Jade Roper Tolbert is remembering her little boy on the day she would have welcomed him into the world.

On Tuesday, Roper Tolbert began the day by sharing a bouquet of deep yellow roses she got from husband Tanner Tolbert. "Tanner picked me up roses this morning, today was Beau's due date 🥹," she captioned the shot, referring to the baby boy the couple lost in a miscarriage in early August.

The couple and their three children — Reed, 2, and Brooks, 3, and daughter Emerson, 5 — gathered around a small heart-shaped blue and white cake with Beau's name in the center. In the next video, the candle remains lit as she instructs her kids to "think of one warm, happy thought."

Emerson says her happy thought is "to eat the cake," while Reed repeats, "happy thought." Turning to Brooks, she asks, "Do you have a happy thought?"

Smiling, he replies, "I love." The three kids then came together to blow out the candle as the video concluded.

Roper Tolbert announced her miscarriage in an emotional Instagram post in August, writing, "I’ve been struggling with what to write here as I’ve been navigating a miscarriage."

"It felt like all my dreams were coming true to welcome another baby into our lives, to love and to complete our family," she continued. "While our hearts are completely broken and we have been dealing with the deep and complex grief of the loss, we have been blessed to be touched by his soul for his short amount of time. I am forever changed."

Roper Tolbert then explained: "I’m currently experiencing what is called a missed miscarriage, so while his heart has stopped and he has stopped growing (for some time now), my body hasn’t released the pregnancy yet. I am hoping to do this naturally and am trusting in timing and in my body under the care of my provider."

"I’ve been carrying him with so much pride and cherish every moment still left with part of him, but it has also been equally as challenging and devastating," Roper Tolbert went on to write.

She concluded her message with a touching tribute: "So while I hold my belly here, our sweet baby’s body is resting in my womb as his soul soars. We love you with every piece of our hearts, baby Beau❤️."

"Plenty to be thankful for this year. Thankful for their abundant laughs, hugs, energy (yes, even that haha), and love," she wrote.

"I can’t believe I get to be their safe place. Even when the days are hard, my gratitude is what brings me back down to what really matters. Them. ❤️"
