I'm feeling a lot better today so maybe it is as good a time as any to post more information about Calliope. I'm getting to where I can think of her and smile instead of crying. She was perfect and beautiful in every way. She was born at 40 wks 5 days, weighed 7 lbs 8 oz, had big feet and the beginnings of my husband's nose (some people say you can't tell at birth but she definitely took after her dad). She was simply lovely and I wanted to hold her forever. The nurses were wonderful and took so many photos for us to keep. They even had a handmade blanket for her. I put her in a little pair of knit shorties I had made for her. Of course, they were pants on her! I had made a matching hat but I just couldn't bear to hide all that hair so I kept it off for the pictures. I will love you and miss you forever, sweetie. Calliope
Thank you for letting me know about the Share boards, proudhsmommy. I remember reading your posts. I wanted to say that I posted Calliope's picture because I thought your Ruby's photos at her memorial service were beautiful. Thank you so much.
