So long, Savannah Jane

our little family was blessed with a wonderful 9 month old baby girl for a couple of weeks. it's a rather sad story, and it has so many twists that i don't have time to write about all of it. i can tell you this much: she left a hole in our hearts the size of the grand canyon. what a beautiful, wonderful little angel. we'll miss her dearly.

some things we'll always remember about her:
  • the way she kicked her legs and flailed wildly whenever she's excited.
  • how she used to raspberry every so often when she's happy.
  • the little vein that ran right across the bridge of her nose.
  • her big blue eyes
  • how she'd coo in the morning to let us know she's awake, then how it would get more urgent the longer we'd try to sleep ...
  • how excited she would get when she saw us first thing in the morning
  • falling asleep holding her bottle straight up in the air
part of me is absolutely sure she'll be back. there are some very compelling arguments to be made for the point, but i won't go into those. let's just say that we're extremely familiar with her previous case (our wonderful friends adopted her older brother several months ago).

so long, savannah jane. we all miss you terribly and hope to see you again soon.
