10 Years and I Still Miss You So Very Much :(

Every year, as your birthday approaches, it hits me all of a sudden. The realization that one more year has gone by. You would have been 10 years old this year. I only had 3 hours with you and that is all the memories I have of you. Time heals all wounds and your memory is not as painful to me anymore.

Can't Have One Without the Other

As of late, Liam has an obsession with all kinds of stuffed animals.He always slept with Barney and Squeaky, but then wanted to sleep with my stuffed giraffe. Over the weekend, Hannah, Kaylie’s friend, gave him two (2) ducklings. He loves them. He carries them everywhere he goes and sleeps with them. The first thing he grabs now are his ducklings. It was duck (love) at first sight.

Just Another Lazy Day...

In case you can't tell, I am enamored with Lorie's Bouncing Bunnies and Brownies collection. It is so whimsical and fun, I love it to pieces. And have you seen ON's Bubbles? I can't tell where the real bubbles from the photo end and the ones by ON begin. They are that good.

Vera Lim / Hot Pink Sandals

Who would have thought that a pair of hot pink sandals would bring so much joy to you? Certainly not I. Daddy went to the mall with you and Liam to purchase school shoes and came back with these. All winter long you have been waiting for the opportunity to wear them. 4-6-2008
