Today, we were out eating lunch and spotted an Indian version of Ellie. I kid you not, this little girl looked just like our Peanut. Her head was exactly like Ellie's, she even had fuzzy hair like Elle. Their hands were identical and she was bouncing up and down on her mom. Just like Ellie. The same hands. The same chubby fingers. And the exact. same. sneezes.
Besides her dark skin and dark eyes, she looked just like Ellie. We couldn't quit staring at her.
I miss her so much. So, so much. I want my baby back. I want her to hold and snuggle. I want her silly giggles and growls to break up the silence that seems to hang everywhere since she's been gone. I miss how she would grab my face and give me big sloppy open mouth kisses.
Peanut, I'll love you forever. I'll like you for always. As long as I'm living, my baby you'll be.
