Give-Away Reminder

Just a reminder that I am doing a give-away to mark Gracie's birthday.  I will be giving a gift certificate to The Midnight Orange.  Her sculptures are simply amazing.  I will randomly pick a winner some time between August 1st and August 8th.  So far, only 8 ladies have 'entered'.  To enter the give-away, leave a comment here or on this post and tell my your little one's name and birthday...and also one thing that you will always remember about your little one and hold close in your heart.

I am also fielding questions to mark my approach to 100 posts.  Feel free to email me or leave questions of any kind here in the comment section or in the comment section of this post

How did I miss a contest post? ;)

You know Lily, her birthday is
August 3, 2008. I remember how she had my hubby's feet :) I loved how they were long and skinny and not fat and wide like mine...silly thought but it makes me smile...

Oh I missed this too! I know you also know of my Madelyn, and her birthday is 8/28/09. I can't believe how close it is. I'll never forget the way she smelled, or the feel of her skin, or the weight of her in my arms.

I am so sorry that your little Grace Isabelle couldn't stay with you. My Meredith Helen was born October 3,1974, and lived for 3 days. Yes, that has been a long time ago, but we will never forget her! I never got to hold her or be in the nursery with her, so I really don't have many memories. What I do cherish is the fact that my father in law took photos of her at the funeral, so I can look at them and remember what she looked like.

Big Love, Big Acceptance - or so I say said...

This is generous of you. What a wonderful way to remember Gracie.

My daughter is Acacia. So few, yet such precious memories. She needed a breathing tube to keep her alive for a few short days - I remember she suckled on the tube. It was the saddest and sweetest thing. I remember breathing in her smell in the hospital, and breathing it in on her blanket that we brought home, but now the smell has been long gone. I remember how she just ooozed love. All of her family, and the nursing staff that worked with her, were so in love with her. Thanks for letting me share these memories.

My little girl is Kennedy Kate. I lost Kennedy on October 22, 2009. The one thing I remember most about Kennedy is how much I loved her...and wanted to feel her move and grow. I didn't get to meet my little girl in the physical world...but her and I have a special bond despite that.

Thank you for the giveaway idea...what a special way to honor your little girl.

Hi,

My little boy is Jacob and he was born on June 1, 2010. I have so many nice memories of my time with Jacob....the first time I felt him move, watching my belly grow, when I started feeling his kicks, the ultrasounds where I, in amazement, saw my baby. I was so happy I almost cried. He moved around so much during those ultrasounds. I could have watched him all day. I'd also lie on my back in the morning so I could see the outline of my uterus really well, staring at it in amazement. The first time I held in, in tears but so grateful that one of his eyes was open and I got to look into it. Wrapping him up in the blanket my sister brought to the hospital and rocking him.

Sorry, I know you said one thing, but I got carried away....

I was just about to write you a note for Gracie's birthday... What a huge milestone for you to pass through.
Freja's birthday is 3/25/09. I hold every memory I have of her close to my heart, and replay so many of them each day. By replaying everything in my mind on a daily basis, I've maintained the closeness to those days of her life. It doesn't seem like it all happened over a year ago, and I haven't forgotten much. I'm very scared to lose the details of her life as the months and years pass, so I hang on as tightly as I can.

I could have sworn I did this! Guess not! You know Alexandra Grace born 11/16/09. The thing I remember most about her is her little face. She looked just like me. :)

My Miah Anne passed away 5 minutes after she was born on Aug. 1st, 2009. One thing I remember and hold close is that while I was holding her while she was dying she moved once and then relaxed. She taught me so much about peace in those moments.

Janessa Marie born sleeping May 14th, 2009.

I remember how much she looked like her big brother. When he is sleeping I watch him & get a glimpse of her in him. It is incredibly bittersweet.

Love your giveaway!
