For a while now, I've been planning on getting a piece of jewelry to remember Naomi by. I don't even remember when I started thinking about it, as it's a somewhat common thing to do. I figured after she was born, I would pick something out that included her birth stone. Again, that's a typical way of doing things.
Over a week ago, the thought suddenly crossed my mind that anything I choose after she's been here and gone might not end up feeling so special in the long-run. Why not buy something now that I can wear while pregnant with her, use in special photos with her, and then continue wearing with those memories attached? I told my husband that I wanted to pick something out soon. His response was, "Uh, can you wait a few days?"
Sorry if you feel like your surprise was ruined, my love. Try to take it as further confirmation that you had a great idea. :)
*I've now shown the necklace to some people, and they all said they expected it to be gold based on this picture. It's actually silver!
