What's with the Monkeys?

So, I am sure some of you may be wondering why I have happy little monkeys as my blog background...
Shortly after delivery and after taking all of our little boy in, we began studying the details of him. He was a fuzzy little guy - dark fuzz on his back, arms and even his little ears. He earned the title of "Our Little Monkey". When we finally decided on his marker, we went with a monkey. It was such a struggle finding something that was "just right". (Thank you Dawn for your help).
I was glad to be able to give our son something as special as this...
I'm sure most of you have heard the old wives tale about heartburn and hairy babies. It definitely held true in this case. Our little monkey caused some major heartburn toward the end of my pregnancy. :)


  1. Aweee everytime i see his "stone" I get all teary eyed! We call D our monkey to, but she's no where near as hairy ;) But everytime i call her that I think of you and Caden and say a prayer for you guys! :)


  2. I called my 2nd son little monkey for the same reasons - he was induced 2 weeks early, had all that dark hair on him still, and these long arms and legs... :)

    It's a beautiful stone!

  3. It's going to be BEATUFIUL!!! I can't wait to see his stone all done!
