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.

8 Months

Yes, it's hard to believe but yesterday marked 8 months that we have had Aria here with us. As mentioned in my previous post, she is now babbling. I really can't express how the sound of her babbling has brought so much joy into our house. It is such a happy sound and we all love hearing it!

Aria still prefers eating her 'orange' food and despite my best efforts the greens aren't going down! She has recently started eating baby rice crackers and I think that we'll probably try a few more finger foods in the next month.

If I leave the room Aria will often come looking for me. When I run her bath at night she will often crawl into the bathroom with a big smile on her face. She loves her bathtime. : ) She can also go from lying down to sitting up on her own. Truthfully, I don't remember Calla and Maya doing that at all.

Aria also loves to be part of the action. If the girls are playing something then she wants to be a part of it, especially when daddy is involved. She LOVES the monster game the best! Yesterday, I took her upstairs to nurse her and she heard Mike say something in his monster voice to the girls. She immediately sat up wide eyed and tried to throw herself out of my lap. She would have crawled straight out the door had I not taken her. As it was she was kicking her feet and waving her arms in excitement. I can't believe how much my baby wants to be kid!!

We continue to enjoy every moment that we have with our little one and are so grateful for her presence.

Love to you all,



  1. Oh. She. Is. So. CUTE!!! Can't stnad it!!!

  2. Oh my goodness Kristen, she is so cute! I seriously think I am going to cry when I see our two little miracles sitting next to each other when we get together. To know what we've both been through, and then to think of the gift of joy and much needed smiles that they give us... it's overwhelming! Hope little Aria is starting to feel better!

  3. I just want to cuddle her, she is so adorable!! I can just imagine her perking right up and trying to get to play with the "big girls" and Daddy-so much fun. thinking of you always, Em
