Watching over his sister....

My husband bought some shelves the other day. Three corner shelves to hang above Madison's cradle in our bedroom. The idea was to put some special momentos on them, including some of Nicholas' things. I have arranged and rearranged them a hundred times. Nicholas' picture and memory box are there, as are his ashes (man, I find it hard to even type that words - his ashes - sigh...).

He now literally watches over his sister.

As she sleeps.

I know she is well taken care of.

Love you, Buddy.

So very sweet. I am after a shelf sort of thing for my living room for some of Caydens things. Right now everything is on top of the tv armoir (including his ashes) and I hate that ides. Love that Nicholas will always be near little Miss Sunshine.

it's beautiful....

4.5 years later and I still don't have anything set up... I just... wanted THE PERFECT thing and I couldn't find it... *sigh* maybe I need to be less picky? But it's hard.. I want her to have the best of the best of the best and I can't give her anything else really.
