A year ago today..

This small boy...



after spending 50 days in this same hospital room...



His first 50 days, and the first quarter of his life..






Got dressed in these fancy duds...




Cuddled with this nervous mama.....



Was placed in this (picked just for him) car seat...




And taken home...




Where he was welcomed with open arms.....


by this VERY experienced big brother...



and this less experienced big brother...


and this novice big sister.......





Creating this happy picture of four lovely children all together in our home.


A picture that lasted for all too short a period of time.


We ALL miss you, Seth. Thank you for blessing our lives.


Thank you, Jesus, for the grace, courage, and strength we witnessed in and through the circumstances surrounding our small miracle boy. We are grateful for the time we had with him and anxious to see him again in Heaven. In Your time.

I can't imagine how difficult it has been for you to have your arms empty after such a beautiful bundle of joy.

This is a beautiful pictorial tribute to Seth. Thank you for sharing.

Oh Kathryn, those pictures of Seth just grabbed my heart. What a beautiful and sweet boy your angel is. I hadn't seen some of those pics of Seth and so they took my breath away. We all do miss him.

Okay posting again... I kept looking at that second picture of Seth. What a beautiful picture and at first I thought "is it that he looks just like Sean?" and I realized... it's that he looks JUST like YOU Kathryn. I don't know how I didn't see it before. He has your face, the resemblance is so clear. I love that picture.

My sweet fellow heart momma! Oh MY GOODNESS...he is beautiful! I'm so very sorry for the lack of his presence here on earth. I can't even imagine *and hope I never have too* the pain of such a loss.

Sending hugs to you....

What a cutie and what a beautiful family you have! I'm so sorry for your loss. I miscarried last September and grieve for our Angel Baby who we never met. I can imagine your sorrow.

Prayers and hugs!

Steph said...

He looks so darling! I am so glad you have all those pictures of him with his siblings. :)

Hope you're doing ok with the milestone today. I know they hurt.
