I am also from the disboutique thread, and I can't wait to read more...I am so sorry for your loss, I cannot even begin to imagine what it feels like to lose a child...you are in my thoughts and prayers, and I hope that you have a great trip to Disney World. I am so excited about the BIG GIVE, and can't wait to see Isabelle model all the outfits! Isabelle and Levi are both such beautiful children!

Hello Alicia and family! You are in my thoughts and prayers!
The whole situation is so overwhelming to me that I really don't know what to say. I can clearly see from the pictures and your descriptions, that Levi was a beautiful, happy, and very much loved little boy! I really appreciate the fact that you are returning to Disney for your family's sake and I wish you all much healing, love and Disney magic!

I am one of the ones making an outfit and a couple of other things for the BIG GIVE. I can't wait to see Isabelle in the outfit I'm making for her. I'm glad I came over here, because I now have faces to put with names.
Thank you so much for being here and Isabelle's outfit! Can't wait to see it!

I'm happy to be part of the BIG GIVE but too scared to make clothes for someone else so I've got something else in mind that I hope Isabelle will like.

Can't wait to see more pictures as the BIG GIVE outfits arrive. The ones I've seen have been beautiful but I know they will be even more stunning when Isabelle is modeling them!
Oh, honey, I am just honored that each of you are doing ANYTHING! I would be afrai to sew for someone else's child too, although I am sure whatever you would make would be lovely! I am sure you are very talented!

May I also say that your hand sewn outfits are AMAZING!!!! Bravo!!

I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss. Your family pictures show a gorgeous boy.

I'm so glad y'all are going back to Disney.

Y'all are in my prayers every day. I can't wait to see the pictures from your trip!

Thank you. I am sure those ladies are wanting some cheerleaders! I can't wait, I am so excited. I was so giddy when I got the mail, which was a good thing, b/c I thought about the accident most of the way home, so I was sad.

My daughter was born last October and we will be taking her to WDW this Christmas when she will be 15 months. I've read your trip report and cried at parts but I have also shown Hope your photos and told her about Isabelle and Levi.

My parcel will be winging its way from the UK so I hope it doesn't take forever!!
OMG! I can't believe I am going to get a package from UK! That is too sweet, I am sure it will be so lovely! Give your Hope a hug for me!

I remember you ice cream dress the most. It is beautiful and I am truly amazed that you made them all via hand-sewing.
Thank you! Can't wait to show Isabelle off in her new customs! You are all so AWESOME!

Jenny, I just pray you will never know! NO mother should ever have to suffer this pain.

OK- B/c I know you all can't stand it (lol) here are the pics of Isabelle opening her FIRST BIG GIVE CUSTOM! Now, a few words first, this was at 10PM, after a very long hot day, and a baseball game! She she's tired, and messy (Matt doesn't think I should post these for that reason), but here they are! This is just her opening the package, she was much too tired to model!



Check out her eyes in this one! LOL!



Then she wanted to lay it just right! Too cute!



As she stumbled to bed, she said, "Mommy, my outfit! I don't want it to get dirty!" Me -"OK, I'll put it up!"

It may sound strange since I've never talked to you before. But, I think of you and your family often, especially on our recent trip to WDW. Sawyer is 1 month younger than Levi and I found myself tearing up several times while watching him enjoy Disney. I can't imagine how hard it must be for you. I lost a nephew to SIDS when he was 6 months old. I never had the privilege of meeting him. But, I see the pain my SIL endures on a daily basis, even 9 years later. So, I know it takes a strong and loving person to keep going after a tragedy like this.

I just wanted to give you a

I started an outfit for Isabelle yesterday. I hope to have it finished soon-ish!

Okay, it's 1:00am and I'm rambling. Time for bed. Can't wait to read more PTR and to see more gorgeous pictures of your children.

Oh Heather, thank you! I think Sawyer is just a doll. I figured they were close in age. I understand how much pain your SIL is in, believe me.



Can't wait to see your outfit! Any hints? LOL?

I am so glad to help you sew again!
