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.

18 months

Well, today Aria is 18 months old and such a big girl. I have had lots of messages over the last week asking how her arm is doing and I am pleased to tell you that it is healing really well. Last night she wrestled it out of her sling (as the doctor warned me that she would) and woke up this morning happy to try using it. She is still not putting any pressure on it but was lifting it above her head to reach for something and was using it to help carry stuff around. Not bad for 13 days! LOL

At 18 months Aria is a very busy little girl, always trying to keep up with her big sisters. She has become quite the parrot. Calla and Maya love trying to get her to repeat all kinds of words. She has even started stringing some together. The most common phrase is, 'What's dat?' and 'I go outside'. The funniest phrase however is when she gets this mischevious look on her face and starts walking backwards singsonging the words, 'I can get you!' meaning 'you can't get me!' She thinks that it's so funny when we go chasing after her.

Before she broke her arm I was going to put her on bobskates because she is desperate to be out on the ice with her sisters but I think that I'll wait until after Christmas. We don't need any more breaks.

Aria just loves books at the moment continually pointing and asking, "What's dad?" In the last week she has decided that she wants to be a part of the big girl story time in Calla and Maya's room. I knew that it was bound to happen soon but she is just getting so big so fast!

Here she is sitting with Daddy and her sisters before bed. You can see that her arm is free!

Love to you all,
