A kind of quick one

A couple weeks ago, Lucas started sometimes giggling in his sleep. He did it one day and has done it a few times since, but not that often. Today he's been sleepy (and when not sleepy, HUNGRY, guessing this is a growth spurt), and this afternoon he giggled in his sleep, and just now he did it again. I know it's probably gas or some other lame biological reason and not really that he's laughing, but I like to think that Olivia is visiting him in his dreams and they are playing. And since I like that thought so much, I'm sticking with it.

I need to post a picture of him that I took yesterday in his sunglasses. They are too big and ridiculously cute and he was pretty tolerant of them.

Please send good thoughts and prayers to my blogger friend Rebecca who lost her daughter Lily a week from today, last year at almost 23 weeks. She is pregnant with her rainbow baby, a boy, and is in the hospital with severe pre-eclampsia at 31 weeks. There should be a rule that rainbow baby pregnancies are drama free, but alas, the universe is far from fair.

And, I hate pre-eclampsia. I always get so frustrated when I hear of someone new who has it, especially early and/or severe, because we should have had a cure for it so long ago. Women and babies shouldn't still be suffering from a disease that has been around since the ancient Greeks. Olivia and so many other and women shouldn't have died because of it. That people still get sick, that there is still no cure, that there is not even really a decent treatment other than delivery...just makes me so frustrated and sad and angry.

Anyway, it's way past my bedtime.

I know you and I both have a hard time believing in "signs" from our babies, but somehow there is no doubt in my mind that Lucas is dreaming about Olivia.
