So, we bought a house and are moving. Why does it break my heart so much to put Cora's things from her shelf into a box? I mean, everything *else* is going into a box!!

I think it's mostly because I have no idea where I'm going to hang the shelf in our house. I'm contemplating putting it in my nursery, so Cora can watch over her baby sister. But I really do love having it out in the living areas so that I see it frequently...

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

You bought a house?! Congratulations!
I kind of understand where you're coming from. We had most of Lucy's things in a rubbermaid in our bedroom, and one day DH took it to the basement. I was not okay with that at all. I brought it back up to our bedroom!

((HUGS))) There are a lot of things recently that are changing for me as well, and they are all so hard when it comes to Matthew. We're here and I know you will make the right decision for all of Cora's belongings. She is watching over you all no matter where her shelf is!

Annalise is hoping to be a big sister on June 28, 2014. Forever missing her big brother, Matthew, stillborn on July 1, 2010.

We are in the process of moving as well. Before I had Noah's things at my parent's house. As I was packing up, I hated putting it all in a box. I cried when I placed his urn in there. The first thing I unpacked was that box. But I don't have anywhere to put it. I don't want it all in the living room, I'm afraid it might look like a shrine. But I don't want to hide it in our bedroom either. I'm trying to find the right balance between the two rooms I guess. It's so frustrating.

One part of me doesn't want to make other's uncomfortable by it being out in the open, and the other part of me wants to scream, I DON'T CARE IF IT MAKES YOU UNEASY, THAT'S MY BABY! I'm also so scared that Evann (DSD) will knock something over. I don't know how I would react if she broke something. I love her, dearly. But when it comes to Noah, all of a sudden it's like it's very clear she's not mine.

I hope you find a good place for Cora's shelf. She deserves it, and so do you.

Special thanks to AlexAiden Mommy for my precious siggy
