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.

11 months

It's been 11 months and one day now since I held my girl. I didn't post yesterday because we were doing Relay for Life. Thanks to my team for walking so much (Lisa walked over 15 miles, I walked 11 and everyone else walked around that!) I was so proud of our team. We had people walking the entire 24 hours. It is on the honor system that each team have someone walking at all times and at around 4AM the numbers dwindle pretty significantly but we still had 5 people walking. Thanks. Also, thanks to those who came out and walked to give the team a break! You saved us. We were exhausted and the breaks made such a difference. Finally, thanks to everyone who donated to support our team. We were able to raise over 2000 dollars to help find a cure for cancer! Lancaster Relay raised over 1 million dollars. Alivia would have been proud of us. We all love and miss you like crazy little ladybug.

you have been on my heart as you come closer to the one year mark. I remember praying like crazy for Alivia last year this time. Your posts were always so encouraging. Another display of you courage, strength and faith. Still praying. -Sue F.

WOW...Impressive. I'm sure she was cheering you on. I was just gathering stuff today to give to you for the yardsales later in the summer. You're on our minds and in our prayers more than you likely know.

James & Emily-

As I came out to get in my car the other day I was getting in the driver's side when out of the corner of my eye I noticed something on my windshield near one of the wipers.....it was a ladybug...Alivia came to mind...she touched our hearts and lives in an unforgettable way...there is grace for even the hardest of moments and through it all God is not absent

What a gorgeous picture of mom and daughter - what wonder in Livi's eyes. Though I was not on your team - I was still honored to share the track with you. Mostly I was impressed how AWAKE you all were at 2am! You had ladybug energy!

Praying on,
Anne
