6 Months

Sweet Liam,
This past weekend was a busy one filled with emotion. Late on Friday night your father, I, Liz, and Kevin started our long road trip to Dawson City, Yukon. (and yes we did go to another country during our countries Independence Day weekend). It was great to get out of town and I really like Dawson City, its a very pretty area. I thought about you a lot and wondered if we would have actually taken this trip if you were still around. I am guessing we wouldn't have because it is 9-10 hour drive and our reasoning for going on this trip wouldn't have worked with a baby. We still would've done something fun with you though, just closer to home.
We did a lot of walking around the city and of course spent a lot of time at Diamond Tooth Gerties Casino. We were all so incredibly tired from the drive and also from staying up late at night. I thought I was doing well without letting my emotions get in the way but by Sunday afternoon, July 3rd, exactly 6 months, I couldn't hold it in anymore. We had gone to dinner, I was cold, tired, and really missing you. I ended up having to go to the car and had to have a good 5-10 minute cry, and then I felt better.
On Monday morning I got up before everyone else and wanted to do something special to include you in our weekend of fun. To show we were in Canada I grabbed a couple of maple leaf coasters I found at one of the bars the night before and thought they would be perfect to use. I just love seeing your name so I wrote it in all different ways around the city. If anyone goes on a walking tour of the city they might be curious as to who Liam is. I hope you like them.
I can't believe its been 6 months.
Love you and miss you always,


  1. love these pictures!!
    I love seeing Liam's name too :)

  2. the pictures are sweet! Sorry that it's been 6 hard months without your little man... so not fair!
    Sending lots of love up your way!

  3. Love the pictures Becky. Thinking of you and Liam always.

  4. I love the ways you wrote Liam's name. Six months without your son - my heart breaks for you. You and hubby are in my thoughts & prayers. xoxo

  5. Thinking of you and your Liam!

  6. Am sure your Liam will like the way you wrote his name. Six months is not a very long time but it seems like millions of years of grief to us. What if this was other way round and we were celebrating these milestones with our babies now. Thinking of you .
