Yes we are still ALIVE!!

Well i think this is well and truly long over due. Yes we are still ALIVE! We are all going ok. My little boy Jai turned 1 last month. I cant believe it, it has gone so so quick. It only feels like yesterday that we had our baby girl with us. We miss her terribly. Its still no easier. I cant believe it was 2yr on the 13th June that Skyla went to heaven. The days apart are going so quick yet my heart is still broken. People say time heals all wounds. Im sorry to say but that is not true. Well it isnt for me anyways. I just take it day by day and its my two beautiful boys that keep me going :) I love you Blake Skyla and Jai, xx

We finally picked out Skyla's Headstone and it is the most beautiful one i have ever seen. Nothing but the best for our princess. I hope you love it baby girl. It took us nearly two years to find the perfect one but i was glad we waited as it is perfect.

Blake is in yr 5 at school. He is off to Canberra on Monday for a overnight school excursion. He should have fun but it is freezing there. Hope he stays rugged up. Packing lots of warm clothes for him i will. Blake seems to be doing well at school and is still playing soccer on the weekends. This year he is playing goaly half games. Seems to be enjoying it. He is still loving his scooter and skateboards. Any chance he gets he wants to go to the skate park. Getting too cold now for that.

Jai has been walking since he was 10mths. Looking at him you would think he is already 2 or older even, LOL he is a big boy. Cheeky too. He loves his brother so much. They adore each other. I love watching them play together. I could sit and watch for hours. They just laugh and laugh. Jai is very cheeky too.

For Jai's birthday weekend we had lots of family come stay from New Zealand. It was so nice of the ones that could come and spend time with us. We had a big party for Jai at one of the parks near us. It was an awesome day with all our family and friends. Jai got some lovely presents. He got so spoilt. It was a bittersweet weekend as on the Sunday we unveiled Skyla's headstone. Its a big thing in New Zealand. Unveiling of a headstone. We did this on the same weekend so that family from NZ could be here for both. We also had family come from QLD and Melbourne. It was awesome everyone being here. Had a great weekend.

I also wanted to thank everyone who thought about Skyla on her 2yr anniversary. I was overwhelmed with all your love and support from everyone all over the world. I have never even met most of you yet u still thought about us. You are all amazing people. Thankyou so much. People lit candles, released balloons and even took photos. Thankyou so so much.

So many CDH babies have passed away lately. It is so sad. Its devastating that so many parents are going through what we went through. There have also been few survivors. You kids are amazing. We are so proud of all of you. Angels and survivors. All Angels are always in my heart, xxx

I wont bore you with anymore. I will let u enjoy looking at some pics over the last few months. I will try keep this updated but i spend most days on Facebook these days. You can add me as a friend if you like. There is a link on the right --
