31 for 21 ~ Song & Dance

I thought before I jump into the rest of Jonathan's birth story, I would give you a little peek of the Jonathan of today. He is fun and carefree!

While we were at Downtown Disney last month walking around there was lots of Disney music playing. We stopped to watch a bird show at the Rain Forest Cafe, when we turned around Jonathan had found a tune/beat he really liked. He began to smile at us, nodded his head and began to dance. He was focused hard on the music and the rhythm.

He giggled, bounced up and down, twisted, then swung his arms from side to side. He was thoroughly enjoying himself, not thinking of what those passing by might think of him. We all watched him as he danced, all I could think of is he is living life to its fullest!

As the song came to an end Jonathan looked up at us tried to snap his fingers and said "yeah"! What a performance he put on, and the joy on his face was priceless. Once again I was reminded of how caught up we get in life that we don't take time for the simple things, like the beat of a silly song. I'm thankful for the times when I see life through Jonathan's eyes, and hear a song from his view point and not my own.
