- Wedding: October 2014 - Grandma's Oak Tree
I’m a little excited today because my best friend of 15 years/first cousin will be here in less than a week from Maryland to be the Matron of Honor in my October 4th wedding!!! Last year, on October 8th, she had the most beautiful precious little boy I’ve ever seen! We almost shared a birthday (October 7th – I’ll be on my honeymoon on my birthday!) We’ve been the absolute best of friends since our early teens and she asked me to be his God Mother. So not only is this precious little boy my second cousin, he’s my God Son.
She moved to Maryland five years ago and they try to come home at least once a year if not two or three times. I got to see her at 7 months preggo and then a few months after Logan was born. It hit me yesterday that Im missing out on all the “Biggies.” Of course there are numerous texts, pictures and videos, he’s just not going to know me as he would people he sees on a daily basis, at least for a another year or two. They talk about me all the time to him, and tell him stories about me, and me and his mama together.
They’ll be back home by his first birthday and even though I get to spend an entire week with them right before he turns one, I’m still sad that I’ll miss his birthday.
I want to get hims something really special. He of course doesn’t understand the concept of getting gifts. I don’t want to get him all the cute outfits, or toys, or books that everyone else may get him. I want to do something that meaningful, something that he can look back on years from now, and he’ll know just how much I love him, and want to share the same kind of bond that I share with his mother.
Does anyone have any ideas of gestures/physical item that will reflect what I’m feeling or what I’m trying to convey? Thank you in advance 🙂
