Happy 2nd Birthday, Landry

I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord. And he worshiped the Lord there. 1 Samuel 1:27

Today I am celebrating Landry, his life, and his legacy. We only had him for 43 hours but the impact he has made on my life will last a lifetime. I love you and miss you more than words can say. Thank you for being my son, our littlest. You are celebrated today and every day.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Landry!! Today I choose to look at all the wonderful things that have come from your precious life even as I would give anything to have you sitting on my lap blowing out two little candles. Today I was reminded at just how much you have blessed my life and the life of so many others. Your legacy is humbling. It seems like just yesterday that I held you in my arms for the first time and I remember gazing in your eyes that were a lot like mine, and thought to myself how perfect and beautiful you were. You still are. I love you and miss you, my littlest.

Today, I hugged Landry's Big Brother and Little Sister a little tighter. Tyler made me face each day after Landry went to Heaven, and Georgia Kate has been our restoring hope. I love how all three of our children have the same features, but I especially see a lot of Landry in Georgia Kate.

Landry you are celebrated today and everyday.

Great post. It is always hard to think of who they would have been but precious to know who they were even if it was only for an instant.
