It is hard to get Tori to smile sometimes, but we do a little routine where we go "tongue" and we stick out our tongue, "teeth" and we all grin and show our teeth, and then "kisses" and we get kisses. It was more of a strategy to see what teeth she had so that we could brush them. But now we use it for pictures. Mind you I had to take 10 pictures to get this one!
I felt the need to post a picture of her today. Today has not been as productive as it should have been and I found myself stumbling onto a number of blogs, one in particular Bad Mummy. Flipping back through the posts there was one about a brave little girl called Maddie that passed away last April. Tori about is the same age as Maddie and I just want to hug her today, but she is at her grandparents on a Tuesday. The day is going so slowly!
Her mothers blog has a number of links about how you can help to support the family and I am amazed at how the Blog-sphere has banded together to support them. Technology used for retail aims such as paypal has been used to support the grieving parents and sites such as Mommy blips also has an official page on the blog posts made for Maddie.
My prayers are with her family at this hard time.
