From Lisa

*This just deserves it's own post. From one of my best friends Lisa. I love you, Mrym, you are amazing.

To my lil stevie,

It’s been hard for me to think of what to say to you…I really loved you so much. I’ll never forget the day I had to pinch to stop the pee so I could run out and hear the yelps of the news that WE were having a baby! Yes, that’s right, from the very first day I have claimed you ; ) Your mom was our first bride, she got our first puppies, and then she gave us something even more—you, she became our first mom.

I’ve learned so much in our time together, whether driving with marissa and your mom and listening as they rattle on about all the stuff in preparing for you and I would try to play it off as if I knew anything at all of what they talked about ALL the way to chicago, or watching you grow, or all the knowledge your mom gained preparing for you, everything changed the moment you came. You are our baby. And all our babies will always hear the tales of you and how much we loved you.

When asked what your impact was, the answer is simple. You, you are the result. With your tiny little kicking legs you’ve kicked some major ass in this broken world (and I do mean that in a good way ). I don’t believe that it was ever meant to be this way, but that doesn’t mean that good and wonderful things haven’t come from it. I already know that you are an amazing girl and I am so excited to meet you.

This was my song for you the day I heard the news that you were lil Stevie: Colbie Colliet “Oh Capri” (but I like to change it to “oh stevie!) –right as I read the message from your mom this song began playing, no joke that same exact moment. Your mom did such an amazing job as you grew inside. And you, just as the song sings, you came out so beautifully.

"Oh Capri" lyrics:

She’s got a baby inside
And holds her belly tight
All through the night
Just so she knows
She’s sleeping so
Safely to keep
Her growing
And oh when she'll open her eyes
There'll be no surprise
That she'll grow to be
So beautifully
Just like her mother
That’s carrying
Oh Capri
She’s beauty
Baby inside she’s loving
Oh Capri
She’s beauty
There is and angel growin’ peacefully
Oh Capri
Sweet baby
And things will be hard at times
But I've learned to try
Just listening
Patiently, oh Capri
Sweet baby
Oh Capri
She’s beauty
Baby inside she’s loving
Oh Capri
Your beauty
Just like your mother
That’s carrying...Oh Capri

How wonderful to have friends who love her. That celebrate the baby she was, not just the one who isn't.
