3 Months

Wow I can't believe it was 3 months ago today that I delivered Sienna. Today has been a little rough for me but I am trying to make it through. This ornament was given to me by my visiting teachers yesterday and I think it is so beautiful. It says "Every life leaves something beautiful behind" I love the saying! Our little family has a tradition of getting each other an ornament that represents what we went through that year. I got a willow tree angel with a heart and I didn't get Sienna one yet so this is a perfect ornament for her. She sure has left many beautiful things behind! And we have received many blessings because of her. She sure is watching over our family. I am dreading Christmas Day cause I know it will be hard without her especially with seeing my family and their brand new babies but I am trying to prepare myself for that day. I want to think of something I can do in honor of her that day. One BLM mother had mentioned to carry around a stuffed animal that day so it is like carrying my daughter around. I may carry her bear that was made out of the fabric she was held in. That bear is so precious to me and I don't want to get it dirty but it may help to have it with me on special days like that. Also I really need to start on her patch blanket out of the rest of the left over fabric from the bear but I seem to have so many projects that I am in the middle of that that has been put on the back burner.
I also have had questions about fixing up my blog and maybe some of you amazing moms that have amazing blogs can help me. I am wanting to make my template into 3 columns so I can put stuff on both sides of what I post cause I have so much that I want to add to this blog plus I also want to have the headings up top where I can put a tab for Sienna's story and a few other things so it is easier for people to read. Can you please e-mail me at teresafarmer13@msn.com or comment on how I can improve my blog. I am dumb when it comes to being creative so I need help. Thanks!

What a beautiful ornament!

About your blog, I see you're using Cutest Blog on the Block - they have 3-column formats on their site, but it just may not be available with the background you're using currently - you'll have to dig through and see what they have to offer. I had toyed with going to a 3-column format, but liked my background too much and it wasn't avail. in 3 columns.

I love that ornament. It is perfect. Such a sweet gift.

When I wanted to redo my blog, I cheated. I have no idea how to do the whole background thing. I tried and it just wouldn't work for me especially with all the changes they did here. So I went to Francesca at Small Bird Studio. She put it all together for me after I told her what I wanted. Here is her site http://smallbirdstudioorders.blogspot.com/
