Hi sweet girl. I can't believe you should be turning two years old today. Talking, walking, playing dress up, getting into everything. So excited to help Mama take care of your new baby brother.
Although Elliot certainly has helped heal my heart in ways I never thought possible, there is still a Stevie-shaped piece of it missing. A piece that no other baby in the world will ever be able to fill. A piece that will always belong to you.
It's raining today, just like it was the weekend you were born. I remember driving to the hospital the day we found out you had died and thinking, "even the sky is crying today."
I just want you to know how loved you are. How much we miss you, every single day.
I've been reading the children's book Love You Forever to Elliot a lot lately. In the story, the mom sings this to her baby every night as she's rocking him to sleep:
"I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be."
I feel the same way about you, Stevie girl. As long as I'm living, my first baby you'll be.
All my love,
Makes the Missing Lighter
