Happy 4 month birthday, baby girl! As you celebrate your 4th month in heaven, we just want you to know that you have not been forgotten, and you never will be. You will continue to live on in our hearts. We've had a busy month filled with good times and sad times missing you. We've accomplished a lot of the fun fall traditions we have come to love doing with your brothers, and you were always with us in our hearts during each and every memory. No, it isn't the same to us, but it is the best we can do under the circumstances. We know you are enjoying every day in your heavenly home as you watch over us all. We just love you so much, and in our weakness, we do long to have you here with us. We are very thankful to have one another to help us through our saddest moments, and we know God is helping us too.
So if you were here today, you may look like:
|Big Brother Evan ~ Yes, you may even be sucking your thumb like Evan!|
|Big Brother Brody ~ And if you were like this chunky monkey, you would weigh close to 16 lbs. already!|
|Daddy had candles lit for you when Mommy got home from work. He's such a wonderful daddy!|
|Evan says the 3 candles represent him, Brody, and Mattie.|
|My sweet blog friend, Lauren, honored Mattie and other lost babies with a special balloon release. Hopefully, we can plan to do something next year to help honor all of our lost babies!|
|I got to finish my birthday, Mattie, anniversary present with charms for Evan (the little boy), Brody (the little teddy bear), and Mattie (with her name and birth year on it).|
And as tradition, if you were with us this month, you may have worn the following little outfits on our special outings:
|I just loved how soft and snuggly it was, and these adorable little bunnies sealed the deal!|
|This little pumpkin dress would definitely have been the perfect option for our trip to the pumpkin patch!|
|And this little pumpkin shirt would have been great with your first pair of blue jeans!|
|Of course, we would have enjoyed dressing you up for Halloween with your brothers. Since they have insisted on being a cop and escaped convict, we think you would have been an adorable little bunny rabbit.|
We love you to the moon and back, little princess! May you have a wonderful 4 month birthday in heaven!
Mommy, Daddy, and big brothers
