I just finished a project that I started eight and a half years ago, right after Stinkerbell was born. We knew The Stink was going to be our last baby, so that knowledge is what prompted me to trace all of our hands. Stinkerbell was a bruiser and I wanted to get her hand traced while she was still little.
On Mother's Day of the same year, Peanut Head gave me the sweetest card ever. It said "Sometimes just holding hands is holding on to everything."
I'm not normally a sappy person, but that just melted my heart and I knew the sentiment had to go with our hand outlines.
I only wish it hadn't taken me eight years to put it all together.
