look who made it... the top of the blog!

I love this one of Cora & Levi.
My two sweet babies.
I wish I could see them as brother and sister.
And it kills me that we can't have a "complete" family picture.
I feel like I have our family picture with Cora,
and our family picture with Levi, 
and there should be someway to combine them.
Not like combine them with Photoshop.
Really combine them.
But I can't.
I think that will always be hard for me.

So, Levi is now part of the blog banner.
Some of you have been bugging me to add him for weeks now.
And I want to assure you that it wasn't because it was too hard 
or I didn't want him up there that his pictures didn't get added right away.
It was purely procrastination on my part.
I don't know how to change the banner myself.
(I need someone to teach me all those tricks!)
And it took me awhile to get the pictures to Danielle.
I love seeing him up there now too.
Just like all of you!

Thanks for making Levi part of the blog banner Danielle!

Love the new banner! I can completely understand that "procrastination." Life is all a jumble when a new baby enters your life and it just makes getting things done quickly hard. You have beautiful babies, Joel and Jess. May God continue to bless you...HUGS!

Well like everyone else has said I just love it!!! I also wish nothing more than for your family picture to have Cora and Levi together here on earth. They are both so beautiful and it is so sweet to have them right next to eachother on my computer screen.

Thinking of you in FLA!

Love the new blog as well! I know this isn't what you were thinking, but I have seen families who have lost a child take a picture of that child that is framed and HUGE and hold it in the picture with them.

They are both adorable. I like to read your blog. you always have such faith, and it has really opened my eyes. I have started praying again and I am looking for a church to go to with me and my children. I lost faith in god a long time ago, after everything in my life seemed to be horrible. I was a selfish teenager then and thought god couldn't love me if he has let the one person who means anything in my life die when i need them most. and let somebody else abuse me every day. But I am older now with my own children and have thankfully learned that it has nothing to do with anything that i did, and i am finding god again. It's important my kids know about god as well. So i guess this has nothing to do with the picture but thank you for sharing everything that you do in your blog.

Your strength is incredible. Remember, by loving Levi you are honoring your baby girl. Can't imagine how much you miss her. I hope you always keep pictures of her on your blog. She is beautiful.

the picture of Levi on the right side of your blog, and the picture of Cora with your mom that you posted for her birthday..... look like the same baby! I cant believe how much they look alike! (at least i think one is cora and the other levi!!) Love the new pics, stay strong!

Oh that is SO GOOD Jess! I have been wondering and I didn't want to bug you, but I've been thinking that Levi should git on up there in the banner!

Your babies are beautiful, indeed.
The new banner is wonderful.

I have been reading your blog for awhile, this is mu first comment. I am so sorry for your loss and I am also truly amazed at your strength, at least what I can read from your blog. On the family photo, you could try having a picture(like in frame) of Cora in a current family photo. Families used to do this a long time ago, I'm talking great-great-grandparent era, but I always think it is a nice way to show that a loved one has been lost, but not totally. Just a thought!

So sweet :) I love seeing both of your precious blessings up on the blog. I adore the quilt that Levi is lying on in the sidebar pic. Just gorgeous!

May you be blessed today and always, Jess. I think of you guys often.

Aww, I love that one of Cora and Levi too. I should also mention that I love that quilt Levi is sleeping on in that picture -- so cute!

He's absolutely adorable! The new blog banner is great too. What a fun time too with friends. It seems my friends married guys my husband doesn't particularly care for. Mostly that's true for his friends too, I just don't click with the wives. Lucky for both of you to have that!
