Welcome to Georgia's Journey

Georgia Lily Lucas was born at home on October 6th, 2008 4:15am, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She was diagnosed with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) on April 1, 2009.

On April 3rd Georgia was taken home, to be near her sisters and the rest of her family and friends. Nearly three weeks later, on April 21, 2009, she died peacefully -- in the loving arms of her mother and in the same room in which she was born.

7 months

Today our Aria is seven months old. She, and we have all had a busy month. With concerts, and baking, shopping and more shopping the month seems to have flown by. Aria now has three teeth and just yesterday she got her ears pierced! She cried for all of 10 seconds and then stopped to look around at all of the stuff and people in the store. She is up on her hands and knees all of the time now although she has yet to perfect the act of crawling. She still prefers the inch worm, army crawl and rolling.

I have been introducing new foods to her on a regular basis but no surprise to me, she prefers the orange food. Carrots are her favorite followed by squash and then sweet potatoes. Beans received a few tentative swallows followed by gagging and spitting, while peas received the the all out puking award - won't try those again as I am actually allergic to them myself. She will however, chew on brocolli and seems to really like the taste so there is hope for the greens! : )

Calla had her last day of school today so I feel like our holidays are finally beginning. Everything seems to have come together and I am hoping to have some relaxing moments with the girls over the next couple of days. Enjoy the pictures!

The girls with their gingerbread house that they made with Grandma!

Who says you need t.v.?! Yes, she is actually watching the washing machine and loving it!! : )

Ready to go see Santa. Check out those ears!

Love to you all,
