I remember when Rourke was a tiny baby, and I was holding him, thinking that I would always remember the details of those moments. The way he felt in my arms, the click of his mouth as it closed after a sweet baby yawn, his breathing. While I can report on those things, I don't actually remember them in the ways I thought I would.
As Esther's hair went away, the same thing happened. When I looked at her sweet bald head, I couldn't really remember what she looked like with hair. All my mind could muster was imagery from photos. This has happened yet again...as Esther's hair is growing back, I can't remember her without it.
P.S. We had a really great guess, wondering if Esther would be starting her Make A Wish. That is such a great guess, but it's still several months off. The wish needs to be completed within 9 months of the beginning process, so we need to wait until she's healthy enough to actually make her wish. GREAT guess!
