Just to see you smile

I love Emma's smile. It feels so good to finally see her smiling, laughing and enjoying life. Today she was a crazy pony-tailed girl, running around in the play area of the mall having a great time. I want her to remember these days, not the days full of medical procedures, not the hospital stays and not the scary loud machines running tests.
Today was one of those days I wished we had more often.

I want her to have as much fun as humanly possible because she missed out on having fun for such a long time. She and I cried so much during her first year of life that I feel obligated to give her days like these as much as I can. She deserves to be happy, to be pain-free, to simply be a kid.
