Today, you would be exactly 18 months old. I can only imagine what an adorable little toddler you would be and how much you would make us all laugh as you would terrorize your brothers and get into their toys. I know we would all have so much fun together. I would have loved seeing a third little pile of presents with lots of sweet little girl things around the tree on Christmas morning and seeing your face light up as you ran with your brothers towards the tree and the presents. You might like your presents, but you might just prefer all the bright and shiny wrapping paper more. I know you would definitely be more into Christmas this year. I do hope you enjoyed watching over all of us this year as we celebrated. I am sure you enjoyed quite a celebration in heaven too. As we anxiously await the arrival of your little brother in just a couple more months, we have not forgotten you, our precious little angel. You will always be missed. Here are some of the ways we remembered and honored you this Christmas:
|We took this little Christmas wreath to your grave with some pretty flowers and butterflies and a bow in your special colors of aqua and pink.|
|Complete with a little silver angel ornament.|
|We added this little ornament to the tree in memory of you and in hopeful expectation of the soon arrival of your little brother, Mattox. We know you helped pick this little rainbow brother for us.|
|Your stocking still hangs beside your brothers'.|
|Your sweet little angel ornament hangs on our tree to remind us of you.|
|And your sweet little Christmas tree sits where we all can enjoy it beside your memorial scrapbook.|
Although I cannot have the joy of shopping for presents for you at Christmas time, I do get a little joy in picking out what you might have liked or worn during this special time.
|Daddy and I both think we would have enjoyed making you a dollhouse for Christmas this year. It likely would have been something like this that could grow with you from a simple little doll family to a growing collection of Barbie dolls.|
|A new baby doll would also likely have been on your list.|
|And I know you would have loved a stroller to push your baby doll in. Brody would have likely been a little jealous of this one.|
|And maybe a cute little ride for you.|
|Some cute Christmas jammies would have been a necessity.|
A pretty "fancy" Christmas dress for church and family gatherings.
|And a more festive red dress for our Christmas photos.|
We hope you will continue to enjoy watching over all of your family who loves you dearly until we can be together again.
With all my love,
