When I gave birth to Ellie, I hadn't chosen a Pediatrician yet. The day after I had her, a doctor came in to take a look at her and he said that his name was Matt Clayton. I asked if there was any relation to Dr. Keith Clayton and he said that it was his dad! Keith Clayton was my Pediatrician when I was a baby and all growing up. So today I took Ellie to her two-week appointment at Dr. Clayton's office and it brought back so many memories. The second I walked in, it was just as I had remembered it as a child. The smell stayed the same, the train was still there that circled the ceiling, the same plastic rings were set out for little girls to choose from, and this feeling of being a kid again rushed through my body. As I was waiting in the room for the doctor to come, I had this over whelming feeling of my mom. I remember her taking me to the doctors and then we would go to Magelby's and get hot breadsticks. My mom was the best. The spirit of her was so strong. I couldn't believe that I'm now a mom bringing my little girl to the same office that my mom once took me. I miss her terribly... and lately it has been hard with her not being here to share every moment with me. But I know that she is watching over me and little Ellie. I can feel it.
Here's some pictures by Jessie of my little bug. :)
