Not 3. This is my 4th child.

I'm getting tired of people congratulating me on baby #3.  I have baby #3.  His name is Patrick, and he's currently trying to climb on my back.  I adore him.

Erin (who is telling me she's hungry and not understanding when I'm telling her it has to cook) is baby #2.

Cora was, is, and always will be my first baby.  Just because I didn't get to take her home, and or take all the pictures of her I have of her siblings, or having her family pictures, doesn't mean she's not my child.

In ways, she's more my child that Skittles is right now.

But I can't forget her.  I have to acknowledge her.  She's my firstborn, always and forever.

And I miss her so much.


  1. Yes, you are on baby #4 not #3. I have noticed a lot of BLM who post about a rainbow have people who comment about it and forget their angel that looks above when counting out their children. I'm so sorry this happened to you my friend. *hugs*

  2. I so missed the pregnancy announcement. SO happy for you. I understand the counting. I am on baby 5. I have gone almost full term with 4 previous children. Sorry to have others forget to count her.
