Christmas IS real.
CQs first Christmas and it's as if I finally get it. Her presence and experience really governed the whole thing for me.
Her Grandma and Grandpa couldn't have done a better job at creating Christmas, it's a child's dream.
My favorite moment was when CQ came into the room after taking her morning nap. Her face lit up like I have not seen before. She looked each one of us in the face giving a chuckle and an excited kick. And I realize this is why we do it all, for these moments, for that look, and for the excitement of being together and sharing dreams. This felt like my first Christmas...
