You are the most special little boy Mommy and Daddy could have ever asked for! We visited you and decorated your grave with pretty new flowers for your birthday. Daddy found the big green ones 🙂 We talked to you about your new little sister who is coming, but we know you already know her, our sweet boy.
We had so much fun lighting your lanterns with Aunt Rachel, Uncle MJ, and Grandma. We saw the two shooting stars you sent as soon as all the lanterns were in the air! What a beautiful ending for your birthday, to see the dark sky lit up with symbols of our love for you, and a celebration of your life. We miss you so much Linky… We will all be together as a family again soon. Until then, we will keep celebrating you everyday of our lives.
Love you forever,
Mommy and Daddy

Lincoln’s Memory Tree at Grandma and Grandpa’s house
Missing Lincoln so much as we move into these beautiful warm days. I remember how I couldn’t wait for warmer weather, and the cute little outfits I would be buying. I specifically wanted to get him a little pair of swimming trunks with a swim shirt…
We visited the cemetery today, and there were so many people there. There were other people in the baby section as well when we were there, and it was sad to know that they have experienced the same deep pain of saying goodbye that we have… I wanted to give them a hug. It was a gorgeous day and there were so many flowers and flags and sunshine, it was so nice for all the visitors.
We went to my parents house for a cookout; very yummy. It really shows that Lincoln is missing when we have our family get together. We try to do something special to honor his memory, and include him in the festivities. Today we planted an Apple tree on my parents property in the country. It was my dad’s idea, and it was so awesome! We are going to add flowers around the base and something with his name. I’m so happy to have yet another reminder of his impact and sweet memory. I love you Bubby!
