My little rainbow

Dear Elliot,
I was never a huge fan of the term 'rainbow baby.' It's not that I minded it, or disliked it, I just felt kind of stupid using it myself.

But now...I just can't think of a better representation of what you mean to me. My rainbow after the storm. The light of my light. A reminder that things always get better.

A blog reader named Liz and her mom sent us the most amazing sweater right around the time you were born. Not only is it rainbow-colored, the buttons have little trees on them in honor of your big sister Stevie. I am obsessed with it.

People who don't know us see you in it and say things like, "oh how cute! A little amazing technicolored dreamcoat!" or just "that sweater rocks." And it does, but it is so much more than that. Not only to I love that it's the perfect sweater for my sweet little rainbow baby, I love that it was made with love by someone who knows about both of my babies. Liz (and Liz's Mum!)--thank you so very much for such a special and thoughtful gift. I can't tell you how much it means to me.

I love you so much, baby boy. You have brought so much joy and pure happiness into my life with those chubby little cheeks and those big blue eyes.

Just lovely. I've had similar feelings about the term, but rainbows is just what they are.

Man, that boy is so cute. I love the rainbow sweater! I felt silly at first using the term Rainbow Baby, but you're so right, it's a perfect fit for our boys. They are our light. xo

I never have been comfortable with the term 'rainbow baby' either, but this gives it a totally different perspective on it! Too much ADORABLE...made me cry!
