Warmth leads to rebirth leads to renewal leads to new shoes leads to shopping. I find myself perusing. Perusing leads to things like this:
I have never been a huge shopper for the kids - I got so many hand-me-downs I really didn't need anything - but seeing a lovely dress that I might have bought for Lula somehow solidifies in very tangible terms how gone she is. I so miss dressing her. Apart from needing access to her g-tube nothing mitigated the fun of it.

Buying clothes for Roan doesn't offset that one bit, partly because boys clothes tend to be so utilitarian or even downright frat boy-esque. I have decided that I am going to do my best to channel a little of Lula's whimsical style into Roan's outfits, so I bought him aqua Thai fisherman's pants and gold sandals. He digs it.
|A spring in his step!|
In honor of Spring Roan bought the love of his life (aka Ana) some flowers and insisted on carrying them home all by himself.
Here's to Spring: a new beginning.
