We're admitting a little baby - Noah - born a week after our little Noah. I don't want to even look at him, but I have to. Why does this little one bother me more, just because he has his name? I have to set up his room, pick out blankets, diapers, everything they will need for him. All I can think is Noah, Noah, Noah.

If I'm going to work in pediatrics, I need to get over this. But right now, I just want to cry.

Special thanks to AlexAiden Mommy for my precious siggy

It's probably the name, and the close birthdates. Every time you hear or say the name you think about what you should have had. This first experience with a baby of the same name will be the hardest. Any time you come across a Noah again you'll have been through it before and survived it. Until then, just let yourself cry when you can.

Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

I'm sorry Amanda, it sounds very tough. I do believe it will get easier for you with time.
