I have a memory box with a little sleeping stuffed dog in it... i bought it when i found out i was pregnant with joshua and its about the same size Joshua was when he was born.
Im planning on getting his name tatooed on my leg and a braclet. But that is in time.

I have a necklace with his name on it (though I don't wear that much anymore right now - but I wore it for a year pretty much all the time except at work), I have Sheepie, and I have a blanket. They're kind of my big three.

I have several charms that were given to me. I wear one at all times, one for them each.

I also have the Mothers ring that my husband bought for me on Mothers Day this year which I wear everyday. It has a diamond (my birthstone) and two tourmaline stones, one for Ella and one for Logan. I cherish it because my husband included Logan when he bought it and it means so much to me to have BOTH of my babies represented.

Then, this may be weird but I have a calendar and a photobook in my purse at all times. I can't bring myself to take either out. The calendar is a 2008 calendar and it has all of my appointments written down throughout pregnancy, their weights and such as well as what I did each day (or lots of days...not all). The photobook has all my ultrasound photos...including one I found they must have given me after they said he was gone. I still don't understand why adn I don't remember it being handed to me. The only ultrasounds I had that day were the one in the room where she couldn't find the heartbeat and then the one down in radiology with the perinatologist to 'confirm' he was gone. I can't imagine why they'd have taken a picture either of those times nad given it to me? So weird. Anyway, I can't take those two things out, at least I haven't yet (and it's almost been a year).

Those are my things...at least they are the ones I carry with me on my person or in my purse every single day. I have lots of other 'special' things at home, like his pictures and his memory box with special clothes and the blankets my grandmother made for him, and his monogrammed blanket and his footprints and stuff.

His memory box, pictures, cremains/urn, my memory glass pendant, and blanket a friend crocheted for me. I plan to get a memory glass orb made and I'm considering having a mother and baby/child cameo made.


I got it in apricot since his birth stone is citrine.

Besides the footprints tattoo and the photos we have, there is a blanket that he was wrapped in and a little baby basket that the nurse carried him in to bring him to us; the hospital gave them to us. Both items are upstairs, in the closet of the bedroom that was supposed to be Noah's room.

In addition, I have a silver heart-shaped charm with a blue crystal hanging from it that says "In Heaven Noah 7-22-2008" that I used to wear with the mother/child charm on my chain. It kept getting tangled, so I took it off and placed it in a box for safe-keeping.

Thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggie!

*a special 'thank you' to all the blinkie creators for their talents*

I have a little angel pin with his birthstone I wear most of the time...The mother duck holding a baby duck that is on his memory shelf because I held it during the funeral and burial service and then it was the first thing Bill and I ever put on his grave...a few days later I took it and carried it around with me everywhere. The wooden tray I use as his memory box was the container for a set of cute duck clothing I wanted so bad when I was pregnant with him and I bought it about 6 weeks before I had him. The owl outfit we bought...DH loves owls and it was just the cutest outfit, even though he never got wear it. The little clay molds of his hands and feet in seashells the hospital gave us. Those are my favorite mementos.

I have the blanket he was wrapped in and the clothes they put on him in a shadow box on the mantle in the living room next to his urn and some cherub statues I've collected.

I have my heart ring that has his name engraved that holds some of his ashes and I have a heart charm bracelet that I got for my b-day and added a charm to on his b-day. I plan to add a charm to it each year on his b-day.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy Follow us on Facebook

I have the frame with her picture and her hand print in clay. That hand print...it's proof that she was real. I hate to say it, but pictures can be faked, but that hand print is real. I also have some heart shaped emerald earrings. Emerald is her birthstone.
