Me & This Owl

Oh my gosh, the more I look at the photos that Erin Moore from Auntie Camera took of Asa, the more I want to put them ALL on here...  but tonight, I want to share just one...

Do you know what's special about this photo?  Well, besides the ridiculously cute baby in it?

This hat came in the mail the day I got home from the hospital with Asa.  It was made by one of my blog readers, Keileigh.  Now, as if the hat wasn't awesome enough... and the timing of receiving it wasn't just perfect...

Do you know what you can't tell by looking at this hat?  The same thing that you can't tell by looking at me....

There is a piece of Rachel on the inside.

Keileigh tied a little pink bow on the inside in memory of Rachel.  And so me & this owl have a couple things in common - we both really like being wrapped around Asa - and we both have Rachel's memory tucked away inside.  Thanks Keileigh!

OK, and so I lied... I have to share one more cause it goes along with this post too....and well, I just can't get enough of this kid.  This photo needs no explanation.  She's always there with me.


  1. He's so very precious! It's beautiful to read about how Rachel is so very much with you always and how your friends remember her with you. <3

  2. Aww, what a precious baby boy you have :-) I love the pictures and and that Rachel's memory is always with you!

    Hugs, anja

  3. Gorgeous! Love the pink bow inside!!! What a sweet way to keep Rachel close in heart & mind! <3

  4. Love this post! :) I love the pictures of your precious, sweet little boy. He is just so kissable. I'm glad that you are enjoying him to the fullest. I'm glad too that people have found a way to include Rachel with Asa. It is for sure a bandaid for the heart. I LOOOVE your tattoo(I know I have said that before). I still want to go get one for Ethan.

    Praying for you! Thanks for sharing! :)

  5. He is absolutely precious! What a gift!! I just heard the song Glory Baby by Christy Nockels & all I could think of was your journey. It's beautiful just like you, Rachel, & the rest of your family!!

  6. <3 this post, <3 the pictures, <3 you, <3 Rachel, <3 Asa and all your entire beatiful family.

  7. Love it all! I love your tattoo!


We so appreciate your words of encouragement!
