It has been three months since I have updated the blog. We've had a lot happen in that time. I will try to update...

We flew to Utah 4 days after Milli's birth for her funeral and burial. The mortuary in Michigan arranged for her travel and then the mortuary in Utah took over. We are very grateful to Jenkins-Soffe for the way that they have taken care of both of our girls. We were pleased that a former ward friend was our funeral director. It made the experience all the more personal for us.
The day after we arrived we went up to the cemetery to sign some paper work. We took a picture of Hope's headstone knowing that she would soon be joined by her younger sister. (Of course, we knew that at that point they were already together.)
The viewing was very nice and we felt a lot of support from friends and family. It was good to see Milli and to have more time with her. We actually spent a lot of time holding her (which we didn't do with Hope). It might sound strange, but I am really glad that we did. Each of the kids also held her. They hadn't in the hospital so I am glad that they did then. Their cousins wanted to hold her and once our kids saw the pictures of them holding Milli, they decided to.
