just a reminder...

i was all prepared to blog about how Juju's death has changed me {and i still will, i'm still working on putting it together}, but instead i think today is a good day for a little reminder {to no one in particular}.

my son is NOT a tragic story. his death is tragic. but Julius is anything other than tragic. he IS my son, a beautiful person, a beautiful soul. a little boy who was full of life, and laughter and love. he loved cuddles. he loved to be held. he loved to be talked to. he LOVED to eat. he hardly cried. he loved splashing in the water during bathtime. he loved being carried in the baby carrier. he loved being bounced to sleep on the exercise ball. he loved looking at ceiling fans, and lights, and the television. he hated bottles, and pacifiers. he had the craziest poof of hair at the top of his head. he was the clone of his father {with his mother's curly hair}. he had eyes that would light up a room, and a smile that would light up the world. he is thought of every second of every day, deeply missed and deeply loved!

he will always remain part of our family. he will always be mentioned and included as long as i am alive. he is not something to get over or move passed. he is not just a story to be forgotten. he IS my son, a beautiful person, a beautiful soul.

I've been thinking about your Juju lots lately and everytime I do it brings a smile to my face. He had to be the happiest little man I've ever seen and definately had the most expresive face. Your loss was tragic but his life was a great joy.

I completely agree. I tried explaining this to someone once. While my sons death was tragic, it can't be the only thing remembered about his life.

The pictures you have shared of your son Julius show a happy and completely loved little baby boy.

Take care
