Happy Birthday Wyatt!

4 years ago today I looked into those cute little eyes and instantly fell in love with one of my everythings. Little did I know I would have to give him back 5 1/2 short months later. My arms continue to ache wanting so badly to hold him again. It's hard to even describe the feeling.

Today we will be celebrating those amazing 5 1/2 months we had with our little boy. We will celebrate his life and the life we look forward to having with him someday. We have no regrets with the time we had with him. He was spoiled rotten and loved more than anything in this world. Because of that our loss was that much more intense and hard. We miss him and love him. We know we will have him again. I'm sure sometime today or this week we will watch this and remember those months with him. So grateful we have this to remember him by.

Yesterday a huge yellow butterfly flew around our backyard. Haven't seen one of those in months. I know Wyatt was letting me know how much he loves me and that he is very aware of these hard days. So grateful for the tender mercies that I continue to receive.

I know I probably post these same pictures each year but we cherish them like we do all the pictures we have of him. It brings back that wonderful day 4 years ago. One of the happiest days of our life's.

Happy Birthday Wyatt!! We love you and we miss you. Look forward to watching you blow out 4 candles someday. Until then we will continue to devote our lives to those things we know are most important so we can be a forever family.

The proudest big brother in the world!

I look at these pictures and marvel at how much the kids have grown. This WAS one of the happiest days of our families life.

Wyatt's 2nd mom. And she was a great one too!

Big excited to have someone to play with and show off to.
