Running with my Angel

Our fam. We made shirts that said Team Sienna and on mine it said Mommy Loves You! Quin's said Daddy Loves You! and Gavin's said Big Brother Loves You! We also had a picture of her cute feet on there.

My mother in law and Quin's aunt who ran with us. They were such great support!

Last Saturday there was a 5k called Running with Angels and the proceeds went to Angel Watch and they are a group that helped me and Quin prepare for Sienna to come. They helped with the funeral and even gave us some counseling in time of need. They are an amazing group! The race took place at the Thanksgiving Gardens. It was so beautiful. I have never been there and I loved it. I wasn't planning on getting a good time for the race so I just did a nice jog the whole time and Quin was awesome to keep up with me. Right before the finish line we picked up Gavin and my mom gave us some balloons that we ran across the finish line with and then let the balloons go. It was such a beautiful race and we finished in 32 minutes. I had about 20 people supporting us and joined us for the race. I did a team called Team Sienna and we had a lot of people there. It was definitely a spiritual race and pretty emotional. I could feel Sienna with me there and I loved it. I only got 2 pictures of the race cause my dad took all the pictures so I will have to get more from him.

Sienna's Headstone

Sienna's headstone got laid last Thursday just before Mothers Day which was perfect. My brother in law works for a granite company so he provided the granite slab and him and my sister paid for it. They even picked out what it would like like on front so it would be a surprise and I absolutely love it. It is so perfect! I love that they put the lamb on it and the picture of her feet is the exact replica of her cute little feet. If you look closely it even has a ring that she had in her picture. I have already gone and seen it 3 times since it was put it. I love it so much and it is so nice that her grave is finally complete. Mothers day was a little hard but I felt her spirit with me so much that I was able to make it through the day without breaking down. Time is definitely healing me cause I have noticed that I am starting to do better then I was a month ago.
