Okay...so Nathan and I have cancer. Bad. We also have Sadie Abigail Bond. Good. And when I first broke the news of Nathan's diagnosis I said that cancer was going to be a part of our lives, not the entirety of our lives. Well, I may have underestimated that a bit but my initial thought process was the right idea at least. This blog is for the entire Bond family and we don't want all the wonderful discoveries and stories about Miss Sadie and this time of her life to be overshadowed or worse completely obscured by our illnesses.
So here's some of the latest and greatest. Sadie is in all her glory. There are tons of visitors doting on her every day. Packages arrive daily and she gets to open them just like Christmas presents. Her mom and dad are home much more of the time than they used to be. Clearly something has changed around here but only for the better. And let's not forget TonTon (the affectionate French term for uncle) who arrived on Friday. The love affair that began at Christmas immediately resumed. Sadie is so enamored with her Uncle Joel, Nathan's brother. She flirts with him. She likes to just be next to him. She constantly monitors his movements and is aware of his physical location at all times. When I needed to lure her out of the tub the other night I said, "Do you want to see TonTon?" and immediately her eyes lit up and her arms flew up into the standard pick me up position. It is so sweet to watch. Here are some recent photos of Sadie in the gorgeous Easter poncho Tania and Brooke sent her.
