Why do I feel like I need to remember every detail about the days I had with Andrew? I suppose it's because that's all I have. I asked Adam recently if he remembered how everything was laid out in Andrews’s niche. We were visiting Andrew’s special place, I was imagining what was on the inside, and all of a sudden drew a blank on what was in one of the corners. I started to feel a sense of panic. Adam told me that he does remember, but it’s getting less clear. I went home that night and drew it out, with my awesome drawing skills of course. I have pictures of everything we included in the niche and now, I have my drawing of how it's all laid out too. I’ve read many other blogs and realize that this need to remember every detail seems normal. Normal or not, I fear forgetting anything about Andrew.
Here are a few things we put in the niche with Andrew. Katelyn picked the bear out months ago for her baby brother (It's a smaller version of a bear that my mom had gotten for him). Adam chose a football for various reasons. We also included some pictures and notes that Adam and I wrote to Andrew.
This picture was taken of Katelyn the same time I took the picture of Andrews’s gifts...I wanted to remember how young and innocent she was. I love it when she puts her shoes on the wrong feet. It's one of my favorite things about childhood.
