4 Years Old

Lila rolled over the 4-year mark last month.

Her 12-month scans showed no evidence of disease, which is the best possible result. She's growing quickly. She's funny, smart, excitable, and more than a little wild. She's also gentle, sweet, thoughtful, and highly analytical. She coins a new word every day.

Skye is her spirit animal.

Lila's favorite person by far is her big sis Callie. They play together for hours: School, baking, Play-Doh, bubbles, water table, Octonauts, Paw Patrol, Minecraft, wilding out with GoNoodle, LEGO, and lots of princess time.

This morning Callie is teaching her pupil how to add and subtract. Quote from the den: "Momma, Lila is so so smart!!"

Also they fight and scream and other sister stuff. Not too much.

Cancer changed our little family but we're not rushing to process it and move on. It's a long recovery and you never really move on anyway. I don't think you're supposed to. But there is a point in the recovery process when you just want to be normal for a bit. That's where we're at.

We'll keep the sporadic updates coming if we can all agree that "No news is good news." Subscribe to receive updates by email. Love from the Duncans!

Callie's face!
