Journalling reads: We always celebrated your birth on your birthday and mourned your loss on your anniversary. With the two dates being just 3 months and 4 days apart it was hard for us to ever find the chance to celebrate your life. Words can never begin to describe how grateful we are that we had you in our life even for the short while that we did. One day we were sitting together on the bed watching an episode of Handy Manny, they were talking about a day called Dia De Los Muertos, something I had never even heard of. A quick google search and look at Wikipaedia and I found what I was looking for "In most regions of Mexico, 1st November honors children and infants, dead adults are honored on November 2. This is indicated by generally referring to November 1 as DIa de Los Inocentes (Day of the Innocents) but also as Dia de Los Angelitos ("Day of the Little Angels"). Last year (2009) we decided that we were going to celebrate all three of our angel babies on 1st November. We stayed in a hotel, I bought a gift for each of the boys from our angels and we took a trip on the London Eye, so it felt like we were a little bit closer to them for a while.
