Happy Birthday to my little boy

Our little boy Cooper was born at 1:29pm exactly one year ago today.

I was wanting to type this post at that exact moment, then remembered that Brinson has to go for her last Synagis shot today. So, I will be posting now, and then will be putting some pictures up later on in the day. We got to be with Cooper for a few hours before he passed away. I am sorry that Brinson will never get to meet him, but she will definitely know him through all of us.

So far, I've not cried today. Granted, it's only an hour into March 3rd, but hey, for me, that's pretty good. I need to remember him with happiness, and not thru tears of sadness.

Please, I would like everyone who reads this post today OR the other one I'll be putting up later, to leave a comment....anything really. You can even just sign your name. I just want to see lots of comments for THIS day.

Following this picture which I am putting in a corner on Brinson's birthday cake, is the poem I wrote for Cooper. God Bless you all.

COOPER, our angel

There's a bright angel up in Heaven
Whom we love and miss so much
Even though his time on earth was short
There are so many hearts that he did touch.

Our little boy grew his wings
One year ago today.
God called him up to Heaven
and asked him if he would stay.

He looked down at his sister Brinson
Still in their Mommy's womb
He spoke to her in great detail
While in the hospital room.

When he was done,he said
"God, If it will save her life
I will stay here with you."
God replied, "Cooper, you are so very brave
For that's just what you'll do.

You shall be her hero
With this selfless act you have done.
Cooper ,you will be the guardian angel
For your twin sister Brinson.

You will be with her
Every day of her life and with her every breath.
You will eternally watch over her
Until her day of death.

When her death day comes, little Cooper
She won't have to fear
She won't be frightened
Because with open arms, you'll be waiting for her here.

So, until that day dawns,
You shall sit upon her shoulder
You will be there when she laughs
And when she cries, you will hold her.

Mommy and Daddy will miss you
For forever and a day
But they understand what your job is,
and why you have to stay."

It's me.
You know, there are sometimes in life when you come across someone, and you feel like you've known them forever.
I know you know what I mean.
I am thinking of you this day, as always. In amazement of how you do it. In amazement of your support and care for me and my family, too.
I've said this before, but Cooper and Brinson are the luckiest kids to have a mommy like you.

I cannot imagine what you and Ned are going through on this day, but know that both of you and the twins are always in my heart. I wish I could have been there to see him once.

Hey Kids- Sorry I missed you yesterday. My prayers are with you daily. You truly have a angel with Cooper. How lucky Brinson is to have him watching over her. YOu know he is watching over all of you. Your poem was beautiful. How lucky Brinson and Cooper are to have such wonderful loving parents. I wish you all the best, which I could be there for the celebration. I am there in heart and soul. Love you all, can't wait until the day I actually get to hold Brinson. Looking forward to seeing all of you- hopefully sometime this summer. Have a great day tomorrow. God be with you all for such a wonderful event.
Love Mary S.
