this to Jake’s cousin, Christy, who is a third grade teacher.  She laughed for a minute, but then she turned serious.  “Does he make eye contact?” she queried.  “Does he avoid physical touch?”

I saw her angle right away.  This video is either a side-splitting document of  Seabass’ strange secret life, or…. our first evidence that something is horribly, horribly wrong.  I vote for the former.

This post is dedicated to Aunt Pauline.  We are thinking about you and praying for you, Seabass included.

    What? I would never think there was something wrong for that video. He’s being adorable and silly. Its not unlike what I would do if I had to pray around the table =)

    Hazel just had her two year wellness check. It was the usual weight, height (your daughter is a giant) and then asking questions about her development, as I tell all the stories of her reading to herself, playing golf, speaking in sentences, and asking What’s this? about everything. After I was done being a proud mother, our Dr. says “well she right on track and has passed the risk of autism” Wait what? but then I was no longer in my Mommy brain, and switched to my child therapist brain and realized how far we have come in understanding this disorder, that we are able to screen early, by the age of two, and offer families early intervention to reduce the impact of autism on a child’s life, and the family’s.

    Hi Jake and Jaime, That was the most adorable video ever! (Don’t I have a cute grandnephew!!) Wish I could have seen him last week, but I hear it was a fun time. Thanks for your prayers (and the dedication of the post. I’ve never had a post dedicated to me before). Today has been a really good day. Glad to hear your sonogram news. I am excited for you!!
