When I went to look for pictures I was sad to see there weren't any. I have no specific memories of that day and I feel like it's forever lost. Our days with Ellie were limited and I hate to think that there was a day or minute of her life I can't recall. Going through the pictures and recalling lost memories daily has helped me a lot. But on the days with no pictures, I am very sad and feel guilty for not documenting every moment of her short life. I'm sure there will be a lot more days without pictures coming up, as the babies get bigger and busier, it gets harder to take pictures. :(
On some brighter notes...
Recipes: We are still needing recipes for our cookbook. In about two weeks, I will start putting everything together so if there is a family favorite you want to share- please do!! Please email them to email@example.com
Ellie's Light website: Franchesca has done it again! She has put together a beautiful website for us and it screams ELLIE! We are very excited for our big reveal. I just need to do a little tweaking and Dave needs to get some technical things set and then we will share it!
Legacy: I have "met" several other BLMs (Baby Loss Mamas) through this blog and am so inspired by the great things they are doing in honor of their babies. Please check out their websites.

Mommy misses you little girl. I know you were in my dream last night. I don't remember any of it, but I know we were together. I could feel it. Thank you Baby Girl, Mommy needed that. I love you!
