**Trigger Warning – Baby Loss** To my perfect little girl, One less stocking, one less pile of presents, one less Christmas jumper to buy. These are the sorts of things that really make me miss you at Christmas. I know we weren’t lucky enough to ever get a Christmas with you but I had planned them. Oh, had I planned them. My twin girls in Christmas pudding outfits or pretty party dresses.
