hold this thread as I walk away


I love the sweater that Gideon is wearing in this picture. It zips down the back starting at the hood and when you are putting it on him he looks like a little elf. That's not my favorite thing about it though. The best thing about this sweater is that it belonged to JQ when he was a baby. Twenty-nine years and still holding strong.

mel—I know. It's amazing what gets hung on to.

hillary—You know I'm going to have to keep it forever.

naynay—I have a box started with "must keeps". His first outfit, Halloween costume, tie-dyed onesie, etc. I'm a sucker for sentimentality.

I love the story behind the sweater. My husband and I have things that one day I want our children to wear or have.

That's awesome that you have the box of firsts. I would do something like that too.

naynay—It's hard not to keep everything.

That sweater looks timeless.

We have a picture of Calem in a onsie my brother wore. I don't think Calem wore it much, as it didn't have snaps by the legs. LOL

Lynda—I know. Could you imagine if it had a butterfly collar? We still would put it on him...we'd just laugh about it.
