One day...

One day you're going to look at the beautiful snow globe on your dresser and be able to read the name inscribed on it. And you'll ask.

"Who's Caleb, mommy?"

And I will have to find a way to tell you about the baby that came before you, the brother you should have known, and why I'm sad sometimes.  It will be hard and sad and it's a conversation no one should ever have to experience.

I could hide it from you, but he's a part of our family and a big part of who I am today. And perhaps in knowing his story, you'll know how even more special you are to us.

Two years ago today, your big (though very little) brother was born, and I had no idea where my life would go from there. Today I have you, my beautiful, sweet little girl, but two years ago I had another baby, a beautiful, sweet little boy, who will always be with us.
