Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to Wylder, Happy Birthday to you.
Wylder, we celebrated you today. We had a most dishes birthday cake just like the one you scarfed down at your first birthday, it was so “yum yum”, and I just know why you loved it so much. We let 38 of the most colorful and beautiful balloons go free, one for each month you were here in our arms. Mommy and daddy attached special wishes to the balloons so they could safely get delivered to you. We went down to Phoenix Children’s hospital and visited with some of your friends. They are such Warrior’s too. They loved your books so very much. It made me feel like a small piece of you will be with them forever and always Wylder, it was so special. I was proud of your daddy today. It was his first time back to PCH, and he was so strong. His love for you was oozing out for everyone to feel, he is so proud to be your dad. We got to see your best pal nurse rachel … we already know she is an Angel lovey. We also made sure 100 plumeria flowers went out to sea in Maui Hawaii from us, just for you today … just were you were laid to rest last July little one. Did you see them? We opened lots of sweet treats from your friends and family today too Wylder. They all miss you so much too. We talked about you all day today Wylder. We always talk about you, but today seemed extra special because it is a day we will always celebrate, the first day we saw your sweetest face. We ended today, your day, with a heart and a #4 sparkler. We hope you saw them and loved them very much. We love you very much.

You would be so happy about the number of people who are helping us celebrate you by continuing to share your messages of hope through your new book Wylder. People are so honored to know you buddy, and show there love and support for you and for us everyday. We had so many books donated to sick kiddos in the last couple days we are going to hold an entire seperate event for HOPE KIDS nest month, I hope you are glowing here this news. It means so much to us to think of your books, your sweetest messages with so many caring people. Thank you Wylder for giving us the support system you knew we would need.
You are 4 today Wylder … 4 years old. Have we told you lately that you are our soul mate? Daddy and I feel so blessed to know true love, true unconditional love because of you. Over the last couple of weeks I found myself wondering what you would have wanted for your 4th birthday. What kind of party would you have wanted? GI Joes? Superheroes? Elmo? Truth is, after a lot of thought, I think you would be into giving back. That is the the essence of YOU, no matter your age or location, isn’t it lovey? Helping others, making people smile and sharing your awesome-ness with anyone you come into contact with … well that is YOU. We would have spent your fourth birthday party celebrating YOU, just as we did today. I am sorry Wylder. I am sorry you didn’t get to grow up … but please know what you do everyday is so much bigger. We could not be more proud that you are our son. Thank you for changing our perspectives and allowing us to have so much gratitude for life and for you. Our favorite memories with you are the simple ones, the late night feedings, when you used to smile when you fed and milk would dribbled down your chin and into the creases of your neck, every kiss, every bath, reading books not matter the time of day … there are so many memories. You are our greatest gift. And today, YOUR day, your birthday, they day you came into our lives was the best day of our entire life. We promis to celebrate you today and always … to remember, YOU, the one who makes a difference and the one we love from the bottom of our hearts. All things are possible in the light of love. We will feel you in our hearts forever and will see you in our dreams Wylder. Happy Birthday. Forever and Always, mommy and Daddy.
Happy Birthday Wylder
