Last night we made a stepping stone with the girls' footprints. Thanks for picking it up Mom! We agonized over what to do and what to write and in the end it was easy and perfect. It has 3 footprints of course, and then I wrote Sisters- Friends 4-ever. This is something that I have been saying to Calla since we found out we were pregnant with Maya. We've also stamped Georgia's feet and we've taken more pictures in the last couple of weeks than we would normally take in a year. The Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep photographer has also come and we have some incredibly beautiful shots of our family (to be shared at a later date). My aunt is going to sew a quilt from Georgia's clothes. This will be something that I can cling to and cuddle up with when I'm feeling lost. Thank you Auntie! I plan on getting a locket so that I can keep Georgie's picture with me at all times but other than that I am running out of ideas and time. If you have any idea on how to memorialize our time with our sweet angel please send them.
Today Georgia came down to play for a few hours once again. She just woke up a while ago and we're hoping to bring her down for the evening. When she is down later in the day it feels almost normal.
A beautiful peace lily arrived today from the Plett family. This is a mother that I see once a week at Calla's dance class and shamefully I didn't even know her name. If you're reading this Candace I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I happen to love peace lilies. Thank you to the Ranick's who dropped off a fruit and veggie tray as well. It looks delicious. Another one of my friend's took some pictures and video of Maya dancing today because I no longer attend the classes. Thank you Kristine for you thoughtfulness. To all of you who continue to read and share our blog, who pray for Georgia, who have helped to feed us or run errands for us we continue to be grateful to all of you. All that we can promise is that when our time of need comes to an end we will pay it forward.
