we got Belle's outfit today. we wanted her to be wearing something we picked out for pictures, not just whatever the hospital puts her in. we got her a soft pink blanket, and a teddy bear too. we also got an album to keep her pictures in.

it was hard, i had a breakdown in the store because everything comes in packs of 3; 3 hats, 3 pairs of socks, 3 onesies. i cried because she'll never need more than one. every outfit that came together was labled "take me home!" which i just took as a cruel joke. anyway, i realized i'm just not ready to leave the house and walk around in public. saw a baby in an infant carrier and cried harder. and my 3 year old pointed out everything in the cart that's "for when the baby comes out!" still dont know what to do about the kids. if she lives long enough i would like them to see her, i just dont know how to explain that she's not coming home with us.

 I'm so sorry mama.  But you are doing what is best.  A friend (although not very close) was faced with a similar situation, and did the same thing.  They got an outfit, blanket, and took picutres.  It's all you can do.  My friend also got some notecards (that were pink, her baby was a girl as well) and had her handprints and footprints put on the card to add to the photoalbum.

I can't even imagine how you are feeling, but I think you are really doing something great for your baby.

I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. It's a very pretty outfit you chose for her and the blanket looks so comfy. Is there any way they would be able to understand that she was such a special little girl that she was made into an angel to watch over them or something like that? I have no idea how I would handle it if I was in your shoes but maybe it would comfort them to know she's watching over them.
