SEPTEMBER 11 BABY

I have heard
that it can feel like a gyp to have your birthday on a “Holiday”
That the child that shares their Birthday with Christmas often feels short changed…
and such…

Fortunately for Spring and Fall babies…the  Holidays hop around,
Spring Babies
 might have a few Easter Birthdays in their lifetime
or late November babies….  A Thanksgiving Birthday or two…
but that almost makes it more special…
But for my youngest son, born on September 11, 2000

Phoebe and Tate meeting their new baby brother…

and whose FIRST Birthday fell on the

BAD DAY…
His has always been a very extra Ordinary BIRTH day.
ONE
It takes a pretty Special guy…..to know that his birthday is a day
that makes many people sad…
and to know that your day is associated with such atrocities…
and yet, to rise above it all,

to find the JOY that goes on.
HE brings such joy into so many lives…
Coops and his Birthday serve to affirm…
..how LIFE….
…..that force that cannot be stopped…
even when it IS stopped…
PICKS ITSELF RIGHT BACK UP AND
goes on…and on….and on….and on….
Today we celebrate
a VERY important DAY in our family
AND
we honor those families all over the world…
….who were forever changed…11 years ago.

happy birthday cooper ellington devito

WE LOVE YOU!!!
