Day 55: the evening of December 11
We got what you might say a lot of snow. Forgoing all of our evening plans, we got out the sleds and off we went for a snowy walk in the neighborhood. It was a little cold.
You were fine – until we got home.
Maybe it was the snowsuit. Winnie the Pooh . . . I don’t blame you. Don’t worry, Nana got you a funky snow suit that fits better anyhow.

Today your poor brother fell and busted his face. Oh, what a horrible crash he had! Your dad had to come home from work and take Gabe to the dentist. May God protect you from serious injury, my little one.
Through all of Gabe’s pain, though . . . he has remained ever so gentle and even more aware of your cries.

P.S. This was the very first time I left you for the evening. Praise the Lord, you slept the entire time that I was gone at Tia’s bachelorette dinner.

If you look closely enough in the above picture . . . you can see me in your eyes!
Your smile is so sweet! I love it! (And I love you!)
Day 66: December 23
Today was a very hard day . . . we had to say goodbye to our faithful dog. I’m so sad that you really will never know her. She was a good dog. She was at your birth . . . watching over . . . . guarding the house. You have been such a comfort to me during this tough time . . . with all of your sweet smiles.
