Happy Birthday Sydney

Yesterday was Sydney's birthday. I can't believe that she would have been 2 years old. I wonder what she would have been like. What she would have looked like. Life would have been so different had she lived.

Andrew took the day off so we could spend it together. While it was not exactly what we had anticipated (complete with a flat tire and then getting stranded on the side of the road and having to have the Jeep towed to AJ's) we still had a good day. We went by the cemetery and put a pinwheel at the grave and spent some time thinking about Sydney. I feel like I have really healed a lot in the past year. While I still miss her, I don't feel the sharp pain as much any more. Instead, when I think of Sydney, I can enjoy her memory. I think having Austin has done a great deal to help my healing process. I am no longer a Mom with empty arms. We are continually moving on with our lives, but we will never stop missing Sydney or forget her.

We will always love you Sydney! Happy Birthday!

I'm leaving virtual flowers here. So thankful for the memory of her and for her light in Austin's eyes.

We will all always wonder what Sydney would have grown up to be. I guess that is one of the hardest things to deal with. I know she would have been a pure joy to have gotten to know her.
you are so right-she will never be forgotten

I felt the same feelings after our Ladybug was born. She didn't make me miss Susie any less, but it hurt less. I still have moments though, and it's been over 4 years.

Happy Birthday, Sydney.
