one year

Postby love_the_daschies » Thu Apr 29, 2010 07:34 am

I can't believe it has been a year. I thought today would be hard but manageable. Instead I am sitting up with the baby with tears running down my face remembering the events of last year. Today is so much harder than I ever thought it would be - the memories are so raw. It is so weird how some†hing that is such a part of you and feels like a lifetime ago - can really be so fresh and new.

The hubby and I are making a big dinner and some cupcakes later today. Thankfully he is home with me. I am trying to get through the day with extra cuddles from him and the baby.

We love you Vincent and miss you so much li††le boy.

Jamie, I could have written your exact post. Today is one year since I lost Rylan. I am feeling very similar to you.

I can't help but flash back to that awful evening and the events that led to the loss of my little boy.

Pregnant again, my emotions are all over the place.

Your plans for this evening sound wonderful. I was thinking about getting a cake myself.

I will light a candle for both of our babies this evening.

Take care of yourself.

Hi Jamie,

It is so unpredictable of how we feel. If we expect the worst, we often find ourselves dealing with it much better than expected. And sometimes we brace ourselves for a day or moment, and think we are ok, but then realize that it is much harder.

When it hits me hard, I don't try to escape the feelings, but always try to accept them and allow them to happen.

Creating something special on a day like this, is a wonderful idea to remember little Vincent.

I am thinking of your babies today.

Take care.

I am sorry I missed this yesterday, I was away from my computer all day. HUGS. The anniversaries are so hard, everything that has calmed down gets stirred up again. I hope the day was peaceful.

I hope you were able to spend your day remembering your first son while loving on your 2nd one. I'm sure Vincent was smiling down on all 3 of you today.
