An Update

I know I haven't said much lately. I should, but time's just gotten away from me. It's hard to believe it's almost 2013. This month has been busy and full of distraction, but when things slow down each day, I still cry for my daughter.

Daddy's Perspective

I was at work when Virginia text me that she was having labor pains. That moment I got excited, but Virginia told me not to get too excited yet. I mind was on her the entire day, and I started making plans in my head of how I was going to hurry home and get her to the hospital. At about 4 pm, Virginia text me that I needed to get home so we could get ready to head to the hospital. I told my boss I needed to go, and he let me off a few minutes early. I logged out of my computer, but learned later I’d forgotten to log out of the phone system. I accidentally left my phone on the “back to desk” setting. Oops.

Missing Eden

We miss Eden so much... I can't believe that she would have already been 2 weeks old  tomorrow. Time goes by so fast, and already details from her birth and short time with us are getting fuzzy. I cry daily, more so at night than during the day. I guess I keep busy enough during the day to stay distracted, but things slow down in the evening and my mind is filled with thoughts and memories of our little girl.

Eden's Memorial

Saturday we opened up our home to friends and family that were able to come and celebrate Eden's life with us. My dad made a really beautiful picture video that we played all day long on the television, and people filled our living room and kitchen. We told people anytime after 10, and most of everyone who came arrived just after 10 - at one point we had over 30 people in the house at once!
