Today is a day of remembrance and mourning. It is suppose to be a day of celebration and maybe one day in the future it will be but this year it is too painful. Too painful to look on this day and be happy because our twins are not here to blow out 3 candles on their cake. To tear in to presents from all of their family and friends, to chase balloons and bubbles and remind every adult there how wonderful the laughter of a child is and the innocence it portrays. It's gone for me today.
I wanted to do a post in remembrance of my sweet babies. A post that reflects back on the first 2 years of their lives on their birthday. They had 2 wonderful birthdays. Both were water party's and we had various water items. Last year, we had a small pool for them to enjoy because they always loved the water so much. The year before, we had little baby pools and boy was it hot that day. Kenadi was not feeling very well that day and ended up having her first, and thankfully her only, febrial seizure.
B&K were so happy and pleasant. I can't imagine what today would be like if they were here. I would guess that they would be helping Gregg make "gits and eggs" for a wonderful Mother's Day breakfast.. :) And I would be waking them up singing "Happy Birthday"
How sad I feel today. How bittersweet today is. It it their birthday and I miss them dearly, but I wonder if it just happened to fall on Mother's Day this year as a reminder to me that I have a wonderful daughter. My sweet December blessing. And inspite of my heartache and pain, she is here and I am her Mother and she needs my care for her and she loves me.
Below are some pics of Brayden and Kenadi from the first 2 wonderful years of their lives.
Happy Birthday my sweet babies in Heaven, Brayden and Kenadi. I love and miss you so much.
