I have quite a few keepsakes that we are lucky to have. I think my favorite would be William's gown. He was so tiny, it amazes me that a gown that would fit a barbie doll as a dress was still a little big on my Angel. I think even after almost 4 years I can still smell him within it.

Just had to mention that 10pm is late for me too. I never get to bed until around 11pm, but 10 is late. Heck, 8pm feels late these days :o)

Have a great weekend!

My favorite keepsake is a piece his hair. I didn't realize the hospital gave it to us until I started going through his stuff a few weeks after I delivered him (it took me a little while to be able to look at the stuff). I will cherish that forever along with everything else we have (the gown he was in, the blanket he was wrapped in, etc.).

I dont have alot of keepsakes but I do have the hippo that we placed on his grave for the first 2 months that I sleep with. I wish I had more like the blanket that he was wrapped up in. I wish I had something that smelled like him.

Unfortunately I never had a chance to receive anything from my little ones, well except 2 stretch marks. For the longest time those little marks made me remember my little ones. Now I take every moment to remember the lives i never knew. Starting with poems and notes to them from daddy and me to angel christmas gift from them to their brother. I have moved on from the mourning process but will never ever for them.

The only keepsake I have from my first pregnancy was the first and last ultrasound picture of the twins....I still carry it around in my purse and often bring it out and just stare at it....

My fav. keepsake from Lauren is deff. the hat that was knitted from the Volunteers at the nursery from the Hospital. I pull it out often and just look at it. Can't believe that fit Lauren. That little pink and white hat....still smells like Lavender lotion. To think 21months ago she wore it...amazes me. The grow sooo fast

Now that I think about it I have more than I thought I did! I have pictures, his blanket, socks that he was wearing/ laying on when he grew his wings. We also have molds of his hands and feet. I sleep with 2 of the small pieces of fabric that they put over his eyes too.

I have so many keepsakes that mean the world to me.... All our pictures and videos, her sleepers that she wore and receiving blankets she was wrapped in which her older sisters were also wrapped in as babies... Her piece of hair, footprints, and life-size moulds of her hands and feet that our most awesome nurse made and brought to us very unexpectedly on the day of her funeral... There are so many things. I just love them all, and they will be an important part of our family forever.

I know I already won the bracelet, but I still wanted to share.. we have so many keepsakes, but my favorite is a tiny pair of pink socks that she was wearing when she passed, and stuck in them is her Bert's bee's chap stick.. (the oxygen dried out her lips) and I keep them in my sock drawer.. everytime I miss her too much, I put on just a little bit of her chap stick..its like giving her kisses again.. :)

I have quite a few keepsakes from my son Dylon. He was 17 months old when he passed away suddenly from mennigitis. I think that my favorite keepsake would be the lock of hair that the hospital gave us the day he passed away. My second favorite keepsake has to be the tattoo I have on my foot. It is Dylon's footprint from the day he passed away. Along with the footprint is 2 hearts with the "birthstones" of my other 2 children. Have a wonderful weekend!! =)

My mum got Eli a stuffed elephant toy and jett a lion toy to put in their casket to be cremated with them but i couldnt let them go. They had their toys with them until they left the hospital and after i left the hospital if i wasnt holding those toys i couldnt sleep. So i kept them and they are my favourite things from them. Even now i cant sleep without them and even take them away with me on holiday.

Unfortunaltey I don't have anything since I lost my baby a couple days after I found out. If there was anything I could have I would like to have had a sonogram picture.

Once A Mother said...

My favorite is one of Peyton's Nukke pacifiers, I held it tight in my hand throughout her whole funeral. I also have her hand and foot prints and a lock of her hair, as well as her clothes. I am grateful to have them, but have been unable to look at them yet. Though it has been a year, my heart is still just too broken.

Almost a Mother said...

I guess my favorite keepsake would be their hospital bracelets. Most of the stuff in the hospital memory box the babies never wore, and it wasn't near them. But their hospital bracelets were wrapped around their tiny, tiny ankles and they said "W twin A" and "W twin B". I keep them in my wallet so I see them everytime I open it. :)

Bree said...

My favorite keepsake has to be the blanket Ella was wrapped in right after she was born. I've slept with it every night since losing her. It has never left my arms and is turning quite yellow. But, I don't care. I love it!

Congratulations to the winner of the suncatcher!Thank you Holly for all the giveaways to help make our days brighter. I don't really have many keepsakes of Meredith, but I do treasure her birth certificate.
I wish I had her hand & footprints and a lock of her hair, and the hospital bracelet that was on her.
God bless - Sarita

My favorite keepsake from Jadyen is his blankie. I rememeber how excited I was buying the Lightning McQueen fleece blanket over a month before his first birthday. It took EVERYTHING in my power not to give it to him early, an for it not to be the first present he opened at his b-day party. Daddy finally handed him his present, wrappened especially in lightning mcqueen paper with a tremendous amount of love from Mommy. I saw his eyes light up as he tore back and paper and felt the blanket, a picture captured this beautiful moment I will never forget...In the next six months (the last six months of his amazing life) he took that blanket everywhere, it could not leave his side. The red faded out, the blue faded, and the edges wore; and it beame dirty. I recall the first time I washed it, he sat watching it go around and around in the washer, he had to transfer to he dryer, and then he watched around and around in the dryer; when it was finally finished, he curled up on the couch with it and went to sleep. An amazing peice of my son, that lightning Mcqueen blanket is. I eventually want to sew it together, and make it an actual pillowcase (but I havn't yet, because I'm not too sure), althought I do wrap it around my pillow everynight before I fall asleep and wake up with it against face every morning. A simple reminder to me that my sons beautiful and amazing self is always with me; especially in my dream.

Congrats to Mary.
I would like to be entered in the giveaway. I know with my children here on earth I have crib cards & hospital braclets. I also have there first stuffed animal that they recieved.
With my 2 angels in heaven I have only my hospital records of being there when they were lost. I should say the D&C record. It's not something I would save on to but it's all that I have. I do have a ultrasound picture of my 1st one. The other one was only at 8 wks.

my favorite keepsake of my baby boy is the tiny tiny gown and blanket that he was wrapped in before i saw him. the top of the gown closed with a blue drawstring ribbon, and i remember thinking it looked like the ruffles clowns or queens where on their necks, and i wondered why they would put that on my baby. i love smelling and touching them.
