For you little guy

I'm popping the same post on both my blogs tonight as I have DT projects scheduled for tomorrow.

This week is going to be a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me. Tomorrow is my first sons fourth birthday, or would be if he were still here. Flynn died when he was just two days old following complications at birth. I carried him for 42 weeks and he was perfect, saying goodbye was the hardest thing in the world. Wednesday will be his angelversary and then on Thursday we have Blake's first birthday to celebrate. So a week of tears, sadness and absolute joy too. Forgive me if I don't get around to your blog this week.

We always celebrate Flynn's birthday as it keeps him with us, here's the card I've made from me and my hubby:

I love the sentiment on the little star 'Twinkle, twinkle little you know how loved you are?' and the sentiment on the side 'wishing you love and laughter forever after'. Both perfect for my little guy. The next card is from Flynn's two little brothers Zac and Blake. Now this doesn't use Stampin' Up! supplies but is a digi image drawn by a very special friend, just for me. Flynn is represented by the butterfly.

We are not the first parents to have to say goodbye to our baby and sadly we won't be the last. We have been incredibly lucky to go on to have Zac and Blake, but Flynn will forever in our hearts.
