We explained to him that these were from his Great Grandma [by showing him a picture of her with him], and that she loves him very much.
I’m not sure how much he understood, but to this day if you ask him who those dogs are from, he’ll say, “Great Grandma!!” We’re going on 4 months now, and he still says this.
I hope that somehow he’s able to remember his Great Grandma.
I know this meant a lot to Jared. For Lincoln to have something special from her. For now, we will continue to talk about her with Lincoln, and let him know how much she adored him. And he can snuggle up with “Hugs” & “Kisses.”
