14 Pictures

How is it that someone who has changed my life forever left behind so little? I am sitting here with Caleb's photo album, and his 14 pictures (thought there was a whole roll of film taken? so where are the REST?). 14. That's all. What a waste.

Do you know what happened to them? Were they originally developed or was the roll not finished off? As if you haven't lost enough, but to lose such precious, irreplacable pictures... that's not fair:( Like any of it was anyway....

I don't remember what happened to the pics, but I think they were all there when we got them developed. That was the day of the funeral, so things were kind of hectic. I know maybe 2 or 3 pics were out of focus so I didn't put them in the album. Just didn't realize how little we are left with until you start to sort through it.

What are you doing up so late anyway??

I just thought I would have a look at Caleb with you. I know I went to his site just after my own loss and it made a difference. But now I kind of know his mum and it is so different to see such a perfect little boy and know that he never got any further than that moment in life but that he still managed to make such a difference every day after that photo was taken.

I'm not sure what my point is here Julie, except that you amaze me with your strength and I just felt like I had to tell you how beautiful your boy is. And 14 pictures could never be enough. 14000 could never be enough.

Hey crossposting! I was watching Fahrenheit 9-11 and eating hot apple pie:)

The amazing contrast that struck me the other day was that I have a scrapbook in progress for Sam...I'm actually at his first birthday now and he's three years old. But for Alex I have three pictures and it would take me no time at all to scrapbook them...if I could do it without crying all over them. So for exactly opposite reasons, my boys aren't going to have their scrapbooks done. I'm a complete scrap failure.

I hope you find your missing pictures.
