SHARING

I LOVED these pajamas.  I bought them for Ben when he was 4 years old.  They were much too big for him but I bought them that way purposely so he would have a few years in them.  4 years.  He wore these almost every other day.  They were perfect for him, so comfortable and warm.  And surprisingly enough, they still look brand new.  Ben has a friend in Australia named Noah.  He reminds me SO much of Ben.  We call him the "dark haired Ben". :)  He's just a year older but close to the same size.  We sent Ben's pj's over seas to Noah because we love him and wanted him to have a piece of Ben's life.  Lisa (Noah's mom) sent me this picture today and it made me cry...in a good way.  We hope Noah gets many years out of these pj's.  They are now the "Brotherhood of the Traveling Pajamas", and Noah wears them well!

oh it's so nice to see Ben in them too!! We LOVE the PJs. They are so cosy and warm and fit Noah perfectly. It's lovely seeing him in them and knowing they belonged to Ben. Thank you for sharing a piece of him with us. xxx

Ben is such a sweet boy to share his special things. We've all been touched by your generous hearts and the way you give us all a chance to have a bit of Ben with us....

What a wonderful gift to Noah. I'm sure he is nice and comfy cozy in the pj's that Ben wore. Cute pictures, too.
