This box is something we decided to put together to keep all the things we hold precious in remembrance of Thomas.
His scans, hand & footprints, hospital tag, poetry, the words that were read out at his service,
his favourite book and all our memories.
Somewhere we can put our thoughts and special things for him over the years.
We both felt your energy as you moved and hiccuped within Mummy's belly. If only you could have felt our love for you.
We will always love you and remember your love of stories and cheesecake - if only we had had the chance to hold you. We loved you a whole lifetime's worth.

Your movements inside Mummy - so energetic and responsive, making her belly move in bumps and waves, she used to watch it for hours, intrigued and in awe, wondering what you looked like - who was there?, whose eyes, mouth, nose did you have?

You were particularly active at night when Mummy lay down in bed. She would pull the covers back and laugh at the shapes you made in her belly - Daddy used to get distracted by the TV and he would miss some of your kicks and bumps and this used to really frustrate Mummy! You had and have become a part of our family and had established your own small personality even before you were born. There was and still is so much love for you here. There will always be.

Mummy felt you kick when she was in her 16th week of pregnancy - she bent over and you kicked her in the ribs! What an overwhelming feeling of excitement and awe when she felt you move. You once kicked daddy in the head when he lay it on Mummy's stomach to see if he could hear your heart beating.
There was a song you seemed to like - funnily enough very much the same musical taste as your Daddy, we discovered that when it was played you would shuffle over to the side of Mummies belly that was nearest to the speaker! This made us laugh!
Mummy used to have conversations with you on the bus every morning on the way to work - She would tap her belly and you would tap and kick back in reply. Whenever she leant up against the wall at work to check the bowling lanes you would thump her - you didn't think much of getting squashed!

LIKES

Cheesecake, 'Guess How Much I Love You', Orange Ice-lollies, Chocolate, 'Indian Flute'

DISLIKES

Loud noises - you would somersault inside me whenever someone was playing 'Kick & Kick' in 'Powerbowl'. The Pneumatic drill in the street gave you a real fright.

We really appreciate you visiting Thomas's website.
We like to know who has taken the time to visit our precious little boy and would like to invite you to leave a message in Thomas's guestbook.
