Sadness and Joy

On Friday 19th March 2010 my mum passed away surrounded by family. I miss my mum and grieve for the things that I won't be able to share with her, but I'm thankful for the special moments I shared with her in her last days, as well as the fond memories of the past. I'll remember my mum as a strong and independent woman who was very proud of me and loved me in her own funny way.

Mum was adamant that I was pregnant with a boy and on Tuesday 4th May at 2:51am, this gorgeous little bundle arrived. . .

. . . Abigail Suzanne Coppack, a girl. I have to say that I'm smitten with her and I'm not the only one. Although her big sister really wanted a baby brother, she now loves her baby sister very much.

Here are the three dearest people in my life, my husband Kyle, Makayla and little Abigail.

I made Makayla a special big sister dolly (and blew up my sewing machine in the process!) Here's some pictures of the doll.

I had never done anything like this before, and I'm rather proud of how it turned out. And Makayla liked it too!

And one last picture of "Little One" (this is Makayla's nickname for Abigail).

The last few months have been quite full on to say the least. Abigail is now 41/2 weeks old and I'm enjoying being mum to my two beautiful girls! I've even managed to do some crafting, so I hope to have some more posts very soon. I just might have to post more pics of "Little One" too!

Please do - more photos of your gorgeous girls would be lovely. Sending our love to you all. It is good to see you on your blog again. The doll looks gorgeous, you should be proud and even more proud of your other doll who's even more gorgeous.

I love the doll Sam and would love to know where you got the pattern. I am sorry I haven't emailed you or even called. It is slack and I am sorry. I am so glad to see that you are back blogging and love the rennovation of your blog. I hope you are well and aren't too sleep deprived. I am sure you have heard on the grape vine we are expecting another little bundle of joy in October. Look forward to catching up with you. You are in my throughts and prayers regularly so even though I haven't been in contact (very slack friend) rest assured you haven't been far from my thoughts.
Take care Ruthie
