Alyx's 2nd birthday, one year ago 💞 Just a small celebration this year since little sister was so sick (and sleeping for much of the celebration) but Alyx was really just as happy. He had Mama and Papa's full attention and plenty of Super Wings and ice-cream cake! We finished out the fun by breaking open his new Badanamu learning sets. #twoyearsold#happybirthday#family
I knew something was up when Amelia’s pediatrician was the one who called us back from the waiting area today. She proceeded to take Amelia’s vitals, verify her medical history, and ask about any concerns. I asked if they were short handed and she responded that due to flooding a lot of the nurses had to call out but her patients still needed her so she was wearing a few different hats today. Shortly after she explained all this Amelia wrapped her in a hug and would not let go. I watched as this tiny human lifted her doctors stresses, if only for a moment, and restored some sort of faith. It was a truly magical moment that had both me and her doctor in tears. Be nice to your doctors people, sometimes a little understanding can go a long way.
