How on earth did she go from this:
I look at her face sometimes and wonder if she's even real. Is this actually happening? She is such a miracle that I still feel like I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm really awake.
The feeling of wholeness that our family has right now is just wonderful and we definitely do not take it for granted. The kids and I trekked to the grocery store this morning. We played with trains, made breakfast and watched Pound Puppies. Lauren fell asleep in her exersaucer while Ryan pretended to sleep on the couch. All such every day, normal things that feel so extraordinary to me. I can barely believe this is the same life I had 8 months ago when Lauren was so sick. I missed Ryan so much my heart ached. I was so sad for my baby that my soul ached. And I missed my husband like crazy. The fact that we all get to be together leaves me in awe.
I am amazed.
