Baby Steps

This past weekend I went to visit some friends that just had their little boy Harper. My mom traveled with me and was able to visit my great-aunts that live in the same area. I had a wonderful time visiting with family and an amazing time hanging out with some amazing people that are in my and John’s life. We were there with Christine and the new parents Lance and Stacy – and baby Harper. I will write more about everything that was going on in my head that day and things thoughts are still swimming…

..because they would have been the best of friends…
I still look awkward holding babies…

  1. Kimberly- Such an awkward, hard and emotional thing to have to do. I tried to avoid it as long as possible, but then at the expense of hurting friends and families feelings, at some point just have to do it. Nothing easy about holding a newborn baby after you lose yours- being happy and joyful for your friends, even though your heart is aching inside. Psalms 69:3 I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God. Praying for ya!


  2. It can be difficult holding babies when you can no longer hold your own. Like Paige said, at some point it has to be done. It'd be kinda hard to avoid it forever. He's a beautiful little boy. I imagine quite a bit was running through your head.


  3. You look fine! It is hard no doubt and I faced it just days after my Megan Grace went to Heaven.

    At the time I had to and I've done it many times since just because many family members and friends had little ones literally in the same week we lost our daughter.

    I'm proud of you for doing it 🙂
