If you are coming from Building Heavenly Bridges (BHB), WELCOME and if you are finding me for the first time and looking for support after a loss, then please check me out at my grief/loss blog!

This blog is a series of anecdotes from our life after losing our first child, a stillborn daughter, then going on to birth the two other lights of our lives!

Bear is 6: serious, organized, my cruise director and my time keeper.

The Comedian is 4: She is pure comedy always doing something unintentionaly funny that I attempt to put into words.

Enjoy our stories, conversations, and delights as we embrace the lives of our second and third daughters without ever negating our first.

Show and Tell: The Resolution of Uncertainty (living children pictured)

Although Bear is clearly the mirror image of me, Comedian carries my love-of-everything-baby gene. She even insisted in taking her to the resturant on Thanksgiving!

I carried a baby doll everywhere with me for the first decade of my life. And not just any baby doll, THAT baby doll she's holding! Elizabeth has been re-introduced to the next generation of the family and she isn't too much worse for the storage wear!

Hence, my mild shock last July when Comedian first met her newest cousin at the hospital and recoiled a bit.

But, after his tiny-babyness had worn off and he became even the slightest bit interactive she began to dote on him. That's my girl. I always knew you would!

This Monday he came to stay with us for a couple hours. He is four months old. She was so at ease with him, he may easily have been baby-doll Elizabeth.

And he, equally loved in the arms of his cousin! Making memories with him is so much fun! What is the rest of the class showing and telling?

Great pictures! And, it's so awesome that Comedian has (and clearly loves) the very same doll you toted as a child. That's really special! Thanks for sharing!

What sweet moments...both passing on your doll to your daughter and her caring for her cousin.

Martha said...

What a beautiful batch of cousins! What a wonderful smile your new nephew has and so happy for your girls to have this experience.

Oh, he's a cutie and those pictures are darling!

It's great you were able to pass on your baby doll. It looks really good too, mine were pretty rough from my tomboy ways.

Sadly, none of my dolls made it through. They all died from exposure, due to the fact that I was unable to leave a doll clothed. How wonderful that your little one loves the same doll you did!

And that baby is adorable!

AYKM is cracking me up (as she often does).

The Comedian is looking so grown up these days. Love the hairstyle.

It is so awesome that Comedian got your doll-from-childhood to play with! I played with a baby doll my aunt had given me. It was her daughters'. Alas, that doll is not with me anymore coz, my mother gave it away to an acquaintance, when we grew up.

And I love how well the baby boy and Comedian gelled together! Wowwie!

P.S. Do Bear and Comedian read your blog posts?

How adorable! Love the smiling picture.

Lynn said...

Your girls never cease to amaze me! That is too precious :) So glad the Commedian came around to adoring her cute little cousin!

How awesome that your children are able to love the same doll you did. Sometimes it just takes a while for a doting one to get comfortable and assess the situation before jumping right in and loving babies.

Good one on Show and Tell: The Resolution of Uncertainty (living children pictured) - it helps a lot!

We clearly share similar parenting experiences and views.
I've been reading one that I'm hooked on - http://todayscliche.com/.
I have a feeling you'd get a lot out of it.

Incredible job on your blog; keep it up.
