Lilypie Angel and Memorial tickers

2 Jun 2013


After dinner, as usual, I went to put Wiggles to bed. We co-sleep, so I nurse and hug him until he falls asleep in our family bed and then sneak out.

Sometimes it takes almost an hour, sometimes just minutes. Today it was very fast.

Sneaking out of our bedroom, I was excited that I get to have dessert before 9pm. I went to the kitchen and made us some ice cream with fresh fruit. Then I went to check in on Wiggles, as I always do. When I opened the bedroom door, he was laying on his back, one arm up above his head, quiet, silent, almost pale, his mouth open... Mouth open the same way as Amelia's mouth was open... It was just hanging open every time we moved her.

Cold sweat rolled over my whole body, yet I knew he was alive - his chest was moving. I'm like an eagle and can spot that movement in the dark, from far away. Yet my brain just didn't believe it, his mouth was open and he looked so pale...

He just looked ...

I feel like I live in fear, all the time. I can't help it, and I'm afraid that if I do, something will happen.


  1. I'm so sorry. I imagine I will be the same if I'm lucky enough to have a rainbow baby. But you can only do the best you can. I wish I could give you a hug xx

  2. Thank you Lisa. Big hug to you too <3
