1 year ago....

My Dearest Little Alexandra,
1 year ago - you changed my life. Maybe I was taking things for granted, maybe I wasn't loving the way I could, I'm not sure, but after losing you - things have been so different. I have been trying to be a better person (doesn't always happen) but I think of you looking down at me from heaven and I want you to be proud of me. Still believing I'm teaching you right and wrong. I don't know, it sounds kind of silly but I still think this way.
I will post pictures later as I haven't really collected myself.
We had the family over yesterday which was really nice. Everyone brought an ornament for your tree outside - we all went out and placed them on your tree. It was peaceful. You truly are loved and missed.
Today, Daddy, Tommy & I pretty much just hung out. Having some good family time. Please visit us soon - we miss you and need to feel you close by. You will always be part of this family, so don't stay away too long.
You are loved & missed everyday Peanut!
Hugs & Kisses!
Love, Mommy! xoxoxo

Almost a year ago

My little peanut,
I can't even put into words what I'm feeling right now. I'm crying all the time, missing you so much, feels like it just happened. O thought I was doing pretty good, but I seem to be falling apart. Don't know how I'm going to put on the brave face all day tomorrow with the family over. I know they will understand if I break down, but I'm trying to be strong.
I will make sure to post the cards I had made up for you. I also got everyone coming a little pin that has a pink ribbon and little baby footprints. I wrapped all the knives and forks up in pink napkins being held together by little dollies. I made pink cupcakes and got you some balloons. i just want you to know that you are not forgotten - I could NEVER do that, we all miss you so very much and we LOVE YOU!!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come for a visit - they bring me strength and peace and I seem to be missing that a lot lately.
You are loved and missed everyday my little one!
Hugs & Kisses!
Love, Mommy! xoxoxo

A year ago

My Little Peanut,
I have been thinking about you so much lately. I keep remembering what I was doing last year - Christmas shopping, wrapping your little Christmas present for your stocking, finding the prefect little toys, clothes, soothers for you.
It was so hard to go back and have to unwrap the gifts you never got to open.
I cry all the time now - at home, at work, in the shower, in bed, in my dreams.
Your 1 year is fast approaching and I feel like I'm falling apart.
Please come to visit me soon - I miss you so much.
You are loved & missed every single day my love.
Hugs & Kisses xoxoxo
Love, Mommy!
