In 2007, God blessed us with a baby girl, Lilly. In 2008, he called her home. Grief drove us to find new passions and that is when we starting curating space and creating custom pieces. God has blessed us with new life again, Mia and Tripp. This is our journey through this fallen, but beautiful world.
Mia is 14 weeks old now. I have never felt such a mix of emotions that all come crashing together. We love her more everyday. The deeper our hearts fall in love, the more our heads remind us what could happen. Lilly was 15 weeks old when she passed away. As Mia approaches this milestone, I am flooded with memories of my sweet Lilly and how she will forever be frozen in my mind at this age. Mia is also starting to look more and more like Lilly, which can also cause a flood of emotions. God is in control and holding on to us tightly right now, that I am sure of.
I know we have required so much prayer this year, but I need to ask for it for just a little longer. Please keep Mia in your prayers. That God's protecting hand stay over her. That Richard and I have discernment and wisdom in our decision making, and most importantly, that all Mia is feels is surrounded by love. We don't want her to know how neurotic her parents are!
Mia is such a joy! She loves to smile, is mesmerized by Praise Baby DVD's, and gives the best cuddles and kisses. Here are some pics of our precious girl.
Baby Bounce Library time with our play group. It was so wild, Mia loved it!
Chillin' on the patio at Twisted Root. The red glow is from the red umbrella we were sitting under.
Staring at Praise Baby. She loves it and always talks to the babies on the screen.
Cute tummy time smiles!
