Kinda Freaky Realization

Humble Readers, something hit me last night...

Those of you who have been walking this road with me for a while may recall the baby dream that I had just before we lost our second angel-baby, Olivia Noelle.  For those who are newer co-journey-ers with me, the basics are:

I dreamed that we were at the little grocery store across the back lane from our building, introducing our newborn little girl to all the cashier ladies.  Somehow during the dream we managed to 'misplace' or lose our new little girl.  I was frantic.  I was racing all over the store, looking for her everywhere, but I just couldn't find her.  In the dream, I was heartbroken, sobbing and bawling over our misplaced baby.  But then my Beloved walked up to me, carrying a baby, but it was a different baby.  He said to me, 'I know we lost our little girl, but here's another that can be ours'.  The little girl was dark haired, with a little round face, and beautiful blue eyes. 

Now, I'm not one to put a whole lot of stock in dreams.  I mean, they are what they are.  I honestly just thought it was my mind's way of dealing with the fears I had of having a second miscarraige.  And, after the miscarraige happened, in my heart I kind of clung to that dream as a hope that maybe there would be a baby in our lives some day. 

Fastforward just over two years...

A beautiful little dark haired little girl with a round face and stunning blue eyes. 

(For the record, I really didn't think that any child that came from my body would have dark hair, much less have hair of any sort, as all babies in my family are either blonde or bald.  I totally forgot to take my Beloved's family into account.)

Kinda freaky...


  1. Talk about a prophetic dream!!! That is warm and fuzzy to me, as opposed to freaky (but I believe in prophetic dreams and whatnot). Very, very nifty....

    Oh! Sorry I made you snort, LOL.

  2. That's pretty crazy. I had a dream about having twins before I got pregnant with the twins. And I knew they were a boy and a girl, too.

    I've totally given up on any of my children starting life with hair. Seriously, though. My twins are almost two and I've seen 6-month-olds with more hair!

  3. i had dreams of both my boys before i knew they were boys and what they looked like. the first was of a dark haired baby and the second of a strawberry both! I remember your dream, and I think the angels put them in our hearts and minds to put us at ease!

    btw my "I'm not a robot" characters are fathe - i usually spell it faith, but it amounts to the same thing! ;)

  4. Weird, but lovely how it all worked out! I'm dreaming a boy is on the way, we'll see if that's right! Funny that she has all that hair from dh's genes, sooo cute. Take care

  5. Oh Mrs. G. She is just so gorgeous and I love that your Beloved brought her to you in a dream. How lucky can we be? I am amazed every day and just how lucky we are.

  6. I completely believe in prophetic dreams but, with the history of them in my family, I kind of have to.
