We didn't have to force poses out of Lorelai, Kaley asked her to read with me or play with Owen. We even had a little dance party.
Owen got tired really quickly (laughing is hard work) so I put him to bed and thought we'd have to be done but Kaley had other plans.
There just isn't a lot of silly one on one time with my girl these days. When baby sleeps I seem to always have a list of things to get done. But I try to have a moment with her once a day. To reconnect and give her the praise she deserves for being such a great big sis and being patient with me as I figure out this whole family of 4 thing.
So we made cookies. And a mess. And I cried when Kaley sent these to me, because that's my girl. That's the perfect little human that changed me forever, that made me a mother. I worked in an OBGYN office for years before I had kids and I saw so many women struggle with infertility and the desire to fulfill that natural calling. I don't have the answer as to why some get the opportunity while others don't but I can say with sincerity that I know what I have, and I am truly grateful for it. May each woman find her motherhood role in whichever way she can.
I am ever so thankful for Kaley. She captured my family and the sweetness of my little babies and made it so effortless for all of us. Xxxxxx
