3 Months – Spring has sprung

It’s March 20, the first official day of spring and 3 months since Alexander’s passing.  I’m looking around the family room at Alexander’s photos and his face is so full of promise.  

I wasn’t sure if I could visit Alexander’s grave today.  I thought it would be too hard for me.  In the end, Dan and I visited together.  The groundskeepers had put out more grass seed on Alexander’s grave and new patches of grass were sprouting.  I had already shed plenty of tears at home as I was sitting in the family room looking at Alexander’s photos and didn’t shed any at his graveside.

It’s still so hard to comprehend what’s happened.  I just wish I could hold my baby and hear him say mommy.
