One year ago, around 9pm, our hearts were absolutely shattered with the loss of our 1st baby Lily Ann Hope. We. were. devastated. By far the worst few days of our life.
One month ago, at 6:37pm, our hearts were bursting with joy at the arrival of our 2nd baby Makenna Zophia. Thrilled doesn't even begin to explain how we felt when we first saw her. We're falling more and more in love with her each and every day.
What a difference 1 year makes! 2009 is SO MUCH BETTER!!!
It's truly a double edged sword... I would give almost anything to have Lily back. BUT if we didn't lose Lily, we wouldn't have Makenna. I certainly don't want to give her up either. Can't I have my cake and eat it too? Obviously not:/
So on Lily's 1st heavenly birthday, I want to tell her we miss her and love her and thank her for watching over us and her little sister. I know she's an angel in heaven and is probably entertaining her great-grandpas in the same way Makenna is entertaining us! Until we meet again baby girl....
