But? We did it.
My beautiful, amazing miracles.
They met Santa.
And it was PERFECT.
And so very normal. Oh my have I missed normal!
This is the first year that Kate has been medically "cleared" to meet Santa. In 2010, her ANC was extremely low, we were searching for a diagnosis, and encouraged to not take her near a germy Santa. In 2011 she was just a few months post transplant.
In 2012? She is a THRIVING two year old that desperately wants Santa to bring her a pink bike. You better believe she will have a pink bike waiting for her Christmas morning!
Kate even got to see Santa with her best friend, and fellow transplant survivor, Colt!
I took some pictures of these two after meeting Santa. They keep me laughing! This picture is totally unposed. Kate was determined to read Colt her new book!
Thinking about how far they have both come since last year brings tears to my eyes. It really is so amazing!
Kate loved all of the Christmas decorations too! She loved them so much that she picked a poinsettia and hid it in Colt's stroller so she could take one home! We laughed so hard when we discovered the stowaway!
Have y'all visited Santa yet? Was it a success or a bust?
And to any Houston readers, we were at Bay Brook Mall - loved Santa - he was so great with the kids and so nice!
