Christmas is always a time of happiness, family, and seeing little ones believe in a magical tradition. I remember going to my Grandmas house and spending the night then waking up to tons of family in the morning and opening presents. Those were the best Christmases!
Mark and I have started our own little tradition that he brought over from his family. I absolutely loved it when he showed me and it is now our new Aguilar tradition.
The Family Ornament
Each year we pick an ornament and have our names all put on, and yes we even include our fur babies. They are family too! This year we got to add our twins, Selena and Mark Anthony. It's never easy, remembering the loss, and all the details in his final moments. I believe that he waited for us, and felt no pain as he went to be with God. Our little angel is always going to be watching over us.
Seeing Selena grow is amazing. Mark had noticed in the NICU how her head had a line running across the top. We thought it was a IV or something, but then her nurse explained to us that it was her skull still forming. The bones were not fully expanded and so they slightly overlapped. Now seeing her you don't see that. We got to see her grow outside of the womb, and that alone is remarkable.
