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.

9 Months

Yesterday our little Aria turned nine months old and she is definitely starting to show us what she can do. She now pulls herself up onto just about everything...tables, chairs, window sills, legs etc. In fact, yesterday she somehow pulled herself up against the wall! Today she moved from the window sill to her ball track. If you hold her by the hands she'll start walking and sometimes she'll even try to stand on her own. We are in such big trouble!!!

We took Aria swimming for the first time this past weekend. Maya was absolutely delighted by the number of bathing suits that Aria has. Five - that's right the baby has 5 bathing suits and just went swimming for the first time. LOL In all fairness, 3 of them are hand-me-downs and the other two were gifts. They're all super cute so we have to use all of them! : ) Aria loved the pool. She loved splashing in the water, floating around and watching all of the kids.

Aria continues to babble whenever she's happy. She'll often try to say 'hi' when she sees someone and will wave 'bye bye' when she's in the right mood. She has also started to play strange with people that she doesn't see very often. The best part about this stage is how excited she gets when she sees people that she recognizes. Daddy gets a very enthusiastic welcome when he comes home from work every day.

Love to you all,



  1. She is beautiful!! Just like her sisters and her mom and dad!

  2. Kristen,
