Today is just going to have to be a two-post day.
I had ordered a few photos and I went to pick them up this afternoon. While I was waiting, one of the girls behind the counter said, "This is such a cute picture! What a cute baby!" I smiled and said, "Thank you so much!" My heart melted a little bit.
When the photo finished printing, she held it up for all the other girls working there to see. "Oh my goodness" and "awww" and "so cute!" filled the air. For a brief moment, I realized what it would feel like if he were here to show off.
I thought about telling them the sad news that this cute little baby has gone to heaven, but I realized there was no point in ruining it. Why not let them believe he is still a cute little baby, happily living in our home?
So I took my photos and went home with a smile and a happy heart for the first time in a long time.
I put the photo in a frame and stood back to look at it.
He is a cute baby <3
