8 month birthday

If Hannah was still here with us, she would have turned 8 months old yesterday. Because all my memories of Hannah are of her as a newborn, I find it hard to imagine what she would be like at this age. She would be so much bigger than I remember her! And I'm sure she would be learning new things every day, as she progressed through milestones. So many things we are missing out on.

We have just got back from a week up in the North Island, attending a wedding and catching up with friends. Jeremy was a groomsman and loved being a part of the wedding party. The wedding was a lot of fun, but there were quite a few babies and pregnant women there which was hard given that Hannah wasn't there with us. A few people asked if we had kids, and we got to tell them about her. It's always hard seeing their responses though - looks of shock, and often tears in their eyes. 

We took a few photos as reminders of Hannah:

 At Omaha beach, where we stayed over the time of the wedding

In Auckland... an 'H' for Hannah (looking out from Cornwall Park)

A few other photos from our trip:

  1. Beautiful photos :) Milestones seem really hard, I am saying a prayer for you now. I hope to see you at the link up tomorrow!

  2. Thank you Tesha! Yes milestones and significant dates are really hard, as you know. Thanks for your prayers xx

  3. I too often look at each month as to what my son would be doing, and I imagine I will do this for many years to come. Beautiful pictures! Anytime we are at a beach, we write our son's name in the sand as well. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Visiting from Tesha's link up.
