Walkin' down Memory lane.. on foot, of course.

I realized something today. I am having a harder time remembering the happy moments with Seth. Not an IMPOSSIBLE time, just harder. So I've decided I'm going to try and get back to Wednesday's Walk Down Memory Lane with Lynnette and see if I can capture some of those, and other memories. I also want to remember some of the good memories our "big kids" have of Seth..

Today I had a moment memory with Kayleigh. We were cuddling in the rocking chair and she said something about Seth's feet. "Seth's feet were little." Yes, Kayleigh, Seth had little feet. "Not like MY feet." Not like your feet? Are your feet big? "Yes." "Mama, when Seth's feet get bigger, he wear MY shoes."

Tee hee, "He wear MY shoes." As if Seth would want to wear her little girl shoes! We DID talk about the fact that Seth was in Heaven and so he won't be wearing Kayleigh's shoes anytime soon. It was a sweet moment. I really treasure the times that my "big kids" and especially Kayleigh share Seth memories!

Kayleigh fell asleep in a weird position and I couldn't resist getting some pictures.

Sweet Feet! This was a happy memory. I am glad that you and your sweet little girl could share it together.

I loved the picture of how she fell asleep. Lynnette has a lot of those kinds of pictures of her kiddos too. Precious moments!

I am glad you shared these memories and special times today.

What a great memory! Thanks for sharing. And that picture, I thought only my kids fell asleep in strange positions (unlike other kids who look like angels when they sleep).

1) That was precious. What a sweet girl your little Kayleigh is. Such a sweetie and I'm so glad that she remembers Seth and doesn't shy away from mentioning him and talking about him. Good job Mom.

2) LOVE your couch!! Love the pattern. It's totally something I would pick.

3) So glad to see that I'm not the only mom with stained carpets! LOL! I AM NOT ALONE!!!
