That afternoon, Rich and Kayla took a 2 hour nap together (these two and their naps, I swear I wish I could nap). While they napped, I decided to do a little reading. The very first thing I read after I had Kayla, that finally made me start to feel "ok" about her diagnosis, was the book Bloom by Kelle Hampton. It has been such a wild and interesting year, I decided that I wanted to read it again. So I started it and I will finish it on my trip this week. Something tells me I will feel different, yet have so many of the same emotions while reading this again. I think there is going to be a lot of reflecting over the next few weeks as we approach Kayla's first birthday. I can't believe my baby is going to be one.
Overall, I will say this was a perfect "first" Mother's Day. I got to spend it with my two favorite people. Can't ask for much more than that!
