The first week in May we had Riley's brother Ethan come visit us from Hawaii. Th trip happened over Japan's "Golden Week" which was extra "golden" for everyone because Riley had the majority of his trip off from work! So it was a vacation for everyone. We visited all the best places in Tokyo, ate all the famous cuisine, and loved having good quality family time with our favorite uncle Ethan! He is such a stud and so grateful he came and played with us.

Happy Mother's Day!

May 13, 2018:

Last year's Mother's Day was Luke's FIRST full day home from the NICU. We have kept him alive for an entire year (officially on our own)! This year has been the best, I love my little pal. I wonder how many hundreds of miles we have walked together in the carrier. 

I went through memory lane today and reminisced on this past year. So grateful to be Luke's mama. (This post is just a TON of pictures of me and him. . . )

Once upon a time, Riley pretending to be pregnant. . .
Then being actually pregnant. . .  (me, not Riley)
