Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

While Alivia was sick we bought and sold Livi bracelets. It was so nice for me to see them on people and know that they were praying and thinking about my girl. I thought when I got my tattoo that I would take mine off because I had a more lasting reminder of my girl on my wrist. But I can't seem to take it off. I like when I still see them on people. It makes me think that they can't seem to take theirs off either. That they can't forget her or stop thinking about her. I know I can't. Every second has reminders for me, every breath.

More Tattoos

I won't be posting the names of the owners of the tattoos to keep their privacy. These are peoples personal tributes to Livi. If you know us you'll know which tattoo belongs to which person. I'm so glad that people that loved Livi have decided to have these tributes on their bodies. It means so much to James and I.

More Tattoos

Here are a few more of the tattoos to celebrate Livi's life. I personally love looking down and seeing mine.

Last night I learned that our little friend Jackson's leukemia has returned. Their family was our closest friends in the hospital and we rejoiced with them when they got the news that he was in remission. Unfortunetly the leukemia has returned and Jackson will be having a bone marrow transplant in about a month. He could us all of your prayers. Also another of our friends from the hospital, Isabel learned that her leukemia returned about a week ago. I hate this disease, I hate what it does to these sweet kids. If you haven't signed up to be a bone marrow donor please do. Go to marrow.org for all the info.
