~~Happy Birthday Baby~~

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. Now all we have is memories, and your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake, with which we'll never part. God has you in his keeping, we have you in our hearts.

Sweetest Zariah,

Today is your 2nd birthday and the second one we don't get to spend with you. I know you would be a super big sister, helping your little brother learn how to walk and playing with him. I know you met him when you went to Heaven before he came, but I would rather you be here with him now, as does everyone else.

I bet you would be talking up a storm- probably impossible to shut up just like your mommy, but I would give anything to hear your sweet voice even one time.

Your beautiful brown eyes that told a story and showed all the love you had for us will always be in my mind and your sweet baby smell always alive in my senses.

I often wonder what you would be like. What you would have grown up to be and what you would have looked like. Would it have been more like mommy or daddy?

Would you have had the nappy hair we always joked about or would it have been softer and straighter like Zeke's? Which ever it would have been, I would have loved sitting with you and fixing your hair to make it beautiful.

I know you watch over us with gramma and grampa, and I know you see how much we miss you. But what you can't see is how much we still love you and want to make sure you stay in the hearts of our family.

Dance and be happy today sweetheart. Enjoy your birthday and all the ones to come and know that we are here on earth celebrating with you.
We love you Z.
