Bennett is always reaching for something in our van. We keep a box filled with books and stuffed animals for her and she is constantly reaching out for one. Yesterday she was crying and asking for one of her books. He hand was stretched out trying to reach it and then slowly, this little chubby arm from across the way reached out and held her hand. It was like Will woke up all of a sudden and realized what he was capable of. Bennett was so surprised that she laughed and wanted to hold Will's hand the whole way home.
Today they held hands the entire time they were in the car. I took the best picture that I could with my cell phone camera. These are the moments that make every bit of it worthwhile.
