Ten Month Blog Hop

Today is ten months since Finley was born. It has been a relatively normal day, and yet I can’t help but wonder what life would be like if Finley were here. I shared my musings on a forum today, and a fellow loss mama replied with “I think he would be a gorgeous chubby mini-Steve hon.” I reckon she’s right. I wonder how much he would like like his daddy, I wonder if he would have started to look more like me. I wonder what colour his eyes would have ended up, and if he’d be standing/walking yet. Would he be saying any words?
I don’t have a lot to say today, I feel quite numb actually. It’s strange how I alternate between feeling numb and feeling completely inconsolable. Perhaps the numbness is my body’s way of giving my mind a break from the overwhelming grief. Or perhaps I’ve been focusing so much on the big move today that it’s given me something else to focus on.

Dear Finley

  7. Hi Lisa,

    I am a new blogging mommy who experienced loss and grief from stillbirth of my daughter at 40 weeks pregnant. I blog at http://www.stillbornandstillbreathing.com. I would like to join your link up, but am curious as to if it is still open? I would love to grab a button for Finley’s Blog Hop and post it on my page, but I can’t figure out how to link up. Can you help me.

    P.S. Finley’s stories brough tears to my eyes. I am so sorry for your loss.
