A Big, Fat Thank You

A surprise side effect to starting this blog is that I have 'met' some very cool people in blogland. Of course there's always the chance that the people I think are cool are actually freaky ax murderers, seeing as how I've never actually met them in person. But would a freaky ax murderer send something as cool as this hat for Daphne's birthday...?

Yeah, I didn't think so. Daphne is pretty much drunk with happiness over it. She also was fascinated by the birthday card that came with it.

I met Amber some months ago after learning through another blog that Amber's soon-to-be-born little girl, Megan Grace, had been diagnosed with a lethal form of skeletal dysplasia. Amber showed amazing bravery and grace as she anticipated the birth of her little girl, knowing that saying hello would also mean saying good-bye. I appreciate that Amber has continued to be a part of Daphne's life even after Megan's birth and death in June. I can only imagine how hard it must be to watch someone else celebrate the joy of their baby's first birthday, when your own baby's first birthday will be spent in Heaven.

Thank you, Amber, for such a sweet gift. You continue to show grace as you navigate your life without your baby girl. We are honored to know you.

Oh I'm so glad she likes it AND looks adorable in it! Got the Christmas card and the thank you today. They are both hanging on the fridge.

Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday!
