Inigo and I have been doing some gardening this morning. During a quiet moment, he put his arms around me and asked, “Are you OK mama?”.
I said, “Yes baby, of course. I have you and I have daddy, what else do I need?”.
“Archie and Aubrey”, he said.
Yesterday it was six months since my beautiful boy left us. I did nothing to commemorate the day, but I did think about him a lot. Six months, and my world has entirely changed. I’ve lost friends, gained friends, drunk a lot, gained a lot of weight, and cried a lot of tears.
I wonder what the next six months will bring.

lots more lovely words from Inigo!
cant wait to see you
I was just thinking of you and wondering how mothers day was going for you. I cant believe six months have gone by since Archie was born.
Inigo is such a sensitive sweetie.
Thinking of you yesterday and talking to Lauren about your adventure. I was thinking of you when we saw Babies, you spring into my mind a lot. I hope it was good to escape for a bit. Im sorry you feel sad, but its part of the journey, as you know. A bugger, eh? Sending you warmth and strength as you hurdle through. xxxx
Naaaaaw… your big boy is too gorgeous.
I seriously hope, and am quietly confident, that the next 6 months will be a little easier on your mama heart.
Also hope you had a lovely, if bittersweet, mothers day.
Different subject, and bound to infuriate you…but please go read this article, which contains a link to a horrible article written by a woman who it seems is too posh to breastfeed…http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=10724392
Only time will tell!
Inigo is a real sweetie.
