He Celebrated 20+ Earthly Birthdays...

Every Monday or 14th of his life here with us, we had some kind of birthday recognition for Jacob. We knew he wasn't made to have very many years so we celebrated his weeks and months with parties.....some of the weekly (every Monday) and monthly (every 14th) celebration videos are on the side bar but here are some pictures of him on those celebration days or days that we just celebrated. Towards the end, days were difficult for Jacob so our celebrations were a little less glitzy, but he was still with us and we still celebrated....as we pleaded with him to hang in there! But anyways....enjoy seeing how big he got and how we just enjoyed our sweet boy on his "birthdays".

"We miss celebrating with you sweet boy! We will do our best today here.....have a great day with your Creator and all your other sweet friends He has called home. Oh, how we miss you. Your light will never blow out here. We love you sweet boy and miss you. Love, Mama, Daddy, Joshua, Jonathan & all your other earthly family and friends"

I love reading this! And seeing the pics again. He was so very tiny and darling. It's so nice to see so many pics of him just being held and loved on! I'm so glad you had him, and so glad you enjoyed celebrating with him!
Happy Birthday Jacob!

You don't know me, but I happened to stumble across your blog today...read the date of your beautiful son's b-day realizing today was that day...Jan 14th. I don't know how I came across this on that exact day other than your beautiful son and our Lord sent me to this site? What a beautiful family you have. I pray that you are finding comfort and peace today. I will add you to my prayer list. May God Bless you and may you feel HIS love for you and Jacob's presence in everything you do. Take care.

I haven't commented before. But I just have to say that you took so many amazing pictures of Jacob and each one is such a celebration of his life. I love the one of you and him nose to nose, and the one on St. Patrick's Day, and the one of him holding the American flag...ohh each picture is so special and captures how much he was loved!
Thank you for sharing these pictures. What a beautiful boy!

Sweet little Jacob was so loved and cherished.

Karen, your three boys have the most beautiful eyes. Windows to the soul, indeed.

Thank you for posting these precious photos of your little prince. Brought back so many memories for all of us out here. I can only imagine how they touch your heart.

Prayers for all of you as you celebrate this difficult anniversary. May God continue to hold you firmly in the palm of his hand.

Love,
Kathy
