4 Years, Remembering Austen

Last Tuesday marked four years since Austen's death. Though his birthday is two days after the anniversary, the anniversary and the days approaching it always seem to be the hardest.

Last weekend I sat at our dining room table with Brendon, thinking about the week to come, and cried. It makes me sad to think about him being gone. In some ways, it seems like just yesterday that he was here, and in others, it seems like he's been gone forever... I've had two girls since then, and even though Lilleigh knows all about Austen, it's crazy to think she will never get to meet him.

Adeline at 7 months

This month Adeline turned 7 months! Here's a bit about Adeline this month...

People often say the girls look alike. They totally do, but they're also each very distinct. What do you think?
