First dinner out

Today we went out to dinner for the first time since Eve was born.  Granted it was a restaurant attached to a grocery store, but it still counts.  I made the comment to Jenny that I've waited so long to take one of our babies out to dinner.  Eve was sitting on the same side of the table as Jenny and she was being a saint, sleeping away.  There was an empty chair next to me which is where Lila would have been sitting.  I knew this was coming but sometimes its hard not to play the "what if" games. The empty seat in these moments makes it oh so obvious.  Eve brings us so much joy each and every day and that smile she flashes is the greatest form of grief therapy.  But this is our reality.  There is and will always be one empty seat at our dinner table. - Mike
