I have Emily's special stuff right in my living room in a curio stand that only contains her stuff I have as memories of her.
Her hand molding,birth pillow,her pink baby hospital hat,her Bible from church,willow tree figures,and ballerina figurines, because before I knew she was a she I dreamed of her being a ballerina in heaven.Anyways I keep alot of her stuff, and things I've collected that reminds me of Emily in the living room for all to see, just how much I love her and that she is still no matter what a huge part of my life even though she only lived for 17 minutes after birth, she will live forever in my heart.

I have Sami's teddy bear urn in our bedroom. When we fall asleep that is the last thing we get to see and we wake the first thing, always makes me smile. We also have a beautiful canvas picture of her by it. The are is pretty big so we have lots of things for her there. We have a letter sign that says family, hope and love. We also have pictures and a memory box with the little items we had on her the day she was born, like her booties and cap.
Around our home we have pictures of her as well. In Julian room we put up her angel wings that Lea made for her and a prayer angel. There is no place in our home that does not have something to remind us of Sami. Oh how I miss her!!!

I don't really have room to have a special place for Terry's stuff until I am able to find a shelf or something. Right now all of his stuff is in a small plastic tote on the shelf of my closet because I haven't been able to find anything else to put it in. I have his outfit he wore, all of his things from the hospital, a couple of outfits that were bought for him, some of his hair that the hospital cut for me, his footprints and other stuff like that. I just wish I would have been more prepared and been able to get more keepsakes from the day of his birth.

I keep most of Jasper's stuff in his room on his dresser. There are a couple of things I like to keep near me though. I keep Jasper's blanket in a special bag under my pillow and I sleep with his teddy bear.

I have Janie Beth's things in a trunk by my bed. The stuffed animals sit on top of the trunk and the blankets that wrapped her are draped over the back. I have some things on my dresser as well. I can't wait to move wherever we are moving and do a little more for her, like a shelf in the living room.

I keep most of Freja's things in boxes and baskets on a shelf in my bedroom. I really need to organize and store her thing better than they are, but I'm waiting for DP to make a memory chest. We went and looked at some exotic woods the other day, and we finally settled on two types that we liked - cocobolo and lacewood.

I keep the little box that the hospital gave me, in the top of my dresser. I feel like it's safe there. Tucked away. Surround by some of my clothes. I guess I just feel like his things are with mine. We're together in a way.

We still have most of Lilly's things out in our bedroom, not put away. That's cause I'm not ready to put them away. I'm not sure where we'll put them or what we'll keep them in. I would like to keep her things that we decide to put away in something that is easily accessible as we will want to see them probably everyday for awhile.

Karen said...

Unfortunately I do not have a special place for Faith's things. I have a large rubbermaid container that I keep it all in. I do keep it close by so that I have easy access to it.

We bought a large cushioned bench that sits at the end of our bed. It opens up and all of Noah's things are in it. It's great because my other son, Ethan comes in every morning and sits on the bench to watch cartoons.

We have pictures and other momentos of Dylan up all throughout the house. But I also have a special shelf of his stuff in our upstairs hallway right across from what would've been his nursery (now it's our daughter's nursery).

This is just so beautiful and lovely. I keep Maddie's stuff in a couple of places - the hospital gave us a little pink memory box with a blanket in it when we left. We got the blanket and her hand/footprints framed, but I keep her other set of footprints, the positive HPT's I got with her, my hospital bracelet, and a memory bracelet in there. I also have a larger storage tote with all of the cards/letters we received for her birth, the newspaper with her obituary, and lots of other things.

I think it's just so sweet that you honor Carleigh this way.

I bought memory boxes for each of my babies, and they are on a special shelf in my room, but I haven't brought myself to fill them yet. Their things are in the same places I kept them while I was pregnant...ultrasound picture on the fridge, blanket in a drawer, cards together, bracelet with my jewelry. I'll get there when I'm ready.

I have a very special box that a co-worker of my moms made for us. It has a stick horse and a cowboy hat burned on top along with his name. With all the gifts that we have been given a second box would be greatly appreciated!!!

Mary said...

I feel like I have so many places...a memory box, pictures on the wall, her blanket and bear in our bed everynight. It was too hard to just put it all away, so it seems like it is all over! I am sure my friends think my house is a shrine!

We have a shelf on the entertainment center in the living room where we keep most of Kasey's things. I like to be able to see and walk by him several times a day!

i have had 3 children go home too soon in the first trimester and i have a precious moments memory box that i hold the very few things and letters i have from those babies.

thank you for the opportunity to tell the weird way i treasure my daughter's things!!!

you see, i'm a very ocd type of person. i'm homeschooling my living children. when we made it out of first trimester safely, i jumped on the hope bandwagon and immediately set about buying her all of the storage containers etc that the "big kids" had..... even a storage bin to match theirs with her name (peace) written on it to keep her school stuff in just like the big kids (i know, roll your eyes, i was planning on homeschooling this baby! lol but it made me happy at the moment to have a place to plan for her life with us)

when she died, we were in the midst of moving. so i grabbed the only box with her name on it and put all of her clothes/letters/medical records in it..... so my precious place for my baby girl is.... her school box! (we're STILL trying to move 7 months later so i haven't unpacked it. i dread doing that)

I keep all of Amiee;s things in a big storage bin right next to my bed. I have a mempry box that I made with the extra fabric from the blanket that we made for her. That is where i keep the outfits that she wore. And there is the bear that was hers given to us from the funeral home. My son sleeps with it every night.

I have a lot of Eliana's momentos sitting on our entertainment center in our living room. I want to get a nice memory box or chest sometime soon, but for now the rest of them are just in a little basket in my bedroom. The wooden boxes are beautiful!

Meredith has several shelves of things like angels and stuffed animals. I ordered a heart shaped box from Franchesca and it is nearly full with beautiful mementos that other BLMs have sent me.I just love to look at her things and know that she has a special place to be remembered.

Family and friends resent the many mementos I have for Jayden everywhere, His photo is all over my walls and his urns from room to room as I please. His photos cover my schoo binders, and often my computer desktop. He has a shelf in my dining areo dedicatedf to just him, with tinkets and toys and photos and stuffed bears; I sleep with his blanket every night. I have a tiny momento box by my front door on "Jaydens table" it has a locket of his hair, and his last handprint. The table holds figurines, and pictures; this box and a few candles. Jayden is all over my home. And always in my heart.

I keep most of my memories, photos, cards, etc. in the little box that they gave me at the hospital. I treasure it with my heart because it is the one thing that I held in my arms when I left the hospital. This memory box that you are giving is beautiful and perfect for the small memories that we have in place of our children.

I dont have anything from my baby besides a spot where he/she should be in my arms and the ache in my heart that misses him/her.

Rikki said...

This box looks beautiful. I dont have a memory box for my boys things yet but i really want to get one. I hate that there things get so dusty.

Most of my boys things are on my bedside table, their urn, their blankets and the clothes they were wearing, photos and i even have their christmas tree still there too. Their stuffed animals that they had with them in the hospital dont leave my bed, i sleep with them tucked in besides me every night.
