Shopping For My Little Boy :(

Dereck and I headed over to the funeral home today so we could start getting some ideas together as to what we want to do for Liam's gravestone. We looked at different types of granite, font styles and sizes, shared some ideas of what we would like to see engraved on it- pictures, dates, a nice quote maybe, and looked at prices; but didn't make any decisions today.
After we left the funeral home we headed back to the cemetery and walked through babyland to see what other families have put on their child's gravestone. We want to do something special and unique for Liam's. We're not sure how long it will take till we get something put together, but we do want it done and in place by fall so we can hopefully see it before winter.
All I could think about while walking through babyland was just how unfair this is. So many of my friends and family right now get to go shopping for baby food, baby clothes, baby toys, baby books, etc. Of all the things I wish I could be buying for my little boy right now, shopping for gravestones is not one of them.


  1. Thinking of you on such a hard day... you're so right - it isn't fair. Whatever you choose, I'm sure it will be very special b/c it comes from your and your husband's heart. Love to you always xoxo

  2. Sending love, sounds just like me, we strolled and look at other babies heads stone. trying to decided on one....wasnt something i had ever imagined doing... not in a million years... xx

  3. Becky,
    I hope you can make a decision for Liam's gravestone. I can only imagine how hard it must be doing this task. Hope you have a good day. Hugs

  4. Thinking about you as you pick out a gravestone; I know Liam will love whatever you choose for him. I'm sorry that you're even shopping for a's so unfair that we're having to pick out gravestones for our babies instead of making baby registries and getting ready for their arrival. It seems like such a cruel trick that mother nature plays on us :(

    Anyways, I'm thinking about you, your husband, and Liam. <3

  5. Unfair is exactly right.

    I'm sure you'll make a beautiful choice for Liam's stone. :)
