Living my new normal

writing in the baby book

  • I'm sure that seeing that 3rd birthday page was a huge trigger for you.  I'm glad to hear that you were able to watch and actually somewhat enjoy watching some of the footage of Colin's 3rd birthday.  Sounds like it was fate that your brother was filming :)



  • Oh Nicole, how hard it must be to not only mourn the loss of Scott, but to also try to keep normalcy for Colin in what is not a normal situation at all. When you saw the 3rd birthday page, that must have been so hard. :(

    I am thankful that you were able to laugh at the video of his party, I am glad that your brother can make you laugh no matter the situation. We all need humor, even in unthinkable times.

    Huge hugs,


  • Nicole,

    I can't imagine how hard that must have been. Alexia doesn't have a baby book. Well she has one but there is literally nothing in it. I always have all of these wonderful intentions of starting it but It's just hard. She was only 8 months old when we had her sister and I just put it off too long. Those early photos of her sleeping on my pregnant belly or cuddling me in bed when I didn't want to get up are not memories I want to remember sometimes.

    Sending you hugs.
