not sure how many of you know but we lost a little girl at 33 weeks gestation in July 2011. our oldest was newly 5 at the time very excited about having a new baby sister.
well tonight as we were walking from downtown home after her cheerleading practices she burst out into tears! I stopped and asked her what was wrong well she proceeds to tell me 'I wish Phoenix (the baby) could have a life so I could play with her and see her grow up' I wasnt/still not sure what to say to her besides it's ok to cry, it's ok to be sad we all have days/times that we are sad still about her not being with us. But it just kind of crushed me that she was so upset.
the only thing that I can think of that may have even triggered her to thinking about her sister (which I could be completely wrong I know this) is that there was a newborn at cheerleading tonight but I thought that baby was there every week maybe tonight was just the first time she noticed? I have no clue
sorry this is so long..i'm just rambling now venting/thinking about this now that the girls are finally asleep
Mommy to two girls here on earth and one in Heaven watching over us
