Happy Birthday Baby!

So, I won't dwell on it too much, but this past week was Ethan Scott Nelson's fourth birthday. It was a happy/sad/hard day. I miss my baby, but am so so so grateful for the knowledge I have that he is back with our Heavenly Father (I'm the best mom ever, I already got one to heaven!). I am so excited to raise him in the millennium and have all the joys of motherhood with none of the sorrow. I love you sweetheart and miss you every day, but I know you are doing your work, I will do mine and we'll be together again sooner than I can imagine.

These pictures are in no particular order.

What a sweet post Christine! This is one of the reasons I've been thinking about you all week!! I hope the day went ok for you and your family. It's never easy when a special day like this comes along, but you are right, he is in a better place and you will meet with him again!

Happy Birthday Ethan!

Way to of Christine! Way to make me cry! That really was one of the sweetest posts I have read for a long long long time.

Isn't the gospel great! It really can bring so much peace and comfort to us.

I'll have to call you and tell you about my emotional evening. I need to vent!

Hey Christi and Scott! You are right about being the best mom ever. Well, of the best because your mom is right there with you. Thank you for sharing those beautiful pictures of Ethan. He is a perfect blend of you and Scott. You have so much to proud of and you are so right that you will one day be with him again. Send him hugs and kisses any time you want to. God will make sure he gets them. LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
