My Mom treated my sister Sara and her husband Marc to a night in a hotel this weekend. So Mom & Hale babysat the boys and I went over to visit for a few hours. Trying to get Jake's pjs on was a challenge and he sure did look at us like we did not know what we were doing. Joey's looking more like himself every time I see him. You know how newborns all kinda look squished up and pink? So now he's growing into his face and turning into a real cutie- very alert and looking around and smiling already. Both of those boys are just so sweet. Sara's a great mom and it shows in her kids.
Thank you for all of your support. The loss of the ability to have a child is huge. Knowing I can never give Jon a child with his eyes or my freakishly short legs is heartbreaking. But we're dealing with it and while it will never be easy we're learning that even though our children won't be born from my womb, they'll be born in our hearts, and that's pretty amazing.
