My oldest was 19 months old and started waving in the air one day during lunch. I asked him what he was doing. he said, " i am talking to the baby. " I asked him what baby was he talking to and he replied, " the baby in your tummy. "
"But, Mommy doesn't have a baby in her tummy, sweetheart. Just you. "
That night I began my morning, noon and night sickness...
Then while I was in labor my son stayed close to me at all times, as we were having a home birth. However, after a couple of days ( I have loooooong, posterior births ), my midwives were beginning to give up hope. But, ds told them " Don't worry, Grandma Bellamy says that the baby will come early this morning. "
We asked him what he was talking about as my grandmother had been dead 10 years before he was born. But, he pointed next to him and said " don't you see her? She's right there!"
This sent chills down everyone who was present... which was quite a roomfull. For me, however, it was a tremendous comfort as I had felt her presence so strongly during the birth of my oldest 27 months before that.
Sure enough, early that morning, at 5:52 am, our littlest angel appeared.
While trying to name him, we included our oldest in the process. Since we had chosen a name to honor my dh's side of the family, we had decided to choose a Celtic name to honor my side with this child. However, ds looked at us and said in a firm voice, " His name is Benjamin." We asked him what made him decide this, as it was not on our list and he had no friends by this name.
He looked at us and said, " The angels told me his name is Benjamin. Don't
you see? "
This is just a couple of examples of angels in our family. I have had them when I was younger and dh and my other ds has as well. I believe angels are with us everywhere. We just forget to how to see them...
