My dearest Bailey,
Today was supposed to be your due date, and today mommy isn't doing very good. I'm so sad baby girl. I feel so cheated of the life I was supposed to have with you.
From the moment we found out we were expecting you, we dreamt of this day. We anticipated welcoming you into our little family, bringing you home, and watching you grow. We couldn't wait for that time to come. But, when you arrived 17 weeks too soon, on April 30, I since have dreaded this day. I knew it was going to be tough. I knew it was going to be hard. And I knew we could only spend it "with" you and for you. So, Daddy and I took the day off of work. It's your day baby girl, and even though we aren't doing any of the things we planned or hoped for, it's still your day.
So, today, we are doing things in remembrance of you. We are going to go to your resting place and putting out new flowers. We got some pink ones and some purple ones, and we even got a pink butterfly and a purple butterfly to put out there too. I know you'll love them.
We are taking your fur-sibling (Desmond) with us, and we are going to Sulphur to have a picnic at the park, and we are also going to walk the trails. The weather is perfect and it's something we will never get to do with you, so it's something we are going to do in remembrance of you.
Your Daddy surprised me with pink cupcakes last night, just in your honor today. They have cream cheese in them, and pink icing. They are supposed to be delicious. I cried, because I didn't expect him to do something like that. He planned that just for you!
Tonight, when we get home, we will light a candle in your honor. It will be to remember you and all of your angel friends.
Baby girl, you are so loved and so missed by many. Mommy and Daddy think of you daily, and we wish everyday that you were here with us.
Loving You and Missing You always,
