Hanging out with Aunt Em and Uncle D....and "Silent for Cohen"

Today our niece and nephew hung out with us...such a good time! They love their new baby cousin so much. We watched Toy Story and played with some of Wyatt's toys. Ha! (Don't worry, he does have some big kid toys too!)
Uncle Mark hanging out....

Our nephew LOVES (and that's an understatement) Toy Story. Wyatt has a few Toy Story toys and Cruz just sets up anywhere, notice the entertainment center. Ha ha! Our niece LOVES to hold baby Wyatt. She is so great with she put him to sleep.
We swam at Maw-Maw's house earlier today so everyone was so tired....

This evening some dear friends from home stopped by. My mom's best friend from high school and her daughter. Marci and I grew up together and both just had babies! It's so crazy how time passes....our babies are only 5 days apart. :) We "swapped" babies in this picture..
Another fun and busy day for us....:)

And to keep you posted...

tomorrow I will not be blogging. Instead I will be participating in this:

What: Moment of Silence for Cohen

When: Thursday July 1st from midnight to 11:59 pm.

How: Bloggers participating will post the Cohen banner (below) or simply post Cohen’s name in large letters on their blog.

Why: July 1st Megan and Brent will be holding Cohen’s memorial service. The moment of silence is an opportunity for Megan’s blog community to stand behind her and support her on this difficult day. Linking up will give Megan a chance to see the support at a glance.

Participating bloggers can Link Up on July 1st at Send Love To Cohen.
I usually try avoid things like this, not because I am trying to be rude or that my heart doesn't break for these people I just try to keep this blog uplifting. PERSONALLY I am not someone who likes to sit and read and cry...with that said...

I have recently experienced the loss of a child. No situation is ever the same and everyone deals with sadness in their own way. I lost a child the day he was born, I held him in my life with never be the same. Though we lost a child God blessed us with his twin brother. There will never be a day that goes by when we don't think about Ryder. Mark and I are firm believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and without him this would be impossible. He is our rock and right now in this time of deep hurt and sadness we are clinging to him.
Please pray for his family tomorrow as I know how hard it is to lay a child to rest. That day was the hardest day of my life but we knew he was no longer in the body we were laying to rest, he was already sitting on Jesus's lap looking down on us.

With all that said tomorrow I will be "silent" for Cohen.
