Nine In Nine Out9:53 am
Florence would be nine months old today, somehow that feels significant, and according to the work of anthropologist Ashley Montagu certainly is, at least for a living baby.
Sometimes I catch myself thinking "Oh that would look so cute on Florence", when I see outfits made by other bloggers, or when I'm browsing patterns. It's only a second or two, and then I remember.
There are times when I still can't quite believe what happened.
There are also times when I hear stories of child neglect and abuse, and I wonder why? Why did my much loved baby die?
How has nine months gone by? How am I still here, still functioning?
There are those moments of clarity when I realise forever is forever.x
