lily's gravemarker came in about a week and half ago . the area she is buried in is baby's only so it has to be a marker and not a stone... anyway we went with a pinky granite *pink being her favorite color* so it took a little while longer to come in...

oh Chelle, I am so sorry. I can only imagine how hard it must be to pick out the gravestone for your child. I believe that your little girl is having a wonderful time right now, and maybe she is playing with puppies. Sending hugs and prayers to you and your family.
How are you feeling? Baby Grace will be here soon, won't she?

I've been having bhfontractns and real contraptions for weeks lucky they don't have any rhythm To them so my cervix is still closed high and long. Gracie is due July 30th but the plan is to induce her July 21st so less than a month left.

most days he does ok then we have days like yesterday ... you could tell he was upset so i asked him what was wrong and he just kept repeating i miss Lily I want Lily i can't remember what she looks like... we have a photo album of her pics but it's a little out of his reach (not on purpose just where we put it) so i reminded him he can ask and we'll get it down for him anytime he wants plus i reminded him he can write in his journal.. he had theaphy yesterday so they went over again it's ok for him to feel sad or happy or whatever emotion he has at that moment he doens't have to feel guilty . (i've told him this a mil,ion times but it seems to help more coming from someone other then us)

i took him today to put flowers out and help me clean up her marker (major storms and tornados wednesday night so mud everywhere) which seems to have helped some... i'm hoping we dont havea ny more major set backs once grace arrives but i figure we will.

That is so heartbreaking. What about making a small album just for him? He could choose some of his favorite photos and it would be his.
