Matilda Mae was taken far too soon and without reason or explanation - she died from SIDS. I know that Matilda's family have received great comfort and support from both the FSID and the blogging community during the hugely difficult time since their lives changed nine weeks ago.
Today, we come together.
Today, I (along with many other bloggers, including Matilda's mummy, Jennie) am supporting FSID as they begin their new life as The Lullaby Trust.

From this day forward, whenever I see bubbles, I will think of them as carrying the most beautiful lullaby up into the sky, just for Matilda Mae.
Sweet dreams, Baby Tilda. This song always reminds me of you:
