On this day last year…

I have decided to leading up to the anniversary of my babies death, I want to remember how I felt those last few weeks with him, so each day I am going to revisit what if anything, I posted or wrote in my journal about him.
Here is what I said on November 21st, 2007.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. Those pictures are beautiful. I sometimes go back and re-read the entires prior to Saige’s *arrival* and I have had to either delete some or make them private, and the ones I didn’t I tagged life before loss because I was oblivious and so happy and never expected things to play out the way they did.

    • Thanks I love those pictures because I was truly in love and had no idea that I would never actually get to meet Mr.Evan alive on the outside. I am so blissfully unaware in those photos and just glowing with motherhood.
      I was just reading my journal I kept with Evan, with day by day changes and developments and I was thinking I am glad I wrote it all and kept it because I love re-reading the stuff I had to say before I knew anything could go wrong, I also look forward to comparing the details of how I was feeling with Evan to my future babies and I will do the same for them. When Evan first died I thought to myself, never will I ever keep a baby journal again it’s to heartreaking, but now a year later, I so greatful I have that, memories of our time together.

      • I took a couple belly pics with Saige but got lazy but this baby I’ve already started taking pictures and I am going to try to take some like you did when I am (God’s willing) around 36-38 weeks to cherish.

  2. Those belly pictures are so beautiful.
