Should've...Would've... but Isn't.

She would have been two months old on the 26th. I would have been posting pictures on Facebook, showing the world how much she’s grown and how quickly she was catching up. She should have had the chance to grow up.

We should be breastfeeding rockstars, getting our routine down and settling in at home. She should be keeping us up at night and cuddling on our chests. She would have loved her bassinet, her blankets, and her stuffed animals. She would have looked so cute in her cloth diapers.

She should be the reason her Daddy can’t leave the house. She would be the reason he comes home early. She should be the sun my world revolves around.

She should be here.

Should. Would. The words that color my world.


  1. Everytime I hear the song "Blessings" I well up and think of you.

  2. This makes me so sad Katie. You are in my prayers today.
