Just ramblings...

Yesterday was 3 years since we got the funny shock that Lily wasn't a boy and was a girl! I remember how excited I was to be having my girl and our first stop was babies-r-us. All of those clothes are still on their hangers with tags on them. I never got to the washing and folding of them. I'm glad that I still have all those clothes, too. They remain my link to that time with her.

I've decided to not do a big family party for her birthday this year. I've chosen instead to do the memory baskets and a balloon release that day. We're also planning on a day trip for the 3 of us on the Saturday prior to her birthday. More about the location later :) If you would like your baby(ies)'s name included on the balloon then please leave me a comment!

I'm almost done with the memory baskets! I've got to buy the baskets, one more hand/foot mold and the teddybears and they'll be complete! I never get to spend time or money on anything for her anymore so I do *enjoy* working on these projects.

My last thought for this post. I love her. I miss her. The end.

I would be honored for you to incude Meredith. What a sweet gesture! Love your plans for Lily's special day and the little trip. I'm glad you saved her clothes - I understand that connection. xoxo
