Happy 4th Birthday Keaton!

Today is Keaton’s 4th birthday.  4years is hard to fathom.  He would be considered a little boy by now, learning to be more independent and attending pre-school.  At 4 yrs. of age he would no longer be a toddler and certainly not an infant – but Keaton will always be my “baby”.  In my heart, he will remain my newborn until I cross over that threshold into eternity. 

In heaven, I imagine picking him up as a new infant and living happily-ever-after.  And the beauty of it all is that there won’t ever be an ending.  We’d simply wait for each family member to arrive and have a huge family party/reunion.    

For Keaton’s 3rd birthday last year, we ordered custom-made birthday cakes and made a surprise announcement to our family that Keaton was going to be a big brother. 

Oh how I wish I could close my eyes, blow out the candles and have Keaton with us again.  This year, his little brother, now 4 1/2 months old, is in our arms and with us to celebrate Keaton’s special day….

Dearest Keaton,

Happy Birthday son!  You are 4 years old now and we long to see what you must look like.  Your papa and I miss you so much.  Thank you for watching over your little brother…he arrived safe and sound and looked just like you did when you were born. 

As we celebrate your 4th birthday, please send us lots of hugs and kisses.  We think of you all the time and can just imagine the kind of parties you must have in heaven.  Give everyone up there our love. 

Love you always sweetheart,

Mama, Papa and your baby brother
