Katy says

Bringing Out the Best in Others

October 18, 2010

If Katy is in the right mood, she has this innate ability to bring smiles to the faces of everyone she meets. And she does it in the simplest way possible… she says “hi!” Today, after we walked throughout the “Subways” and over the “Skywalks,” we let her climb out of her wheelchair and play with her favorite type of jungle gym – you got it, a flight of stairs. Katy proceeded to welcome nearly everyone who walked anywhere near this set of stairs. And if she wasn’t saying “hi” or “bye” she was letting them know if they were going ‘Up, up, up!” or “Down, down, down!” (In case they didn’t realize this.) And even though this is generally a very friendly hospital, there are definitely people that needed a smile.

My little girl gave them one. Take a look at the video below:

Who knows where this trait comes from? I’m about as shy as they come. It’s a wonderful thing to watch, though.

Makes me wonder if she’s trying to teach me a thing or two sometimes. “Look, Dad. Just say “Hi!”

I guess it really may be that easy.

Yes, she is the cutest thing. And just remember, this was my edited version of the video. She actually did this for close to 30 minutes.
