Letting go

Letting go of someone you love is the most difficult decision one has to make. 7 years ago I had to say goodbye to Olivia. I wish I could say this day gets a little easier as the years go by, but I would be lying if I did. As I stood at her grave today I felt an overwhelming amount of sadnees & anxiety. This anniversary seemed a bit harder than the last few years. Maybe it's because we have added to our family. I think it hit me really hard how incomplete our family is without Olivia here. As I walked back to the car tears just poured down my face. It was like I was having a flashback to the day I had to leave the hospital for the last time and it was without Olivia. We made the choice 7 years ago to let Olivia go. I knew that it was time. That we had tried everything we possibly could. She had done the absolute best she could. 12 hours before she died I told her it was ok to let go. That we would be ok.

In my heart I know we made the right choice, but it doesn't make this day any easier.

Madison had a biopsy yesterday for the cyst that they found when she broke her arm several weeks ago. It was an outpatient procedure but it did require that Madison be put under. She did great! We will hopefully have the results by late next week.

Disney World

For Maddy's 10th birthday she got a very special gift. My mom treated us to a trip to Disney World. Our trip was fantastic! Maddy & Charlotte did great the whole trip from the plane rides to all the walking and warm weather. The kids got to swim in a beautiful pool at the resort and we also were able to visit a Disney water park which was awesome! Charlotte loves the water(thank goodness). We were so lucky to go on this trip and we can't thank my mom enough for such a wonderful gift and the awesome memories to go along with it.

Hope you enjoy the pictures

I'm back!

Oh my goodness. I'm sorry I've been terrible at keeping up with this blog. We have been without a computer for quite some time and well Miss Charlotte keeps me VERY busy :) And blogger has not been my friend the last few days as I try to update.

My goal for today is to get caught up! 

Lots of cute pics to come :)

Here's a sneak peak at the cuteness!

5 months old

Charlotte Grace turned 5 months old today!

Time seems to be flying by. Charlotte is keeping us very busy these days. She is growing like a weed. She weighed in yesterday at 15 pounds 10 ounces and 25 1/2 inches long. Charlotte is still not sleeping well and naps pretty much don't exsist in this house :( But her smile makes up for all the sleepless nights.
