Happy 8th Birthday Sweet Emmie-Rose

It is hard to believe today you would have been 8 years old.

 

The day you were born was a Super Special Day....You were born on My Cousin, Shannon's 
Birthday! We were so Happy to see You! You were so small and Oh so Beautiful! Yet, We were so 
scared not knowing what the next minutes, hours, days, and months would be like. The NicU Team
took you and got you all set up in your "little house" and then We were able to see you. You were 
so teeny tiny, Your hand was so small, Daddy's Wedding Ring fit on your wrist. Mommy and Daddy had never seen just a tiny person before, You were so fragile. We were so scared every step of the way but We loved spending as much time with you as We could. Daddy took Pictures everyday.We have pictures of YOU everyday you were on this Earth and We Cherish them Always! You are Surely Missed every day Baby Girl.

Happy Birthday Sweet Emmie-Rose

Happy Birthday to You!
Happy Birthday to You!
Happy Birthday Sweet Emmie-Rose!
Happy Birthday to YOU!!! :)

As Your Brother would sing to you.....

Happy Birthday to You!
You live in a Zoo!
You look like a Monkey!
And You act like one too!! 

As you can see....Your brother, B-Boy is a silly and handsome guy...Your Sissy, M-Girl is adorable and a sweetie....and Your Big Sissy, Z-Girl is beautiful as ever and growing up way too fast. Though they didn't get to see you as much as Mommy and Daddy did, they wish they could have and they miss you terribly. We have "good days" and We have "not so good days", wishing You were here with Us.  

We wish you a Very Happy Birthday in Heaven Sweet Baby Girl! You are FOREVER in Our Hearts and Minds!

7 Years Ago Today

Emmie-Rose
Seven Years ago today you were taken from Our Lives.  You fought with your whole heart and were so alert until your last breathe. You were so strong and loving. You lived for 66 days through it all. We loved holding you tight and cuddling with you. Daddy would take pictures of you everyday.....you grew double your birth size and were so alert, it was wonderful to see. The day We got the awful news that you were super sick and you may not get better, was the day Our hearts broke. You were thriving and doing well (ups and downs to be expected) but some things  happened that We couldn't stop. All We can say is God had a reason and needed you more in Heaven than on Earth with Us. We miss you every day, think of you always, and wish you were here all the time with Us. Z-Girl, M-Girl and B-Boy have gotten so big from when you were in the hospital, We can't believe it.
Daddy and I wish you were here always and forever! We miss you! Z-Girl, M-Girl, and B-Boy talk about you and miss you tons! They will always wonder "what would have been". It breaks Our hearts to see them suffer like this. We do the best We can to help them through everyday without you hear. We hope you are having an Awesome time with Nana and your other siblings and family. 
We will never forget you Emmie-Rose! 
You are Forever in Our Hearts!

Today You would have turned 7

Happy Birthday to Our Sweet Baby Girl....You would have turned 7 today, gone to VBS with M and B. Played Dolls with M-Girl, wrestled with B-Boy, and hung out with Z-Girl doing all the Girly things and snuggled with Mom and Dad before bed! There is not a day that goes by that We don't think of you or what would have been. It breaks My heart that you couldn't be here to do all the crazy things your Sisters and Brother do. They miss you tons and still don't always know how to handle you not being here with Us. Baby Emmie-Rose, You will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN Sweet Angel!!! You are in Our Hearts FOREVER AND ALWAYS BABY GIRL! Run and Play and Enjoy your Day and always remember, Mommy, Daddy, Z-Girl. M-Girl, and B-Boy will ALWAYS LOVE YOU! You are Our Hero!

6 Years Ago Today

6 Years ago today You went away!
The Lord had plans for you in another way!
We cried and held you tight but the Lord said 
"You will see her again another time".
You were so small, so brave, and so strong!
You meant the world to Us all along.
You came to Us a little too soon
and tried to stay with Us so long.
We wish you could have stand with Us,
But We know the Lord had better plans!






We love and miss you so much Baby Girl. Hard to believe it has been 6 years. We think of you night and day and talk about you all the time. We dream about "what would have been" and "what you would be doing now at 6" and it is just hard to believe. You meant the World to Us Baby Girl and always will! You were Our Sunshine, You brightened the World with your Big Heart in such a tiny person. You were the Bravest person Daddy and I had ever met. I know Nana is up there enjoying you to pieces! She and Papa adored you from the second they found out about you! Nana read to you and held you tight. They took care of your Sisters and Brother while Daddy and I were with you. I am so glad that you can be with her and enjoy her like We did. We miss you and her so badly. 

You would be so proud of your Daddy, He got a great job in Hawaii and We are in the "Land of Paradise" as they call it here. We have been here a little while and are trying to figure things out still. The two littles on start school on Monday, and Big Sis started last Monday. Hard to believe they are in 7th, 4th and 3rd this year! We have been to the Ocean a few times and found the Big Mall that Big Sis just loves! 

We have some Awesome News coming soon but We can't say just yet.

We love and miss you to pieces Baby Girl! Wishing you were here with Us in "Paradise", But I know you are in a MUCH BETTER PLACE in Heaven! We can't wait to see you again one day!!

Happy 6th Birthday Sweet Emmie-Rose







Baby Girl, Today you would have turned 6. It is hard to believe it has been that long since you left. You were so strong, sweet, caring and adorable. We went to the Cemetery today and left flowers and a Princess Balloon in Pink of Course! :) We also released 6 Baby Pink Balloons for you to catch! 
Ms. Emmie-Rose, Mom misses you more than you will ever know and think about you all the time. We were so happy when We found out We were having YOU!! :) Shocked when We found out you were coming early. Happy and Sad when We saw your Sweet Face knowing you had a hard/long fight ahead! You fought to the very end! Please know that Mom and Dad fought for you as well! We knew God would take you in HIS Time if that is what HE wanted but We prayed you could stay. I have tried to stay pretty strong for your Sisters and Brother who are growing up way too fast. They miss you too! They talk about you all the time and wonder why you couldn't stay. I bet you were surprised when Nana arrived. I bet she was so happy to see your sweet face! I hope you both are doing great!

Happy Sweet 5th Birthday Baby Girl


Note: Picture from July 15, 2006


Today you would have turned 5. You would have started Kindergarten this year. You would have been swimming in the pool with Z, M and B this Summer. You would have been riding your bike, swinging on the Swings at the park and eating tons of Ice Cream. You would have been at Vacation Bible School with them as well this week. All the "Would Have Beens" just makes Me sad to think about.


Anyways, on a Lighter Note: I know you are having an Awesome time in Heaven!!! I bet you were ecstatic when You saw Nana's Face :) She missed you so much...she would read you Bible Stories at the Hospital all the time, whether she was holding you reading or Papa holding you while she read, or standing by your bed...she was faithful in reading to you always. I am so glad she is with you but We miss her so much as well.


We all miss you Emmie-Rose Girl and
Wish You a Super Sweet 5th Birthday in Heaven!!!

Happy 4th Birthday Baby Girl!!!!!!!!!!


Today, You turn 4 yrs old. I cant believe its been that long since You were born. You were absolutely amazing the second You were born and remained that way your "whole" life. When the Doctor laid you on My tummy, I just couldn't believe how small, fragile and truly beautiful you were. We are so very thankful that We were able to love, hold and adore you for 66 days while You were here on Earth. We know You are in Heaven looking down on Us now, and one day We will see you again. Its super hard though as We miss you soo much and think of you always!! You would have been at Vacation Bible School this week with Z, M and B. having a great time. :) You would have been playing in the water at Splash Park, Swinging at the Park, Eating Ice Cream Cones, riding your tricycle and just having a blast with your Sisters and Brother.
We all miss you dearly and cant wait for the day when We see your Precious Face again!!!!
