Blessed by my "Biggest"

Today was one of those days where I could have just sat and watched Sierra all day long. I don't know what happened, but I am thankful. I just feel completely and utterly blessed by her. She couldn't be more perfect. If God would have given me a list of traits that I wanted my daughter to inherit, I would have hand picked all the ones she received. The big blue eyes and poker straight hair like her dad, the girly-girl and love of baby dolls like her mommy, the big personality that lights up a room, the ability to make people smile and laugh just by being herself. I could go on and on.....

I can't seem to put my thoughts into words tonight. But I guess what I really want to say is thank you, Sierra. For making me truly smile when I never thought it was possible again. For giving me a reason to get up every day. For giving me the strength to face difficult things. For giving me joy. For reminding me that although we have been dealt a very crappy hand, we are still blessed. For giving us hope for the future. Someday I hope you will realize how much you have taken care of us these past 3 months, without even trying. You are the best gift ever.

This is one of those bittersweet pictures - makes me happy and sad at the same time. Here is Sierra on Christmas morning, putting her ornament on the pink tree that we decorated in honor of Adelyn. So sweet - and you have to love the chef hat that she refused to take off. She is wearing it in every picture on Christmas morning!

I have that same tree! My dad got it for me a year and a half ago. Sadly my dad didn't get to see it lit up.
