A butterfly for Jacob

Laurie dropped by with Ben and Daniel tonight. It was a nice surprise. I even asked to hold the baby, which is something I've rarely done with Daniel. But I wanted to hold him. As they left, Laurie called me over to look at the stroller. Under the hood, where Daniel looks at when the hood is pulled forward, she put a stick-on butterfly decal. For Jacob. It made me happy. He is included.

After they left, Ted told me he felt sad seeing me hold the baby, which I had been worried about. Oh, what could have been.....

How sweet is that?!?! :)

I'm sorry your hubby was sad watching you with Daniel. :( What could have been is damn right.

Okay I read that and caught myself writing more less the same thing Laura just said. But that really was very sweet of her and yes knowing the what could have been just sucks.

How sweet of Laurie. It feels good to know that our boys will always be loved and remembered. <3
How I wish Jacob was there with you running through the house keeping you on your toes. <3 It's so so so terribly hard. Sending you so much love today!

Jacob will always be a part of your family and his little cousin will know him. That's such a beautiful gesture.
