Remembering our angel Cooper

Today would have been Cooper's 2nd birthday. I have thought all day about him and about what I would write today. I have cried countless times throughout the morning and early afternoon, and just really immersed myself in outside activities. I'd like to share a couple of poems, some pics, and even a couple videos. We were all busy today, intentionally. It just feels like yesterday that we lost him, even though I know it's been two years. I wonder if it ever gets any better??
I bought something special for myself today in memory of him. When I get it, I'll post pics.

My Forever Child

You are a Precious Child
Created out of love, a blessing from above.
I've adored you from the start,
and your little footprints touched my heart.
A single teardrop represents the millions I have cried
My life never the same since you died.
I wish you could have stayed longer with me,
I'd watch you grow into all you could be.
Although we are apart,
You are Always in My Heart.
I dream of a joyful time when we will be reunited once again.
Thoughts of you make me smile.
You will always be My Forever Child™

We started the day going out to eat for breakfast.

Meme and Mommy

"C'mon B, make your silly this."

Mommy and Brinson

"No Daddy, I want to silly face."

She is such a girly girl...look at that pinky!

"Ok fine....(cue eye roll)"

Singing for the camera

We also planted flowers...the angel is on our front deck, I bought it last year.

This video will make you cry. So precious.

Thinking of You with Love

We thought of you with love today,
but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
and days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
we often speak your name.
All we have are memories,
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
with which we will never part.
God has you in His keeping,
we have you in our hearts.
A million times we`ve wanted you.
A million times we cried.
If love could only have saved you,
you never would have died.
It broke our hearts to lose you.
But you didn`t go alone.
For a part of us went with you...
the day God called you Home.
