Happy Due Date, Sprout.

Our first little bean sprout. We think of you often. Miss you daily. I even find myself thinking about you, the personality you would have had, and especially as we approach our gender scan, I think about if you were a girl or a boy.

It's a bitter sweet day. Obviously we are expecting again and are so grateful for the miracle we've been given. But that doesn't make us forget. Not the feeling we had when we learned about you, seeing your grandparents react, all of your aunties being so excited for your arrival. I wasn't certain we would ever experience those things.

Your arrival told us to hang in there. It brought J and I closer together. Encouraged us to share our journey a bit more publicly. I grieved like I  never have before. But, as I healed, it brought me the hope I needed to keep moving forward.

This weekend J and I have agreed to make no other plans. We are spending the weekend together. Enjoying each others company, remembering you, and doing some special things, just the two of us.

Thank you for watching out for us. For looking over our current baby, your younger sibling. We will never forget how you changed our lives. We will always love you.

Love and hugs little baby,

Your Mama

  1. Aw, this is very sweet. My first due date is rapidly approaching as well and as it draws near I've been trying to figure out how to remember the occasion that should have been without it being sad.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of happiness and not sadness!

  2. Very sweet. Due dates are always hard :(

  3. Happy Birthday Sprout.

    I'm glad you are spending time remembering this weekend. I think it's so emotionally healthy to take that time. You are lucky for both this new baby and to have had sprout. Thinking of you.
