Sharing my love...

at some point shortly after rebecca lost Lily, i decided that i was going to start taking pics of Juju daily. i was determined to cherish every.single.second with him since i had just witnessed through rebecca how quickly and unexpectedly life can change. and i'm so glad that i did that. {i guess you could say that Lily made me a better mother. thank you, Lily.} because of the daily pics, i have close to 300 pics of him on my phone. he was such a squirmy little boy, so i always ended up taking like 10 pics just to get 1 good one. i really only posted a fraction of the pics that i took of him. sometimes when i'm feeling "strong" i pull up the pics on my phone, and go through them. i did that this morning, and as i stared at this pic and cried, i decided that i would share a new pic of him each day until valentine's day. this is me, sharing my love, with all of you...

such a goofball, like his momma!


also, if you haven't yet already done so, check out the february giveaway for a blog makeover sponsored by franchesca of small bird studio. the giveaway will stay open until midnight on feb 13th, and the winner will be announced on valentine's day. good luck!

Ever since Julius left this Earth, I've thanked God for whatever it was that made you decide to take his picture every day. I never would have been able to stick to that, but you did! Now I know that I should thank God for Lily because she helped to give you such a beautiful, lasting gift. :-)
