These two photos made my heart sing today. This month is one of those crazy months were I swear Emma has more appointments with doctors then play dates set up. Next week we see two different doctors and then face major dental surgery at the hospital on Friday. So, needless to say we are all a little stressed and medically over it all. But then today a sweet neighbors little girl came over with her American Girl dolls and played with Emma and her new Our Generation doll. They sat in her room and brushed their hair, talked about the dolls, outfits and books. Then, they carefully brought their dolls out to have a tea party under the tree in our yard.
Honestly, sometimes I get bogged down in the medical part of managing Emma's care. I forget how much of a typical child she really is. She just wants to sit and have a tea party with her friend. She was so happy today and cant wait till Friday when they can hopefully play again. I sat back and watched them and was once again reminded of how far she has come. There were days when she was little that I fell to my knees and prayed she would be able to walk with her friends and play with dolls. God is Good! And I am so thankful for sweet moments like these where Emma is just a kid having fun with her doll.
