One June 28th, 2011 Brooke Allard got the best 2nd birthday gift a girl could ever ask for, a baby sister. We were overjoyed to welcome our baby Bella into our life. At 7lbs 12oz she was the perfect completion to our family.
From the very first day the girls were inseperable. Brooke wanting to do everything with her baby sister, Bella wanting to be close to her big sister at all times. As sisters they complimented each other perfectly. Brooke being sensitive and shy at times, Bella being outspoken and determined.
Bella was our determined, temperamental, excited, smiling, daring little spitfire. Anything Bella wanted Bella got whether or not she was allowed. She picked her friends very carefully. If you were lucky enough to be included in her group of friends you recieved multiple hugs, open mouth kisses and love. If you were unfortunate enough to end up on her bad side watch out. You would not be permitted in the same room as her without her screaming, but there was always a chance with plenty of bribing you could sway her and be permitted in her inner circle.
We were lucky enough to spend almost 15 wonderful months with our baby girl before September 26th, 2012 when God called her to his side. Life without our Bella Ella has been excruciating. The emmence feeling of loss, the very real pain from grief, and the overwhelming feelings of longing for your baby to be in your arms has been the hardest thing I am sure we will ever face as a family
