A Playdate with the CP's

Today Alessandra and I headed to the CP's 
to spend a little time with Renee and Danny Boy.  

We talked. 

We ate lunch.

The kiddos napped.

Renee took a ton of pictures with her awesome new camera.

We messed around on our blogs.

We ate ice cream.

We played with Toby.

The kiddos played.

We shared snuggles and cuddles all around.

Then, just like that, it was time to go.

I call Danny my bench mark boy.  That's because he is only a few weeks older than Pearce would have been.  It was so fun for me to see Alessandra and Danny play and imagine what it would have been like if Pearce was still here with us.  Alessandra would have loved her big brother.  They would have been so cute together, playing and vying for my attention.  It makes my heart ache that she won't get to experience playing with her brother but I'm so grateful for all the time she gets with her little friends, like our Danny Boy!

A special thank you to Renee for sharing all of these photos with me!

    Charmian...what a sweet post! I am enjoying your blogs so  much! Wish I were in Denver to see you and meet Alessandra in person! Love you!!! Only 2 1/2 more weeks for me...getting excited!!!!

  2. Charmian, I'm enjoying your blog, so glad your found me.  I wanted you to know that a long time ago I watched the video you posted about Pearce on facebook.  I just cried and my heart broke for you.  I know you will always think of him.  Your little girl is just precious! 

  3. Congratulations on your little one.  Are you having a little boy or a little girl?  I hope you enjoy every moment of motherhood - even the sleepless nights and the spilled tears - because you have been blessed with a little life!  

    Welcome to Stone of Joy!


  4. Thank you so much Jamie!  I'm so glad I found your blog too.  Your little boy is so adorable.  

    It is amazing how frequently I still think of Pearce and honestly I hope I never think of him any less.   He was our angel baby and he blessed our lives so much in the short time we had him with us.


  5. I have the most beautiful wife and daughter.  Love you guys and miss you bunches!

  6. Charm, Alessandra is just so gorgeous! I always write that, but I can't help it. She just takes my breath away! I can't wait to see you guys! Also I got to share a little of Pearce's story with somebody. It was a totally different perspective for them, I'll tell you more when I see you! Love love love.

  7. I can't wait to hear it - check FB I sent you a message there.  :o)

  8. We miss you too!  
    More than you will ever know!  
    Hugs and Love.
