Today is Christian's Birthday...

Christian Hartley Wilson was born a year ago today, he weighed 7lbs. 9 oz. and was absolutely perfect!!!  We remember today as a very happy day when he entered our family, and blessed us with his sweet, loving spirit.  He had "old-soul" eyes...we recognized that pretty early on...and we found out, he was a very patient little guy as well.




the spirit in our home while he was with us, really was different.  It is hard to describe, but it was very sweet and peaceful, even when things got stressful with his being in the hospital etc.

Today our little family is one member short, but we feel his spirit with us.  We visited his memorial marker today, with new flowers, a birthday balloon, and pinwheels to make it festive:)  

We also ate cupcakes (thanks Doti for making them!) in honor of his first birthday.
We are very thankful that Christian came to our family, if just for a short time on Earth. We know that we will be together with him again.

Happy Birthday, we love you sweet Christian...and we miss you very much.

Happy birthday to a sweet baby. I remember when you were in the hospital running tests to find out why he was loosing weight. I was so stressed and worried. I came over to visit when you got home. I expected to find you frazzled and stressed, but you weren't. You were calm and relaxed. I was so surprised. I got to snuggle little Christian and I got to soak up some of that calm,peaceful spirit that he has. I felt that amazing spirit that he brought into your home. I fell blessed to have known him.
