My Mommy got me this handmade Amish doll cradle. I filled it with some of Leah's favorite toys. Her giraffe, Duckie, one of her many doll babies, and of course, Big Bird from the video.
Then I took a super cute photo of Leah with her giraffe:
And put it next to that toy:
And then I repeated it with Duckie on the other side:
I wish I hadn't had to wash Duckie so often - he (she?) is losing some of the yellow color and his (her?) fur isn't what it used to be. I remember Leah used to pluck at the fur like a little monkey would to pick off bugs.
The cradle and pictures are in our room; on our TV hutch.
And this is still one of my favs; and I keep Jeff's cremation pendant on there for safe keeping:
And lastly .......... I recently ordered a new urn for a portion for my butterfly angel babies ashes:
So now we have 2 official urns for Leah. Her teddy bear urn that sits on the mantle, and this one, that is by our bed. Since the day we brought her ashes home I have kept some in the original container on my night stand. I wanted to get something special to keep in our room so I could still have them close by while I sleep. I've had this new urn for well over a week and yet .......
......... I still have the plain white box with her remaining ashes sitting on my night stand.
