When you think of your baby now, how do you see him/her? (as a baby or the age they would be now)









I go back and fourth, sometimes I see her still has a small baby, but most of the time I think of her as the age she would be now...I have a picture in my head about how she would of looked like...I pictured her in my mind when I was still pregnant with her, and that's something I never did with my other children.

I almost always picture him as a baby. Sometimes I think about what he would be like at the age he is now but then I think about the chromosomal abnormality that he had and that because of that he probably wouldn't be alive anymore and if he was alive, he would most likely have developmental disabilities and some physical abnormalities. So, I like to remember him as he was born because he looked perfect then.

i have always pictured her as a small child of 2-3 years old - never an infant and never older - always with her brown hair back in pig tails - playing with a doll - never fails.

I picture Ella with light brown hair and big blue eyes and a big smile on her face...That's how I pictured she would look while I was pregnant with her...She was such a quiet calm baby during my pregnancy, so I think she would of been sweet, calm and loving....This baby i'm pregnant with seems to be pretty calm like her (Not a lot of movement during ultrasound, and HR is quiet), it reminds me a lot of her.

I just had Carter 6 weeks ago. So I picture him in heaven as a chubby baby, not the little guy that I got to hold. I see him in heaven with his great grandma, and when it's my turn to be with him someday, she'll hand him to me, and my DH and will get to watch him grow up.

When I picture them in my head, they are always little babies. When I think about the loss of them, I picture then as the age they should be.

I picture Cora the age she would be. She had gorgeous red curls, and I'm sure she would have had green eyes. It helps that my best friend has a little redheaded girl 2 months younger than Cora would be, so I get to see what she would be doing.

I picture Trace as a baby. I always like to think that when I go to heaven that I will get to do everything that I missed out with him then. <3

Usually as a baby. Sometimes I think about what he would look/be like at the age he would be now. He was the only one born with golden blonde wavy/curly hair (my others were born with straight dark brown hair that later grew in curly.) He was such a pretty baby.

Everytime I see Emma, I always gonna see Grace. They were identical twins. I know they should have some differences, specially in personality. When they born they were exactly the same. We could say who was who. So I always know how Grace is going to look like!!!! I don't know yet if this is a good thing or a bad thing!

I always picture Makenzie as a baby, never mind we are coming up on 14 years next month. I would like to think she couldn't grow up without her momma there with her.

New here...

I always think of my girls as newborns. I only think of them the age they should be on their birthdays, Mother's day, etc. or when I see a little girl/s the age they should be.
