Like this Teddy Bear...
Wow. Just wow. Creative, to say the least. Other ideas that I've found are encapsulating it so that the mother can take it in pill form to regain the nutrients. Using it to make art...and my personal favorite, planting it under a tree, bush, flower, or other plant in honor of the baby.
(We will probably go with the last one).
Damon is just precious, and we love having him as a part of our family. It's been an adjustment, nonetheless. I am pretty freaked out about having to handle the two of them on my own. But I still have a few days before I will face that challenge.
Dmitri loves the "baby". He is constantly giving him kisses, wanting to hold him, and petting his head (he is unbelievably gentle for a 21-month-old)! He also enjoys pointing out his hair, eyes, nose, mouth, tongue, chin, ears, and toes! It completely makes my heart melt to see how sweet they are together:
Dmitri & Damon (Damon is yawning, not crying! Haha!)
That last photo reminds me so much of this photo of Dmitri...
Sometimes, I think that I've given birth to twins 20.5 months apart.
As we adjust to life as a family of four, and I start back classes, I plan to slowly resume my normal blogging. I have several projects/changes to share... = ) But I'm trying my best to take it easy, let my body heal, and focus on loving my two boys.
