Life, The Universe And Everything

I am feeling so blessed right now, I simply can’t help but gush about it. Evangeline is the greatest. She is 19 months old and so full of cute it’s excruciating. She add’s new words to her vocabulary every day. The latest are Pull, Jewel (our cat, who used to be called kitty), sleepy (oh man, how awesome that she now TELLS me when she is tiered) and hello (formerly Hi!). She is so outgoing and social, she yells HELLO to everyone who walks past her, which of course is always met with gushing adults who die a little from her cuteness.

She is so curious, fearless and animated. She never ceases to amuse me with her wild nature, the child is out to conquor the world and God help you if you get in her way. On the flipside of that, she is so full of love. Running over to us randomly, mid play to give us big hugs and kisses. All the animals, living and stuffed, that live in our house are also showered with love on a daily basis. She often brings me 4-5 stuffed animals and asks me to kiss each one of them.

We waited so long to have a living child all of our own.  After the horrendous heartbreak that came with Evan’s death; I can’t help but be overwhelmingly grateful for every single day I get to be Evangeline’s mom. I have never felt so complete as a person in my 34 years. She has made our family whole again and brought my husband and I closer together then ever in our shared love.

Evangeline, I am so thankful you came to us and have blessed our life with so much joy. Seeing the world through your eye’s reminds of the beauty and wonder all around us every day. Thank you so much. Love you forever.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.
