His New Best Friend

I put Aizen down to play and thought of something cute he was doing last night that I wanted to blog about. He's got one of those play mats that has toys suspending above him. He was under there last night playing when we heard him "talking" to his toys. Turned around and he had wiggled his way over to a rubbermaid tub and was talking to it, getting very excited and squealing.

Kids are just too funny.

That reminded me of when Ruby would talk to the laundry hamper. We have one that has disney princesses on it and she would spend so much time sitting in front of it talking with the princesses. LOL

Roo Roo Mini Mosaic ~ Another Update

Finished up the 5th plate and gosh ... wow... it's my Roo Roo!! I am so happy that I bought this kit and am able to have my favourite picture of her hanging up on my wall soon.

Mini Mosaic Update

I have been super busy the past week getting ready for Melody's Princess Tea Party that I forgot to update my Roo Roo project. I've started plate 5 and it has mixed blessings, it's of her face, so it is taking me a while as I am thinking of holding her in my arms as she fell asleep so many times.

So, here is the update on how it is looking.

Praise You In This Storm

I'm on my way to being able to worship once again. For the longest time I was very angry and upset that Abba would take my Roo from me and had a very hard time worshipping. I was listening to KLove (christian online radio station) for the first time and this is the song that came on moments after I tuned in.

The lyrics are so true with what I am going through in my walk right now.

The one lyric that really hits home with me is:

"And though my heart is torn
I will praise you in this storm."

Thank you Lord for giving this song to Casting Crowns to help others like me know that no matter what storm I am going through that I can still praise you and that you whisper "I'm with you." Praise you Abba, my only need and comforter, give my precious Roo an extra snuggle tonight.

This is a scrapbook page I made for my recovery book.

Roo Roo Mini Mosaic Craft Project

I've updated this on the 23rd of October and redid the pictures to show progress.
As my birthday present to myself, I bought myself this really cool mini mosaic kit from Pixel Hobby. It is based on the photo below of Ruby. I'm one the 1st plate of 9 to get done and thought I would document my progress every hour so that I know how long it will take to get it done. Check back for updates of progress.

New Room Signs

It has come to that time where Aizen is getting too big for the bassinet and needs to go into the crib. It is a bitter sweet time for us because Melody and Ruby were supposed to be sharing a room as Aizen would be moving into Ruby's old room.

We've kept Ruby's room and her door sign the way it has been for the most part. So, this week I am having to take out all of her things and put them in her angel chest. Her chest will be going where Aizen's bassinet is (by her memorial quilt). I'm moving around things in the room because I can't go in there without thinking of her the way the furniture is at the moment.

I made a sign for Aizen's door and decided to make a new one for Melody too. We have these up on the front of their doors. So, thought I would share what I made for them.

Can You Watch Your Brother ....

So I ask Melody if she can watch her little brother for a few moments so I can get the towels out of the dryer.
She was watching tv and he was on the floor in front of her. I ask her to watch him quite often when I need to check on something, just to let me know if something happens and I need to come back right away.
Well I come back and this is how I find the two of them. Melody is so protective of him and it's simply adorable how close they are already.

8 Months Since Saying Goodbye

It has been 8 painful months since our precious Ruby died. Everyday is still really hard for us and I in all honesty I have no idea when it will get better. It's still a struggle to get out of bed in the morning and simply function. I miss my Roo so very much.

I've been doing some scrapbooking today and made this letter for Roo. If you wish to read it, you'll need to click on it.

Special Ruby Scrapbook Page

This is a very special page that I am sharing with you. I was shopping at a digital store and sent a picture of one of the pages I did to them. I shared a bit of Ruby's story with her and I check back a bit later and there is this Beautiful kit there in memory of Ruby.

This is the first page I have made from Tori's kit, you can visit her Digital Scrapbook Store HERE. Tori, thank you once again for this gorgeous kit, it means more to me than you could ever imagine!!

I'm looking forward to making more pages with this great little kit!!

Scrapbooking For Today

I got busy and did some scrapbooking tonight. This has been great therapy for me and a great way to preserve my memories of the kiddos.

Ruby In Muskoka Scrapbook Page

This was Ruby's 2nd summer up in Muskoka. The first time we went she was only a few months old. Ruby LOVED the beach and picking up the sand in her hands. I made this page because that's a very special memory to me of her.
