Brendan's Birthday

Yesterday was Brendan's first birthday.

Jeff and I celebrated by going out to dinner. Dylan got all dressed up, and we went to O'Charleys.

 We set a place for Brendan, and we even gave him his own roll. (Mommy ate it)

 The hat and button are the decor that we used for Brendan's 3 month birthday. I figured it was fitting to have them for his year birthday as well. :)

The three of us at the restaurant. Sorry Brendan, Dylan slept the whole time, but please know that he loves his big brother! 

He loves being a little brother! Dylan wore this shirt for this occasion. I think we even have a little smile there.

Yesterday was tough, but Jeff and I have some great memories with Brendan. I remember his birthday very well. It was the hardest day of my life. 

It started out as the best day, and ended up being the beginning of the hardest trial that God has ever given me.

I still can't believe that I had a son a year ago, that he passed away, and that he has a little brother.

It is amazing what has happened in this year. God has taught me so much.

And the fact that Jeff hasn't left me is amazing as well. Seriously the man needs a medal.

Happy Birthday Brendan! Daddy and I will never forget you. I can't wait to tell Dylan all about you.

I love you. Make sure that you share your leftover cake. A little frosting goes a long way.
