I do okay now with babies. I see them and smile, I hold them, talk to them. But the one thing that still gets to me to this day is a newborn baby crying. I was in Target today and there was a real little one there who was wailing away. It got to me, I wanted to get as far away from that baby crying as I could. But that is the one thing Scott never did. I never heard him cry. I got to hold him, change his diaper, even try to feed him. But he stayed silent his entire short little life.
Hugs! I still cant do baby showers :( Many hugs!
There is a woman in my office who has twin nephews. They are not quite two yet. She will insist on showing me the videos. I wonder if those triggers will ever fade. Hugs.
I understand this feeling Nicole. I know that in grief we seem to go thru phases. First for me it was newborns then it was toddlers and now it's kindergartners. There are always triggers. I was recently on an airplane where there was a three month old crying the entire time. It was pure torture for me and Jacoby has been gone for five years. I get it!!! HUGS TO YOU!!! Lots of HUGS!
