Happy 20m Birthday, Nicholas

Thursday, October 1, 2009

20 months. We are getting so close to 2 years. I cant even think of that...

Happy Birthday, my sweet boy. What a big brother you are! Daddy and I know that you are watching over all of your siblings and keeping a good eye on them. We are so proud of you.

We miss you, dear Nicholas. We miss you so much. It's so hard here without you. Not a day goes by that you arent on our minds and in our hearts. We wake up and look at the picture of you, holding your hands, a small smile on your face... We look through your box at all the treasures and reminders we have of you. We stroke your blanket and kiss your box. We miss you. We love you.

The weather is turning colder... Soon, it will be winter and then February 1st and you will be 2 years old. 2 years since you brightened our world with your birth; 2 years since you left it behind... 2 long years that have passed so quickly.

Happy Birthday, my love. As we've done for the last 20 months and will do for the next 20 years... 20 decades if we have them... we will enjoy your special dinner tonight and celebrate your love and strength and warmth. We will remember you with joy in our hearts and tears in our eyes.

We love you. So very much. Always.

Although my main wish is that your sweet boy was here with you. . .I'm so touched and, to be honest, slightly jealous of the special dinners you have for your little ones. I think its a great, tangible way to keep their memory near, and I find myself sometimes wishing for something like that through which to connect to my babies.

Happy birthday Nicholas.
