It's hard to believe it's September 4, 2012.
Eighteen years ago today,
my brother and his wife had their first daughter,
My first niece.
She was such a butterball at 10 pounds, and we all fell instantly in love with her.
She went to Heaven far too soon.
She was only 4.5 months old when she passed away...
mere days after receiving her 4-month vaccinations.
I was only 13.
But they lived with us, so I was so blessed to be able to spend lots of time with her.
She was such a happy and healthy baby.
And I was blessed enough to take the last photos of her.
Now, I wish I had kept this outfit for Hattie to wear.
That would have been so neat. :-)
Happy 18th Birthday, Sweet Girl!
We all love you so much! :-)
