2010 So Far...

We are having so much fun watching the relationship between Ella and Claire develop. Ella really adores her little sister - for now. She now asks to "have her" on a regular basis... and Claire seems to tolerate the awkward attempt her sister makes at holding her. This morning Ella heard Claire cry out on the monitor and immediately headed for the stairs announcing, "I'll get her"! And last week, when I brought Claire downstairs to where Ella was playing with Daddy... she happily greeted her with, "Good Morning Sister"!! I have no doubt one day there will be much screaming and yelling over toys and maybe even boyfriends... but for now... they are simply adorable.

Bonding over Baby Einstein... already. (I'm not ashamed).

Pooped herself out on the jumperoo! Poor thing!

Too cute.


Ewwwww... GROSS!!!

No WAY are you touching me after that display!!

It's Time

I've been debating for quite some time now about whether or not Ricky's website should remain up and running. I'll be honest, even though my posts and updates on it have grown fewer and farther between, I just haven't been able to bring myself to stop payments and let it go. Just last week however, I found out that they now can convert your website into book form...

...and that was all I needed to hear.

Every journal entry I made... every comment left... every picture posted... I can have in print - to keep forever. And now I'm very much at peace with taking it all down. My thoughts and memories of him will inevitably be strewn all over this blog from time to time, so it in no way means that I am ending my ability to reflect "out loud". I'm simply accepting the reality that a chapter has closed. I'm going to leave it up for one last week - so if you would like to leave a final comment or maybe just click through one last time, feel free. What a treasure it was, and will always be to me...

You can click on the website link underneath his picture to the right, or just below here. The "littlemanricky" domain no longer exists.
