Flowers for Sissy

A storm swept through the area today and the wind broke a cluster of flowers off our hydrangea bush. Max brought the flowers to me and after I said, "Oh Max, thank you, they're beautiful!" He said, "Put in Sissy's garden." So we did.

Sweet boy. Who knows what goes on in his mind. I doubt he remembers Ellie and any reference he makes to her, is likely because of what we say or do on a regular basis. It breaks my heart to know that Max will have little to no memory of his sister. But I love it when he brings her up on his own. And love it even more when he wants to do something for her.

So Ellie. So silly. So goofy. I love the "Look at how cute I am" look.

Dave and I went to the Twins Game this night with some friends, and dressed the kids in their Twins gear just so they didn't feel left out!

Ellie would wave her arm back and forth to get herself going in her bouncy seat. She was always tickled with herself.

It also makes me really sad, knowing that as Natalie ages she'll forget Adam. But for now, I know she remembers him, and I love when she brings him up out of the blue. Little sweethearts.


Great pictures. I am sure your son will have more memories than you think, if you guys talk about her and show him pictures, he will remember. At least that it what I hope for my youngest with her brother...we are ALWAYS telling her stories that happened because I don't want her to forget. ((Hugs)) Giving the flowers to his sissy was so sweet!
