Julian is the only person who speaks of Sami all the time and I love it. He loves his sister's. We went camping last weekend and as we drove onto the beach he remembered her name written on the sand. He kept saying "like Sami mommy" he is seriously so adorable. I have even heard him tell Emma something about her like he was trying to tell her something about her sister.
When Sami passed one of her nurses gave us a pink teddy bear with wings. Julian never plays with it because he knows it is for Sami but for some reason last night he wanted to hold the bear. He kept saying her name but I couldn't understand what he was trying to tell me about her. Anyhow, he fell asleep with his monkey friend and the bear. When I walked into the room this is how I found him, I just had to take a picture of this.
How sweet is this?
Emma is so blessed to have big brother like Julian. Sami may not be here with us but she is never far from our thoughts and always lives in our hearts and Emma will definitely know about her big sister.
We baptized Emma a few weeks ago and of course Sami bear joined us.

I loved that our priest included Sami in our ceremony. To me when anyone mentions her name I just instantly smile. It doesn't cause any sadness in my heart that is for sure. When it happens it just validates that she was real and existed even if it was for a short while.

You are an amazing family. The picture of Julian is so made my heart melt. I know Emma will know Sami and she is so lucky to have a big sister watching over her (along with a great aunt). You are always in my heart and on my mind. {{{HUGS}}}

My oldest Ridge talks to our kids in Heaven alot. I think it's so good for them.
You have such a beautiful family.

That is the sweetest picture of Julian! I'm glad that he remembers & talks about Sami. That was really a nice gesture for the priest to include her in the baptismal ceremony. It does our hearts good to hear our babies' names, doesn't it? xoxo
