How did I get so far behind? After I posted Day 7, everything kind of went a little wonky. The beautiful little baby of my dear friends (and the subject of Day 7) was moved to NICU and I kind of lost the oomph to continue the book. Rest assured, she's doing fine. She's still in NICU (although at a bigger & better children's hospital), but my friends still have a long road ahead of them.
Their drama made me want to spend more time with my daughter MAKING the memories, rather than preserving them. We spent more time on the couch cuddling and reading. We put puzzles together and played play-dough. We spent hours playing "I Spy" and "Yummy/Yucky".
Flash forward to one month later and I finally feel like I can finish this project. So, here's day 8 for you:
And Day 9:
I need to finish up days 11 & 12 tonight. Hopefully I'll be able to post them tomorrow.
