Celebrating Levi's 1st Angelversary

The past two days have been sweet, but also very painful.  I guess that is the definition of 'bittersweet.'  Last year, our son, Levi Matthew, was born at 11:46 pm on June 28th, and passed away at 1:05 am on June 29th.  In his brief time with us we were able to cover him in kisses and snuggles, and he only knew of our love.  He is a precious angel and the Lord blessed us greatly by allowing Levi to stay for a short time with us.

I miss him everyday, and so yesterday and today were all about Levi.  We had a small cake last night, with a candle.  We sang happy birthday, and cut a small piece of cake for Levi.  We ate it for him, and I think he would have loved chocolate like his momma!  :0)  Then, today we took some new items out to the cemetery and just spent time talking of our boys (all 3).

I took some time today to look back through all the cards we received after Levi passed away.  We are so blessed to be surrounded by so many who love us, and all our babies so much.  The Lord has been far too kind to our little family.  I also spent time looking at all our pictures from the night Levi came to us, as well as the following days.  He was so beautiful, and perfect.  I cannot stop staring at his sweet little face.  He was the exact replica of his daddy, and every time I look at Matt I can see my sweet Levi.  I'm going to post on here a few pics that I don't think we've shared before, but they are so sweet to me.  I am so glad we had the chance to capture these moments.

For Levi:

My sweet love,

Oh, I cannot believe it's been a year that you have been gone.  A lot has happened in the past 12 months.  You are so fresh on my mind, daily, and I miss you greatly.  I love you so much angel boy.  You are such a huge part of our life, and we could never stop loving you or thinking about you.  Pretty soon you are going to be a big brother, and we are so excited.  I wish you could be here to teach Noah all about life with our family.  I feel certain you are watching over him though...I just know that is the kind of big brothers you and Rowan would be.   Oh, my dear boy, I miss you so much.  I love you more than these words can convey, and I cannot wait to meet you again someday.  Hugs and Kisses my little lion.  Momma and daddy love you sooooooo much.  ~momma

Such a lovely little boy. I'm glad you had him for that hour and 19 minutes with him alive! He heard your voices and knew your touch and your smell. Oh how happy he must have been to be cuddled!

Happy birthday sweet lil Levi!
