For those of you who have been reading my blog since the start, you'll probably remember that we chose to carry a little monkey with us to represent Hailey. Well, I've officially changed the symbol!!!! We will now be representating our little Hailey with Tinkerbell. Let me explain why.
First off, I'm not much of a Disney fan myself. It's not that I don't like Disney, but honestly I don't really care much for it. None of the characters have really made an impression on me, except for Tinkerbell. I think fairies are so pure and adorable and I've always loved Tinkerbell...even more now! Before Hailey passed away we watched the movie Tinkerbell and I was telling the girls that I would describe Heaven to look just like Pixie Hollow. It was so gorgeous and magical!
After Hailey passed away I saw a little figurine of Tinkerbell standing with her arms folded and a little scowl on her face. It instantly reminded me of Hailey!!! She did absolutely love life, but I need to be real here and say that she did scowl at me often!!! Anyways, it struck me how much my little Hailey was just like Tinkerbell. She had the blonde hair, big blue eyes, skinny little body, and total pixie attitude!!! Now she also lives in Heaven, which is what I consider to be Pixie Hollow. And I can totally see her flying her little wings from her little Pixie Hollow down here to the "Mainland" to spread her silver pixie dust (or dimes in my case)!!!
So that's the scoop. Plus I do have to admit that I think Tinkerbell is much cuter than a monkey!!! So now when you see a family picture with Tinkerbell in it, you'll know that's our little Hailey!
