Happy first Easter Sophia & Ellie.
Last Easter you were still tucked safely inside my belly. Growing, kicking, pushing, and happy. Grandma had a special Easter Basket for the two of you to share. I still have the special box she used and I keep some of your very precious things in it today. We were all so happy and excited to be meeting the two of you in the next few months, little did we know how our lives would change so quickly.
Today I can imagine dressing you in Easter pretties and watching you crawl across the grass to all the colorful eggs. I wish this was our life, with the two of you physically in it. Instead we did things to remember you. We decorated eggs and wrote your names on them.
The Easter bunny thought of you too! He brought Sophia a very sweet pink tulip and Ellie a beautiful purple tulip. We will plant them in our yard and think of you when we look at them.
While we were away last week, your big sister thought of you too. We were down on the beach and someone had drawn a big heart in the sand. She wrote your names inside the heart because she loves you girls and misses you so much.
I miss you sweet girls. I hate that things are this way and that you can’t be here with us. But I do hope you are having a wonderful celebration in Heaven and Great-Grandma is helping you find the best eggs ever.
