Happy 6 months old

Happy 6 months to the most beautiful boy I've ever known. I'm not sure how I feel today...or most days for that matter. I have wanted to blog several times but I have gotten on here and not known what to write about. Its just more of the same sad story and endless emptiness. I feel numb, I guess is the best way to say it. And that almost makes me sadder than anything. I'm resigned to this life without Andrew...a life full of "birthdays" each one taking me farther and farther away. We should be doing today up big...maybe a little cake for me and extra helping of milk for the Drewbie. I'm sure there would have been a present or two. Or maybe there wouldn't have been. Maybe we would have been more unaware of this day since we would have been so busy actually raising our son. I'm hyper aware of the big he would have been 6 months 13 days he will have been dead for 6 months. It seems like a lifetime ago.

My thoughts are still consumed by the "would haves" and "should haves." Customers at work with their babies who I assume are older than Drew and therefore are "safe" babies to talk to are now turning out to be younger than him. To me, he is still a newborn and to see such big babies who are actually younger than him makes me sad. I wish I knew his 6 month old face and hands and chunky thighs. my sweet boy. Momma is so proud to be your momma. Even though you aren't here today, my heart feels complete because you once were. I am sending all the love I can muster your way today precious. I pray that somehow you can feel it and know how very much I miss you. Love, Momma


  1. I know we've been busy and I feel like I should tell you that I always think about him and I never think of either of you apart from each other. But you know that.

    You are a special mother. I miss him, too, but not like you do, I know.

    Love you.

  2. i just read your blog heart ached so much for you on the 13th..there is not a minute that goes bythat I don't think of that special little boy.And I know without a doubt in my mind that precious angel knows how much his Momma loves him. I love you so much and am so proud of the Momma you are. One day a little baby is going to be so lucky to have you and Austin as parents.I love,you, Momma

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss. The image of your mother's love for your son on your blog says it all. Wishing you had Drew in your arms these 6-months and more.
