Over The Month Mark...

Well, last Friday would have been Isabel's month birthday. We celebrated it with snow. Every important day for Isabel so far has snow involved. It snowed when she passed and was born, it snowed on the day of her funeral, and again on her month birthday. Mark and I like to think that Isabel makes it snow so that we remember her. In a lot of ways, Isabel is like a snowflake. She is unique, like a snowflake. She came and was gone quickly, like a snowflake. And she was so beautiful, just like a big snowflake. We miss her so much. I don't think anything can compare to the pain a parent feels when they miss their child. It is like a peice of yourself is gone. I can't stop thinking about how I could have an almost 6 week old baby. But, instead, I am watching the mountains, knowing that Isabel is covering them with snow.

Jillybean, thanks for keeping us updated with how you are doing. I've been thinking about you and praying for you and hoping you were doing okay. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

Wow--while avoiding my homework I found your blog via facebook, and I'm really glad I did. I never even knew you two were expecting. You're posts about Isabel are beautiful--especially the pictures. (By the way, Isabel is the spanish variant of my name, and Dec 22 is my birthday--I'll probably think about her every year on my birthday now)
Thanks for sharing your stories!
