Her angel: Kara Keough Bosworth continued to mourn her son McCoy on Tuesday as she marked 6 months since he died after a traumatic birth in April
She wrote, 'Six months ago, I laid my eyes on you for the first time. I turned your big body around then looked at Daddy with a mixture of shock and pride and said, "It’s a boy." Three hours later, I limped into the NICU to start what would be my first and last days of kissing you.
'Somehow, I kissed you a lifetime's worth of kisses in six days. All without one kiss back. I still think about what it felt like to kiss you, and that I never got kissed back.
'It all still makes my throat ache like I'm being choked. I hate that the thought of kissing you creates this painful and involuntary spasm. I'd much rather be thinking of that involuntary happiness spasm that would overtake your body as a 6-month-old.
Kara went on to describe her longing to see the happy little jolts her baby would make when kissing him.
She also imagined how her days would look with her six-month-old reaching new developmental milestones.
'Would we be dropping a nap, hearing you laugh, starting solids? Would all my shirts have drool pools on them? Would nursing you prove to be more of an Olympic effort around this time?
Kara's heartbreaking post talked about how much she kissed her little boy in the NICU and how she wishes he could kiss her back. She also talked about all the little milestones he'd be reaching on his 6-month birthday
