I just wrote a post that was pretty depressing. If your already in a not so great mood and haven't read it, I wouldn't suggest adding it to your reading list. In light of that, I wanted to do a more upbeat post.
I wrote a post last week called Elephants that explained how elephants made me think about Wyatt. I got a couple of comments where some of my "blog friends" told me what made them think of their child. It was so nice to hear about what made other people think about their babies I decided to dedicate a whole post to finding out what was special to each of you. I'm very interested in finding out your story behind what makes a particular item special for you.
I'm posting a MckLinky up at the bottom of this post, and would love if you could write a post that introduces a special stuffed animal, blanket, or even something random that makes you think about your baby. Even if you haven't lost a baby you are welcome to participate. If you have other children living and would like to include what makes you think of them, I would love to read about it.
Of course, Elephants will forever remind me of Wyatt...
I've never mentioned what makes me think of my other two children. Eli has a stuffed frog that he carries everywhere. Here's a picture of him with it. Not really a special story behind the frog... Eli just attached himself to his "fog" as he calls it. It doesn't get too far out of his sight.
As for Miss Ansley, she's recently attached herself to this puppy. I won't even mention the fact that she's taught Eli to dump all his food on the floor and lap it up like a dog... Not my kids! Ansley is also the entrusted protecter of Wyatt's elephant. She carries both around with her everywhere. I managed to get her to put Wyatt elephant night-nights while I got a quick picture of her with her puppy.
Now it's your turn. Write a post (if you feel like it or have time) about what makes you think about your child(ren). When your done writing it, come back here and link up to MckLinky so we can all read about it. I can't wait to see what has a special meaning to you.
