So hard to believe that an entire week has gone by since we last held Liam. Part of the disbelief is that it has gone by really fast – because we have had family here, because we had a funeral and reception to plan, and because we have had to find our way back into a life that we weren’t expecting again.
There are some things that have been good to return to, like cooking our own meals (with the supplemental help of some pre-prepared meals); but it’s been a lot of moments of serious emotion – mostly at some unexpected times. To say unexpected is a little strange, but when we were surrounded by amazing family and friends on Tuesday night, emotion was on a good upswing. Then the silence of the night settles in, and the unexpected moments loom large.
We have ventured out and about, with trips early in the week turning out to be more difficult than we thought, and we are starting to find a routine again at the house. Yet, it’s one that we know will change sooner than later, as both of us will have to go back to work before too long. We are really cherishing these moments together.
Minute by minute, hour by hour…now week by week.
