Something’s Not Right

Lily Allen wrote this song for her son that was stillborn and David and I feel like it describes what we’re both feeling and have felt since Brielle’s loss. David said this part reminds him of me while I held Brielle in the hospital. I’d never let her go or stop touching her, I didn’t want her to be alone.

“We had forever
We never got it together
I waited for you
For you I made it better
They kept telling me that it was unlikely
All I had to do was keep you beside me”

Take it On the Run

I was playing Brielle’s playlist last night and just hanging out on the couch (I do a lot of that these days). Take It on the Run by REO Speedwagon came on and Brielle went crazy with excitement. She started dancing with her whole body! I was kicked and punched in every direction. I had a good laugh and asked her if she was excited for some REO. She’s such a sweet happy girl.
