Knitted Hats for Cole

We wanted to do something special in honor of Cole's first birthday and I thought and thought about what I could do that would be special. I came up with the idea to have friends and family donate knitted hats in honor of Cole that I could then donate to the hospital where Cole was born (Aiden, Isabella, and Connor were also born there).

I also collected several cotton hats, which I also donated to the hospital (to the NICU).

Yesterday I finally made my last stop to drop off the hats. I had been waiting on one from a friend that came in over the weekend. In all, I was able to donate 12 knitted hats and about 10 cotton ones in honor of Cole. The woman I was in touch with, Barbara, was the sweetest woman and when I thanked her for letting me do this, she got choked up and told me that it was me who should be thanked. I genuinely think it was me who got the most out of it. To know that I was able to do something small to honor my precious boy and to know that 22 babies will get to wear the beautiful hats gives me such immense joy. I have no words to describe my gratitude to you all for donating hats. You are so amazing!!

I'm already trying to think of what I can do next year in honor of his second birthday!
