‘I would be getting the hang of being a mom of two. My milk would be regulating to your schedule. Your sister would be asking questions about your belly button and you would have peed on her at least once by now.
Kara continued, ‘Daddy would be sending texts to his football buddies about how our giant baby boy could probably already out-lift them.
‘We would be laughing that you never fit into newborn diapers, not even for one day. I’d be exhausted, leaking, and happy.’

‘Instead… we’re missing you.’ she wrote, concluding her note.
‘To all my fellow “instead” mamas…. thank you for reminding me that we’re not alone, and that we can survive this. He didn’t, but we have to. And we will.’
The heartbreaking image comes after Kara shared a photo of McCoy’s urn after the couple donated his organs and tissues.
‘Welcome home, baby boy’ Kara wrote in the caption, along with a blue heart emoji.

The daughter of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Jeana Keough shared the tragic news earlier this month that she had lost her son during a difficult labor.
‘On April 6th, our son McCoy Casey Bosworth was born at 3:10am. Weighing in at 11 pounds and 4 ounces and spanning 21 inches, McCoy surprised us all with his size and strength (and overall perfection).
‘During the course of his birth, he experienced shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord.’
Shoulder dystocia is a birth injury that happens when one or both of a baby’s shoulders get stuck inside the mother’s pelvis during labor. In the majority of cases the baby is born safely.
Kara continued her post, ‘He joined our Heavenly Father and will live forever in the hearts of his loving parents, his adoring sister, and those that received his life-saving gifts.

‘I wrote this for the organ/tissue procurement team to read out in his honor: ‘Tonight, we join together to honor this little savior’s gifts of life. Through him, may others find new hope and profound healing… and may he live again through them. May his legacy shine in the form of lifetimes aplenty – lives filled with laughter, compassion, energy, love, and most of all gratitude. May it be said that McCoy Casey Bosworth left this world in a better place, for a better place…. that he made an impact… that he was an answered prayer… that he was a hero.’
Kara then wrote a bible passage from John 16:20 and ended her message with ‘Until we see you again… We love you, McCoy.’
The following day, Kara’s heartbroken brother Shane shared a photo of McCoy’s nursery which was decorated beautifully, ready for his arrival.

Kara and Kyle are parents to daughter Decker Kate, four, and were overjoyed to be adding to their family.
Several weeks ago Kara was surprised by some of her closest friends, including US soccer star Alex Morgan, with a fun baby shower.
Sharing photos to Instagram Kara said of the bash: ‘Unbeknownst to me, my friends found a way to give me exactly what I wanted: a night with people I love, in my pajamas, without make up, with all my favorite things they make to eat, the Mother Load of Cheeseboards, and a ‘BIRTH DAY CAKE.’ I’ve never laughed so hard or felt so loved and heard,’
In October 25, Kara revealed the happy news that she was expecting her second child, writing on her The Pushover Project blog that she got pregnant during a family vacation to Europe.
‘THE VERDICT IS IN: My new gut is not a rosé FUPA from France; it’s not a Swiss cheese fart from Switzerland, or a pasta clot from Italy,’ she wrote.
Kara revealed in October that she was expecting her second child: ‘Our little Eurotrip left our hearts, our bellies, AND my uterus quite full.’
‘As it turns out, our little Eurotrip left our hearts, our bellies, AND my uterus quite full.’
‘I intentionally waited for the right time to bring you into our family for a reason, I just had no idea my reason would be this freaking excited. It’s really damn cool,’
‘We love you like crazy already, baby. April 2nd, 2020 can’t come soon enough.’
Kara also wrote about Decker’s excitement to have a sibling on the way.
‘She has your crib made up with a soft blanket and her favorite bunny ‘Bun-Bun.’ She’s personally tested every single one of her old pacifiers to make sure they’ve met all quality control standards for your arrival,’ she explained.
‘She’s pushing the stroller around the house in preparation for her role as your best friend in the entire universe. She has graciously offered to change your diapers and give you baths and she’s very excited to find out if “Jesus picked a baby brother or a baby sister for us,”.
