In an attempt to wrap up our Christmas coverage, I have created one post with tons of pics (and lots of different family and friends). I still have one more post from our Christmas morning. Santa came and he was kind.
One of the reasons I started this blog was to keep people informed and up-to-date about Hazel's health.
Another reason, was (is) to raise awareness about those with Down Syndrome.
Lastly, I keep this blog as a scrapbook for Hazel. This is her baby book, it will help her remember. It will help me to share these memories with her as she grows (and maybe I - let's say - forget).
So, that as a disclaimer, here are the rest of the wonderful visits we had with family and friends.
Christmas at the cottage with the family. Aunt Linda...
Cousins Tara & Dan...
Cousins Maddy & Morgan join the girls...
Christmas with more Aunties and Uncles...
This globe was a HUGE hit with Hazel.
Dear friend Allie Belle.
Love you like you are my own blood. I treasure every moment I am with you - EVERY SECOND actually.
Clutching a BellaLuluBaby blanket made especially for her out of her momma's clothing. I snatched the clothes when we cleaned out her room at hospice. My heart broke in a million pieces at the thought of having to hand this tragic gift over to such a young baby girl. I had a nervous feeling in my gut until the moment she peered inside the bag. Allie reached her hands in and pulled it out of the bag. She held it close to her chest in a huge embrace and smiled so BIG.
We did good BellaLuluBaby...we did good.
Love & Peace
