Nine months

Today our sweet Benjamin would be 9 months old. What would he look like? Nine months is such an adorable age, with little baby  teeth and huge smiles and maybe scooting around a little. I thought I could get a better mental picture of what he might be like right now if I looked at pictures of my other three sons at that age. A little tricky, since I'm currently in another state and don't have access to all my pictures. But here are a few I found:

Okay, nine months is an absolutely delightful age! I love imagining what Benjamin would--will--be like at that age.  If you have a baby near that age, give them a special kiss today!

It has been so comforting to be with family. They miss Benjamin, too, and don't mind how much I talk about him. :) Today it was so sweet--my brother and sister-in-love and their children picked wildflowers to put on the monument. Oh, I haven't posted about the monument Mom and Dad have placed for him! That will be a separate post soon. . . .

Here's a picture of our family today, remembering our beloved son / brother. We love you, Benjamin! Just can't wait to see you again!

Nine month old babies are adorable! That was the image that got me through my last horribly difficult pregnancy. The vision of that age baby. Your family looks so sweet! Have you had that day to yourself yet?

So glad you were all here in Snowflake at the time Benjamin would have been nine months. I love the scrapbook pages you are making for him and the activities you do to keep him alive in our hearts. Loved the post!

Thanks, Cindi! I did have that precious day to myself, two weeks ago today. I want to do a special post on it. It was so awesome! Wish I could do that every week. :)

How beautiful! What a special family you have, Michelle. I am so glad you are getting lots of time with them right now! I have been thinking about Benjamin a lot this week. I love the pictures of the kids you posted. The middle one is how I remember your two oldest when I first met you!

Thank you for all of your prayers.

I miss you!

Your 3 boys are adorable, and so cute at 9 months. They look very similiar. What a beautiful monument. You all look so wonderful. I sure miss you.
