I have never been this happy for this extended period of a time. I am always a very happy mother to a baby, but this has been a high for all of us. Everybody loves the Pickle.
I have never been more rooted in the present than now. Phoebe wrote the sweetest letter to Pickle with all of these specific things about her and her personality...it was so touching to know that a 12 year old found so many qualities in a 2 year old.
She truly is the light of our lives. I am devastated that this part of her life is over, but I have no regrets---I savored every single second. Truth.
