Sweet Sawyer

I miss you every single day but today I miss you extra.  Today eight years ago you were born.  It is (or should be) your 8th birthday.  How do I get through your 8th birthday without you?  I am not so sure.  I know I did it last year and the year before, so somehow I will get through today as well.

I am wearing purple for World Prematurity Day.  You were full term but all of your siblings were premature so I think you would be okay sharing your special day with them.  You were born on your scheduled C-section date and we could not wait to meet all 8 lbs of sweet wonderful you!

Wherever you are, I hope you know how much you are loved and missed.   As always, I will look for you in my dreams.

  2. Lanie, we too are thinking of Sawyer and all of you today. It’s always unreal for us to realize it’s been another year already. I can certainly think of some wonderful pictures of what Sawyer would have been like as an 8-year-old. He was a beautiful baby boy and will never be forgotten. We love you all. Eden

  7. I remember when I first met that sweet boy. Hard to believe that he would already be 8 years old. Lukas looked the photo and said what a cute kid. He was a beautiful baby boy and I am so happy that you had those photos made. Xx

  8. Oh goodness… thinking about you and your family today. I wish I could have met him.

  10. Dear Lani and Family – You have shown courage and strength and will continue to do so.
    I send my love and warm wishes to the four of you. Cornelia
