We lost one of our LA Moms Blog babies. Today I am attending Maddie's funeral. Wearing purple, her favorite color. I don't even know what to type here. I met Maddie for the first time about three weeks ago. I was totally smitten with her. Such a cutie pie! She was crashed out when I arrived and I couldn't take my eyes off her. The best eyebrows I've ever seen on a baby! She lit up the room when she woke up. I told her mom, Heather, that we needed to get Maddie and Lulu together for a playdate--they are so close in age! Yes, yes, she agreed. I'm heartbroken. I can't believe I'm heading to her funeral. I'm not even able to breathe normally. My head is spinning. I will be there to throw whatever support I can at everyone who needs it and to say goodbye to that little cutie pie.
