Avery Kate was a healthy ten week old baby girl who went to sleep for a nap and woke up in Heaven. We miss her every second of every day. SIDS became a reality in our family and we will never forget our beautiful baby girl.

I looked through some of my latest posts and realized that I just didn't give her life enough credit. Even though she was only here for 9 weeks and 5 and a half days, that little girl was soooo busy! She went to Holly Beach when she was only 9 days old, even saw the Gulf of Mexico. She's had numerous trips to New Iberia and Youngsville. She's been to Target, Wal-Mart, the Mall, and even The Nail Studio in Lake Charles. She's been to countless restaurants and friend's houses. I took her to the McNeese State University homecoming parade and everything. She rarely stayed home all day and night. She's had a better life in her short time with us than many people have in a lifetime. We loved her so much and took her everywhere with us.
I would sometimes get jealous of some of our friends who would be able to go anywhere and do anything they wanted and always had someone to watch their kids. I used to think they were so lucky. Now I know the truth. We are the lucky ones. I had almost ten weeks with our baby girl and never went an entire day without seeing her sweet face. I had her in my arms every night at 10:00 to give her a nighttime bottle. I got to snuggle with her until bed time each night. No matter where Brandon and I went, Hallie and Avery Kate were right along with us. I love that about her life. I feel like she knew us and her sister. I know she was only a baby, but I know she loved us as much as we loved her. Actually, I know she still loves us as much as we love her. Gosh, I miss that baby girl!
