The Sweet Things in Life

I've had a bit of a rough week. Monday was National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Rememberance Day and we lit a candle for our baby boy. My grief goes through these huge dramatic waves and as they're rocking and rolling and crashing in my heart, I try to act normal. My friends are wonderful, but I feel guilty talking about him - taking them for a ride on my waves. So, instead, I walk around seasick, pretending that everything is normal. And at the same time, everything IS normal. When I'm feeling like this, I've learned that there are only two ways to feel better - (1) to cry and acknowledge that it's okay that I miss Cole and (2) to dance and celebrate in the moments that I take for granted.
 
So, enjoy my list of 10 things I'm celebrating today...this week...this month...this year
 
1. Being in love
2. Marrying my best friend
3. Watching my kids sleep
4. Carrying on traditions I started when I was a kid
5. Seeing Disneyland through my three-year-old's eyes
6. Getting texts and facebook messages from friends who lit a candle for my sweet son
7. Snuggling my kids on the couch
8. The first hot chocolate of the Fall/Winter Season
9. Weekends spent as a family
10. Enjoying dessert on a Thursday night for no other reason than because we can!
 
Thursday night, last week, we decided to take the kids to get frozen yogurt. We brought it home and gave the babies their very first taste of chocolate frozen yogurt. Oh my goodness; they were like baby birds. They all gathered around me (notice the dogs also joined us) and opened their mouths waiting desperately for their turn to get a bite. If you look at the top left photo, you'll see Aiden eating a bite and Jake waiting for his bite in the background.
