Shopping for Outfits

Today I brought presents for my best friend who gave birth to twins yesterday.  Then later at home I went online to buy an outfit for my baby I don't want this baby to be wrapped in a blanket like the boys were.  This time I have chosen something cute from: Cheeky Chums Online who in addition to their lovely range of premature clothes, also do a line in tiny burial outfits, baby pouches and even nappies.  I don't even think I need to point out how I felt about doing the same thing for completely opposite purposes.

I also brought a casting kit, not sure how I am going to manage to pull myself together to mix the stuff but I will give it a go, this time I want casts of the tiny feet and hands.

I am also contacting a photographer from Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.

We (me and baby) were also touched by how many visitors we have had.  Today alone we had 1,620 people visit our blog more than we had ever had.  In total over 11,000 visits from people all over the world.  Most haven't left a message, shame, but I tell my baby what a celebrity he/she has become, not to mention Vincenzo and Benedetto, who I hope are watching........

So many people know their story and for me that means they made an impression that will be left behind.

Oh Sweet Claudia!

I thought of you today. Aaron's funeral was lovely and his spirit was with us. I'm pretty sure your little twins were there with him as well. The veil between Heaven and Earth was very thin today and I know there were countless angels amongst us.

I am sending you my email address. If you will, send me your address, I want to send you one of Aaron's blankets. He has so many and I want you and your little one to have something of his.

If I were there I would mix that casting material for you. Our wonderful nurses did that for us and we too had a photographer from Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep come and take photos of Aaron. I'm anxiously waiting to see how they turned out.

Sending you my love! -Denise

SANDES provided a little outfit for my baby boy, at least I think it was them otherwise it was some other anonymous benefactor at the hospital. The photos the midwife took show him wearing it in his Moses basket with a patterned sheet.
