Capture Your Grief, Day 12: Scents

I read once that a mother can identify her baby's clothes from other baby's clothes by smell alone.  I completely believe this.  Grace had a smell all her own, I have never smelled anything like her before and I don't think I ever will again.  She smelled like home and love and perfect new life.  It was intoxicating and I kept smelling her and kissing her trying to imprint those smell and touch memories into the deepest part of my brain.  I hope that Heaven smells like her.

Today is 8 months without her... it feels like yesterday I held her and smelled her.  Mommy loves you darling.
