Thank you Auntie Mary Lynn! Georgie's quilt is beautiful and a gift that will be treasured for the rest of our lives. It is a star pattern quilt with all of the stars being made out of Georgia's clothing. I can look at each of the stars and picture Georgia in the outfit that matches the material. The back of the quilt is actually made out of one of Georgia's crib sheets. It has purposefully been left unwashed and if I find the right spot I can still draw up clear images with a single breath. Today, Calla picked up the quilt and held it up to her face before exclaiming, "Oh my gosh, it smells like Georgia!"
At the bottom right hand corner of the quilt is a picture of Georgia. She is 3.5 months in the picture with her hands and feet in the air. It is my favorite picture of her before SMA ravaged her little body. It was taken by a photographer who was trying to get her to smile. All of a sudden Georgie looked at something invisible to most of us and her face lit up. The photographer snapped a few photos and then asked me, "What is she smiling at?" To which I replied, "Her spirit friends of course. Haven't you ever noticed that small babies see things that we don't?"
For the record, Calla and Maya had spirit friends too but they seemed to disappear around 4 months. Georgie's friends always stuck around. Of course, I now understand why. Don't believe me? Pay close attention to babies between two and four months. You may be surprised! Cats will freak you out if you pay close attention to them!
Love to you all,
PS I'm honoured to know that you're following Sarah. I will be forever grateful for your beautiful smile and sneaky cuddles.
