Family Pictures

We had family pictures taken last week Ethan.  We saw you there a few times, as your butterflies fluttered above us.  My friend Chelsea took the photos.  She was supposed to take these back in June, when you were supposed to be in my belly still.  I couldn't bear to have them taken in June, the pain of your absence in our family photos being too raw.  I felt your absence still, and longed for you to be in those pictures.  Did you hear Jackson yell hello to you those few times?  He loves you so much.

Your brothers' blue eyes were stunning in the photos.  I wonder if you would have had blue eyes too, or deep brown like Caroline's.  When we finished, I took a shell from the beach at Fort Stark and placed it in the vase that holds the shells from Appledore Island.  Hope you know that you are always on my mind, particularly when we celebrate our family.  Love you my sweet boy.
