I am missing this sweet little face tonight.
She left Sunday afternoon to go to the beach with her Aunt Ellen, cousins (Chandler, Patton, and Mills) and Nana. She is having the time of her life - swimming in the indoor pool, playing in the sand, bungee jumping, shopping, eating, playing, laughing. I miss her. Wilson keeps asking where Emma Claire is and Henderson keeps looking around, like he's waiting for someone else. I can only imagine what it's like to lose a child. Here I sit, missing her, but knowing she's only 5 hours away, and God willing, will be back in 2 days. I have seen pictures of her on Facebook everyday that my dear SIL posts with her cell phone. I have talked with Ellen and Di Anna multiple times a day, and I know everything she's said and done (for the most part). Still, it feels like a part of my own body is missing - this sweet sweet child, who I cuddle with every night and who makes me laugh with her funny comments and questions.
SO, in honor of Emma Claire (and in case she is homesick and is able to look at the blog from a computer at the beach) here are some pictures of her bedroom!
This is my favorite room of the house - literally - I picked out everything for this room and my mom made much of it - it is a forever room (I hope), not too childish, but girly enough for a girly girl. She has been in this room since she was 24 months old (well, not this EXACT room - 2 houses later, but the same furniture and bedding, etc.). I love you Emma Claire and I miss you! Have fun, be sweet and be safe!
