Charli is feeling pretty well so far. She is doing so many cute things. She likes to stand and walk, while holding my fingers. She laughs and giggles, just like a “little girl”. She sparkles when her daddy walks into the room and she loves to touch Kasper’s fur!
She did get sick twice today, but nothing major. Nothing that a moms hand couldn’t wipe away!
I left Charli for about 5 minutes today(daddy stayed home with her). When I got home Chad pointed out that Charli’s hair was coming out in chunks. I was sick. A few weeks ago you might remember me saying that we say hair on Charli’s sheets. This is different; there are ‘chunks’ of hair on her dress tonight. I ran my fingers through her soft baby hair, and about 20 pieces came with it.
While I did it, she laughed. I told Chad that if it didn’t bother her…we shouldn’t let it bother us. He went out to mow, and I sat on the couch and cried. This disease is just eating away at her little by little…and this is just a reminder of it all.
I know that it is just hair…so please don’t tell me that. It is more than that – it is a symbol of all that is going on. It is emotional, and it sucks. Real literal huh, there is no better word…it just sucks!
So, I called my great friend Linda…and she felt bad with me. Sometimes it is nice to just have someone be sad with you once in awhile…but in true “Linda” fashion, she picked me right back up again!
So, now my balding baby will sport her hats and bows more often – and look incredibly stylish doing it! All I ask is when you see her; you don’t say…well it is just hair - because to a mother of a cancer fighter, it is much more than just the hair.
I haven’t posted pictures in far too long…so I better catch up!
you're silly mom...give me my toy back!
hurry up and take the pictures, I am on the go!
but I think I will rest first!
