random things that have nothing to do with anything

Marie did this on her blog (Becci also did this on her blog a while ago) and I told Marie I would do it over here. So, here are 10 things about me that start with L. It would be easier if she gave me a P, I could write a ton about preemies

1. Lunch. I go out to lunch everyday because I'm too lazy to make my own lunch.
2. Lazy. I can be a little lazy. I really should rest now; you know I am high risk. (isn't that a good reason??)
3. Little. My belly is not little.
4. Loss. All of you know about my loss. Caleb passed away April 24. He was my life, my strength, my baby.
5. Love. (sorry this is sappy) I have an awesome, supportive husband, who I Love!
6. Lucky. I am lucky to have the awesome, supportive husband, and we were lucky to get to know Caleb for 6 1/2 months. And we are lucky that we are getting to have another little boy in October.
7. Loser. I'm not a loser, but Heddda is (and Marie's a loser too for giving me L)! ;-)
8. Last. I'm the youngest of 4. I'm the last.
9. Large. My belly is large.
10. Lost. I'm lost without Caleb. He was my life for 6 1/2 months. Everyday I would go see him (except when I was sick or just too tired). I get home from work and I don't know what to do. I'm supposed to be with Caleb or getting ready to go visit Caleb.

I can't end my list like that.
I'll leave you with bonus word.
11. Laughter. Laughter really is the best medicine.

OOPS! I forgot an L. So, you get one more bonus letter!
12. Locke! Dah. My last name. And I've called our babies lockeness monsters until they get names.


If you want to play, email me and I will give you a letter.

Who knew the letter "l" could make you cry! It sounds like "l" was a good letter for you. and as for being the last...maybe mom and dad saved the best for last? nah...:)

Your belly is little and is not large. I sent you the pictures to prove it. It takes a loser to know a loser. ;) I can't wait to meet little man.

Great list!! I picked L because of Locke and so that it would be more of a challenge than P or Q.

No matter the letter, you would have made us laugh and cry at the same time.

You are awesome, oh great Diva Queen!

I like the list....
I also read your post on what to do/not do when someone close to you is grieving and it really hit home for me. I can't count the number of times people did/said something on the do not list. It seems like almost everyone did, especially putting a time limit on it. There is no time limit. I know you love Caleb so much and miss him. He was such a beautiful baby! I know for a fact he will always be in your heart...

Loved your L List!

I like your list. I've been trying to leave a comment about Caleb's pictures since we got back, but my computer and your blog were not cooperating - or I was too impatient. His pictures are great. It's fun to have pictures of all sides of a baby's personality.

Thanks for the window at the top that tells us how many weeks you are. Maybe now I won't have to ask you all the time.
