Friend Baby

My heart shot into my throat today when I saw these pictures of our friends little baby girl on Evan’s boppy. I used that boppy to help me sleep upright and support my lower back for every single night of my last trimester so I know it well. It breaks my heart more each day to deal with the reality that Evan never got to know one single item we had prepared for him.
I want my baby to be propped up on this boppy, not theirs, and yet, I gave it to them to use.. Sigh! She sure is cute though.


They are comming over for dinner tonight, Dave is currently installing their car seat into the same damn spot Evan’s car seat was installed in order to transport them to and from dinner tonight. They don’t have a car of their own. Wish me strength. I must be desperet for friendship. I will be once again spending the night living in the ghostly palor of what was "almost" my life.

“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. Good mommy advice – never let yourself compare your baby to another baby. It always makes you feel crummy. I think it applies even in this situation. *hugs*

  2. (((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

  3. wow—-that WOULD be difficult!!
    I cannot imagine how hard it will be…..HUGS! be strong…yet, it IS ok if she touches your soul and you break down—this mama will hopefully understand!!!
    That baby IS gorgeous—-and I never saw Evan, so I cannot comment on that, but I’m sure he was perfect!!!!!
    HUGS again!!

  4. Well, she’s definitely not as cute as Evan, that’s for sure.
    This must be so hard, I can’t imagine. I even feel weird about using Julia’s things for the new babe, isn’t that terrible? But you have such a kind and giving spirit, Jaime. I adore you ❤
