10 Months

First of all, I can't believe it's already August.  More than that, I can't believe it's already been 10 months since we said good-bye to little Sofia.

This week all the little kids in the neighborhood walked to school with their families and while I sat in traffic looking at their cute faces I thought about how we'll never get to walk Sofia to her first day of school.  I know that had she lived she would only be 10 months now but still, the future-thinking got the best of me and I was sad that we will miss out on that with her in the years ahead.

After a night and early morning full of thunderstorms I received a text and photo from my SIL, Sarah.  It was a photo of a rainbow this morning.  I suppose Sofia was saying hello on this 10 month anniversary.  I'm glad she shared it with me so I could get "the message" too...

After work today I stopped by a little shop called "The Cottage Door".  They have all kinds of cute little decor for the house, wickless candles, etc.  I stop in every few months to check out their new inventory.  Today there was no question these caught my eye and of course- I bought them!  Even though they are intended to be zipper pulls or cell phone charms, I think I'll hang them from my rear view mirror.  A ladybug for Sofia, a bee for Sam.

When I got home and before we went out for dinner my sister, Andrea stopped by for a quick visit.  She bought me a little souvenir while on a trip to CO.  She saw it & said she just had to get it.  It's a "good luck" token and I'll probably keep it safe inside my purse.  Lord knows I could use it!  Ladybugs are supposed to bring good luck to so...

We went to dinner to Kona tonight.  Mostly because I was craving some crab rolls since I woke up this morning (luckily those are safe to eat while pregnant) and the macadamia nut chicken.  It was tasty as usual and I am stuffed.  While we were walking in to the restaurant I commented to Tim how every time we go there I think about how this was the last place we went out to dinner before Sofia died.  I have mixed emotions about that.  I guess it was fitting that we went there today, 10 months later.

Miss you & love you Sofia Rose!
