5 months

Dear Isaac,

I can't believe that it has already been 5 months since you were born... since I first laid eyes on your beautiful face, first held your little hand, and first snuggled with you. I can't believe it has been 5 months since I last kissed your sweet little nose, tickled your soft little feet, and last held you. I miss you more than words could ever express. But I want you to know that you matter... you still matter... our lives, and the lives of so many others, are better because of your sweet little life.

I love you, Isaac. I am so proud of you.

Love,
Mommy

Stacy,

Praying for you and Spencer knowing that today was a harder day than others, although none are easy I'm sure. You're right, Isaac changed the lives of so many people. You may never even know the full impact his life will make in this world. I hope you both can feel some peace in your hearts
tonight.

Thinking of you today and praying for you, Spencer and Isaac. I watched your slideshow for the first time and was moved to tears. You have mentioned often one of your fears is people not remembering Isaac and how special he was and I want you to know that I will never forget him. Although you don't know me, I am forever changed by your story and your beautiful son. You are one of the most courageous people I know. I wish you and Spencer the best.

Hi Stacy,
I was on the West Coast this weekend and both Friday and Saturday I heard a song that plays on your blog (the one with the lyrics "so keep me awake to memorize you") I thought about Isaac all weekend and didn't realize it was the 5 month mark until I just saw your blog. Isaac's presence is everywhere and I just wanted you to know that I felt it this weekend. Prayers and hugs to you and Spence.

Isaac will always matter. He matters to me, and I never even got the chance to meet him. He is keeping my son Luke company in heaven and that means the world to me. I love it when you post pictures of Isaac.

Love,
Liz Timmerman

Isaac is so beautiful. Thinking of you.

I continue to pray for you all, and I think of Issac everyday...everyday. He matters to us all, and your family of 3 continues to teach lessons to me. Another blog reader was right when they said Issac's presence can be felt everywhere. He shows up, and nudges me daily...a persistent little boy, he is probably laughing up there :-) ~Mary p

Michelle R said...

So, I'm crying right now. He is so beautiful. I can't imagine how much you miss him, because I never met him personally and I miss him. Thank you for posting the pictures of Isaac.
