Niko crawled into my arms and fell asleep tonight. I wrapped him in a blanket and I couldn't stop kissing his fuzzy head. I never get to hold him like this anymore. I turned to Luke and told him that I was cherishing this moment.

Meanwhile, Nina had crawled into a shoebox and was calling it her "tub". "Nina tub. Nina tub." We were all here. We were all safe. We were in the same room, breathing in and out at the same time. I don't want to say that I have been hit with the fragility of life, because I have always been painfully aware of it. But I appreciated our togetherness and our wholeness. It was a beautiful moment.
