A gift from Big Sis~

I was out shopping today and decided to buy something from Lily to her baby brother and could not resist myself when I saw this little onesie...

Its a little sad for me that I will have to pack up all Lily's stuff because we will not be able to use any of it for this baby, because I'm pretty sure that he is not going to want to sleep in a nursery full of pink and brown ladybugs and wear dresses :) And, I know his daddy is not going to allow any of that frilly stuff to happen, either!

I know I'm going to cry several tears as we change the nursery around to fit another baby, and I'm trying to tell myself that Lily understands and that she is happy to have a little brother...and, that she knows that Abebe doesn't take away our love or replace her in any way. Lily will forever be her daddy's little girl and her mommy's little princess.

We miss you and love you, baby girl..

That is SO cute, but yet so hard to pack up the nursery I have yet to do that! still all there in the same spot! I hope it goes well and does not get too hard for you!

I love the's so cute and such a great gift from Lily. By the way, about a week ago I drove past a place called Lily Park and it made me think of you. I know packing up the nursery will be extremely hard. I didn't really have to do that, but I did put away my one favorite outfit that I had for her to wear home from the hospital. It's way too warm for Eleanor to wear in July (Ada was due in November), but I'm not sure what to do with it. Anyway, I hope it's not too hard to pack everything up. *hugs*

I love that you keep Lily alive and real to everyone. And I can't wait to hear the stories from her little brother about the angel on his shoulder.

But, what's wrong with ladybugs? I hope you leave one of them in Junior's nursery for him to remember her.

I'm sorry about packing up Lily's nursery. We're sending you much love and support!
