Happy Easter Calvin Phoenix, Rainbow Baby, and Gaelen Evangeline

Happy Easter Calvin, Rainbow, and Gaelen from Grandma YolyIt’s still hard to believe that I haven’t been able to celebrate Easter on earth with any of my children. We lost both Calvin and Gaelen during Lent and Rainbow just before Christmas. It’s Calvin’s 3rd Easter, Rainbow’s 2nd, and Gaelen’s 1st.

My mother-in-law put these Easter goodies together for my three babies. The purple one is for Rainbow; the yellow one is Gaelen’s; and Calvin’s is the blue one. They have little bunny marshmallows wrapped in cellophane and each also has a gummy candy. The tags say, “Happy Easter Jesus” and have the babies’ names on them. Aren’t these just sweet?

Today also happens to be one month since Gaelen’s Heaven Day and Nathalia’s Birthday, so if you could, please send some love, prayers, and kisses to my girl in heaven and to my SIL’s girl in her arms.

Also, since I hadn’t updated on Gaelen for a while, I did want to share the results of her pathology report. (Did you catch that, yet?) Gaelen’s genetic testing came back normal, and she is our second baby girl. You may have figured that out if you visited the site (I know some of you read via subscriptions/feeds) or picked up on the title of this post. Of course it was difficult to have to receive this news, and tears did follow, but as a friend put it, finding out that she was a girl “fills out the memory more.” It feels right knowing Gaelen is a girl, especially with all of the hearts she’s been sending me, but that’s for another post ā™„.

My sweet babies, I hope you are enjoying the Easter celebration in heaven. I miss you and love you so much. I so wish Mommy and Daddy could see you in springtime outfits and egg-hunting with your cousins. One day, my sweet baby bunnies.

  1. How does it feel to be the Grandma of my 3 Angel Babies? I feel very blessed and comforted by the fact that they are basking in heaven amidst other Angels and being nurtured by God himself.
    Do I miss them? With every breath I take.
    I sense their presence everywhere I go. Because of this, I feel strength ever step of the way in any direction life leads me to.
    -Grandma Yoly

  2. Happy Easter in Heaven, babies! I love the gifts their grandma put together. I will be mailing your tags this week. Thinking abot you. xoxo
