The Best Mother's Day Ever

Angelica has been alive 106 hours! We are going on our fifth day and we can't believe it. Going into this, we were really hoping for just a few minutes with her and we feel so blessed to have the time that we have had. This is truly the best Mother's Day present ever.
Here are my 2 little girls wearing their matching dresses I made for them:



Peter has been such a good husband and makes sure that I get time for a nap every day. I love snuggling up to my baby and taking a nap together. Peter took this picture yesterday while we were sleeping.

My heart is so full right now thinking about you and your little family and Angelica. Life is good-- that is what I think of when I read what you have to say and share with the rest of us.

Thanks for sharing your experiences with us Candice. She must be a very special spirit. She was sent to a very special home. You are a wonderful example to us. Love you.
