(Note: No hat necessary!!!)
Today, it reached 68 degrees in Chicago! What a perfect day to get reacquainted with our favorite stroller routes in the city. We headed north on the lake front path and then headed back through our favorite neighborhood streets and stopped at the local playground. In the fall, Ryan was too small to do anything, but now he is loving the swings!
I thought a lot about the Staat family and their sweet baby Maddie who passed away 1 month ago today. She was only 4 months old, and her parents, in the midst of their grieving, have already impacted so many families of young ones by reminding us that none of our babies are immune to SIDS. Today, we walked/played in honor of Maddie and to show our support for her incredibly strong parents- I am so very sorry for your loss and I thank you for reminding me not to take a single moment with my little monkey for granted.
