Just Remembering

Hi Bud

I was just remembering tonight about the day that your Mom and I saw our first picture of you, we were so happy:) we both just cried. The day you were born was the happiest day of my life, thank you. I believe that the 9 months and 1 day and a half I was your dad (I still am your father and don't you forget it) I was the best Dad ever, I loved and cared for you more than my own father ever did or ever will. I still smile when I hold your Mom's hand and rub her thumb and think of your soft skin. Your Grandma Wetherald is coming up for a visit tommorow so I will tell her that you say hi:)

Love Your Father

We're good

Hi Baby Boy
I spoke to Vicky today. She was our prenatal teacher, and nurse at the hospital. She gave me the angel baby pin I love so much. She said that your daddy and I have touched so many people. The other couples that had their baby's after you, heard what happened and Vicky showed them the tribute from the paper. Your daddy is an amazing writer. Vicky said everyone was very touched, and remembered your daddy and me by how happy we were, and that we always were so happy for everyone. She said she would like your picture for the class photo album, and you are a beautiful baby (like there was any doubt you would be)
I love you Mr. Twinkle Toes. I am so proud to be your moma.

Your Daddy

Hi Baby Boy,
I know your Daddy is having a hard time at work. I don't know if he's more upset being back to work or knowing I'm at home. I hope he knows I'm doing Ok, and I hope he's taking care of himself. We both know you're watching over us, but like your Daddy said, its so unfair that your watching over us, and not with us, where you should be.
We'd drive ourselves crazy thinking of all the things we want to do with you, but every now and then we'll have to write something out. Your Daddy wanted so much to share his love of "pop culture", old t.v shows and trivia. You'd be the smartest boy on the block, and cool too with all the old school music you'd learn. Do you remember dancing in my belly to Prince? We'll always have that won't we baby boy!
I love you so much.

Good Morning Jack

Good morning Buddy
It's nice and grey out there this morn, Thanks:) you know what kind of day Dad likes. I'm just having my breakfast and i'm gonna go to work in a few hours. It's my 3rd day back, it's going O.K. I guess, I still wish I didn't have to go back so soon, but it's better I guess than sitting around here all day. Your Mom is still sleeping (She needs all the sleep that she can get). Keep an eye on her today O.K. don't worry if you see her cry, that's actually good for her. I'm drinking my coffee out of my Barney mug, I wish we could have watched "The Flintstones" together.
Well Love you bud and i'll talk to you later

Love Dad

Alot of people really loved you Buddy

Hey there Son
I just wrote you a letter and it dissapeared (Weird), so here it goes again. We have gotten a ton of letters and cards from people all over the place but today we got a card all the way from Ireland! you have touched people all over the world buddy. I sure do miss you, why did you have to leave us, I'm so mad right now, I hate it that all of these people get to have their baby's with them at home but you can't be with us here physically:(
Sorry Bud, I just don't understand. Do me a favour and keep an eye on your Mom, I sure do love her and I know you do to.

Miss You

Hi Baby Boy,
today's been rough. I got your certificate of life in the mail. It sure is nice, but I miss you so much.
James Blunt was on the Oprah show today, and he sang his song "beautiful" I had a good cry, my head hurts, my stomach hurts, and I don't know how it will ever stop. I wish I could rewind time and see you again, just for a few minutes even...
I love you Baby Boy,
Love Momma

Grandpa W. brought up your memory box today from the hospital. As you know, Daddy took today off, and I was very relieved. We needed today together to look thorugh your special box. You know what, your blue blanket was with everything! Thank Goodness Daddy says, I wanted that blue blanket, I needed it.
I want you instead Baby Boy, I want you here to hold, and sing to, to snuggle with Daddy and watch shows. I just want you.
Love you Mr. Twinkle Toes
Love, Moma

P.S. Hi Bud it's Dad, I added these pics of your feet , there from your memory box...Cool Eh?

Nervous about tommorow

Hi Jack

Dad here, Just wanted to talk about tommorow. I'm going back to work tommorow, it's the first time since you were born (You will be 2 weeks old this tuesday). Anyways, I'm nervous about going in tommorow and seeing people and asking about you. Ever since you left us i'm just wondering if there is more to our lives (Your Mom and me) then what we are doing right now. I miss you so much buddy, it hurts. I watched a Trailer Park Boys special tonight and as I laughed I was sure wishing that you were with me laughing to. Well i'm gonna sign off and relax before bed (It's late so you should get some sleep to)

Good night Buddy

Love Your Dad

Update...Well Jack, Papa didn't get a really good sleep last night and I really don't want your Mama to be alone with your memory box, so i'm going to delay my return to work by 1 day (I don't think they'll mind)


Hi Baby Boy,
I'm not sure what to say tonight. I'm sory you've heard me yelling. I've been angry. I miss you so much. Sometimes it feels like this hasn't happened, like I never even had you, but I did, and I would never wish that away. Having you is the best thing I've ever done in my life, but now you're not here, and I feel like I havn't done anything with my life. I know thats not true, I thank goodness for your Daddy every day because he is so wonderful, he makes me feel better. I love you Mr. Twinkle Toes, do you hear me say Good Night, and Sweet Dreams ?
Love Moma
