Letters to Andrew {3}

Dear Andrew,

Seven months my son. Seven. It seems impossible in so many ways still. This entire weekend was so bittersweet. We rode bikes, used our new grill for the first time, watched another country concert, and above all, wished you were there for every single second of it. It just doesn't get easier knowing that all my life experiences will be spent without you in my arms. You are always in my heart though. Always.

The print I ordered from Etsy arrived. It now sits amongst our family photos in the family room. Because you're family, baby. Your dad and I miss you so so so much.
Love,
Mom

Such a beautiful note!

I came across your blog today and it is especially touching...I lost my sons 7 months ago too. My heart aches for us both and all that we have lost.

Lovvve! The final is so gorgeous with that beautiful, fav quote! I love the deep color of the frame, too. Completely right - no matting needed. Yesterday, I was cherishing that we got to know Andrew by name early on, and to call him by name throughout your pregnancy. I thought it was so cool getting to feel him kick and seeing the imprints of him move, getting a piece of his personality, and by name. ♥
