She still takes my breath away...

I was sitting here alone and opened up Lily's photo album and tears sprung to my eyes and pride filled my soul to overfilling. I just looked at her tiny, perfect body and felt such an overflowing love for her. I spent time looking at how her little fingers were curved, how her feet were crossed at her ankles, and the little bit of earlobe that stuck out from underneath her cap. I have tears in my eyes now as I wonder how much Cooper will look like his big sister.

I had someone unintentionally hurt my feelings about a month ago by the comment that I will never know true love until the place Cooper in my arms. Obviously, this person wasn't thinking and I politely told her that I already learned about true love on the day that I met Lily. Absence of her heartbeat did not change mine...every beat of mine continues to love her.

Our babies teach us about true love. Lily taught that to you, Cooper will only enhance that knowledge. Praying for you daily.

Too true. I saw the cutest baby t-shirt today that said: "I am so lucky because I have the best sister" I couldn't help but think of Cooper instantly. Hugs :)

I absolutely agree.. last month someone told me that "at least I only had a short while to get attached to Ella" honestly.. I smiled and said I became "attached" to her her from the moment I knew I was pregnant.. still hurts the same as if she were 10..

I haven't told anyone about that til now.. People don't miss them like we do, because they don't love them like we do.. still those jabs still hurt..even if they weren't attended to be hurtful..
