Little Sister

1:29pm came today and we were in the car driving home from B's last Synagis shot (yay). Brinson, who had been quiet most of the drive home, started to babble....and babble loudly. I bet she talked for about 2-3 mins straight. My mom and I were just speechless. Then, later in the day, at the same moment that Cooper passed, she started again. Now, she did some chatting in between, but was definitely more prounced at that time.
Also, as most of you know, Brinson is a happy baby. However, today, she laughed more than I've ever heard her before. No, I didn't get any videos. I just enjoyed her. I loved on her more than usual. The only time she was unhappy was when she got the shots. I think I cried more than she did. I remember her looking into my face as I was holding her, and she saw me crying, and stuck her lip out. I knew then, that I had to be happy. ..for her. So, I did have some tears today, but not too many. I have the most precious gift, I just wish so much that she would've gotten to meet Cooper.
Thank you to all of you who have commented on my last post. Thank you for the words of encouragement, love,caring, and support. Thank you for the compliments on the poem, it was one of the hardest I've ever written. I felt an enormous pressure to make Cooper proud...and I think he's pretty pleased...or at least I like to think so. :) And lastly, thank you again for taking this journey with us.
Here are some pictures of Brinson and Cooper together.

Lisa and Ned--Love the poem from earlier today. I cried beginning from yesterdays post--no one should have to endure the pain of loosing a child. Cooper is keeping a close watch on Brinson--just wait until she starts dating (which is at 30--right?)! We need to get our Brinson has been too long!!

So sorry for your loss 1 year ago today. May God comfort you as you remember.

It is such a joy to see Brinson thriving in such an obviously loving home!

Don't fret too much over your babies not "meeting"...
remember, they were together before they even met you and Ned.
What a special bond !:)!
Cooper will always be with Brin, it is the rest of the world who is missing out, but something tells me Brin will make enough "noise" for both of them.
love ya,
