But tonight I unpacked Seb's photos and ornaments and made his little place on our TV unit again. I have missed this. I didn't realise how much. The house feels right now. He is here. I know he's here in our hearts always, but I need my visual reminders too. And all feels right.

I'm planning a big family wall collage on one wall - in our dining/kitchen area, of course Seb will feature there too.
There's a perfect little corner shelf in the dining room too - that will be Seb's too - more pics, candles, ornaments, flowers and probably his ashes in an urn too.
Then I think I'd like a little piece of wall somewhere that's just for him. A friend sketched me the most beautiful drawing of my dear little one, and I will have it framed. I love it so much.
The kids will get photos of him in their rooms too.
And I will have the precious memory quilt on a wall (or two) somewhere hopefully near my sewing space.
Oh, and not to forget his spot in our garden. He will have a garden bench with a plaque and a little garden or tree. Where Mummy can sit quietly and think, and love.
He will be everywhere with us.
Its only natural I feel, as a loving and grieving mother that I want my baby everywhere. Just like you'd put photos up of your little pride and joy, so will I. And I hope that you will look at him and talk about him.
I'd love to know where you baby's things and pictures feature around your home. How do you keep his/her memory alive in your family home?
