Sophie, a portrait by brother Bailey.
We finally got the calligraphy brush that we had made for Sophie's hair. They said it would take about 6 to 8 weeks, but it actually ended up taking three months. Oh well, we got it and it is fine so really no complaints here. This is the hair from Sophie's first haircut and while we didn't have one made for Bailey, I do have a lock of hair from his first haircut kept in a circle box engraved with his name and birth date.
I also have a piece of Sophie's umbilical cord but since Bailey was born in the States and that option was not available, he missed out on that one too. Just wondering, foreign moms, if your child(ren) were born in Japan did you keep the umbilical cord? How about making the calligraphy brush from the fist hair cut? Any other keepsakes that you have of your children?
