We had Maya's eye appt today and the retinologist gave her a great review! He said that she looks just as he'd hoped and that we dont have to return for 3 months!!! She is also cleared to visit the ophthalmologist with Bobby. I'm going to call Dr L (who will see Bobby next week) and ask if he wants to see Maya at the same time or if we should make her first appt and Bobby's next one (which will be in 3 months). We also went to the pediatrician for their Prevnar injection. I dont think it will ever NOT hurt to watch them get a shot, to watch their little eyes go from happy world to shock and then the cry of WHATTHEHELLJUSTHAPPENED!!!! It hurts me more than them!
I made a yummy dinner tonight of salad and baked yams topped with salmon. As Peter and I sat down, in the dining room no less, with a glass of wine and the Christmas tree twinkling in the background, while Bobby and Maya amused themselves, the song "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" came on. At the line "Through the years we all will be together if the fates allow...", I found myself overcome with emotion. We all will be together... If only it were the fates I were fighting. If only... If... Through the years we will only all be together in my memories.
My mother-in-law found the outfits that both Peter and his brother were baptized in. We'd hoped to put Bobby in Peter's after the Christening, but our big boy is, well, big! So, instead he will wear his Uncle Robert's on Christmas Eve and his daddy's on Christmas. They are cute little suits. I will post pictures. (Maya doesnt have hand-me-downs but has two adorable little dresses!)
My heart is heavy tonight for dear Sarah at Dreams and False Alarms. Please stop by and show her some love.
