Close to My Heart

written by Katie McMinn June 11, 2016

I don’t know about you, but I love and hate seeing my children getting older. Yes, I know I only have a 19-month-old and a 5-month-old…I’ve got a long way to go. Lol I came across this photo of me pregnant last year with Jax and Liam laying his head on my chest. Liam hardly does that anymore. Can’t keep the kid still in one spot for more than 30 seconds these days.

With that said I am enjoying this cuddle time with Jax. Though it is getting more and more difficult to hold him. He is a total wiggle worm! I have really struggled after this 2nd pregnancy with handling my emotions. I’m telling ya, I’m a big old cry baby. Looking at these photos makes my heart flutter a bit.

In order to help me deal with my boys growing older I had this idea for a necklace. I wanted something that would hang close to my heart, the way they both use to lay there. I came across this beautiful name necklace by Jenny Present. Honestly, every time I wear this necklace I think about my boys and am reminded of what it felt like when their tiny heads used to rest there. I know, as I watch them grow even older, I will appreciate having this necklace and appreciate how it reminds me of the most precious time in my life.
