We always record our children's milestones. All of their little (and big) accomplishments lovingly noted in the baby books. I love to look back and see where my kids were and how far they have come. I love to remember what they used to be like and I often feel sad to see how much they have changed.
I thought that as a parent I was done reaching milestones, but I realized that even I can still have my own little victories.
The other day I was able to tell someone about Lily and her diagnosis without CRYING!
For some reason it is really difficult for me to tell someone about the actual diagnosis. I can answer all kinds of questions and talk about it until I am blue in the face, but having to break the news to someone? Torture!
So when I was able to explain Lily's diagnosis without so much as shedding a tear, I felt like I had crossed into new territory. A place where finding out that my child has Cri Du Chat is not the end of the world.
