Happy Birthday to your sweet Gracie. What a beautiful way to celebrate her birthday- different that I know you would have liked- beautiful none the less. I have no doubt about those signs. Our angels are wise beyond their years and seem to always know when their parents need a lil' "Hey Mom, Hey Dad". The bond between a parent a child, no matter how short the time on earth, is stronger than any force in nature.

Keepin' ya in my thoughts,

Thank you so much, ladies. It sucks being in this club we can't quit.

I wanted to mention all of the signs I think she sent us today:
- on the way home from breakfast we saw a really fat rainbow! I told my husband that I think she was telling us that she was giving us her blessing to make her a big sister. I took tons of pictures of it.
- We went to Costco later in the afternoon and as we turned the corner into the main aisle, there was this beautiful little girl who looked just like I would have imagined her to look standing in the main aisle, just staring at us. She ran off a few seconds later.
- I looked at the time this posted and it was at 5:27pm, the same time Gracie was born. I totally did not plan it. I have no idea what time zone the forum or even I'm in.
- Hubs was cleaning out his wallet earlier and came across a fortune and the Chinese word on the back was "daughter."

Ramblings of a madwoman? Probably, but it sure helped ease today's pain.

I can't believe it's been a year! How I wish that Gracie was here with you on her birthday- (or maybe that it wasn't her birthday and she'd been born when she should have.) I'll light a candle for Gracie tonight.

Happy Birthday to sweet Gracie! It's beautiful to do something special, but so very hard to not break down. I think that the first birthday is a milestone, also for us BLMs, that deserves to be celebrated. Thinking of you, your husband and especially of your precious Gracie. Sending you hugs.

Happy birthday, Gracie

Husband and I celebrated by getting up super early and driving to the other side of the island to watch the sunrise. After it came up it we drove a to a little turn out along the coast and released a dozen pink and white balloons. Something about watching them all fly away broke us and we stood there crying for a while. I whispered a happy birthday message to her as he was taking pictures and then we went to breakfast. Later I'm going to bake cupcakes in some princess paper cups I found at the party store.

I've been crying quite a bit lately. I thought I had been handling things so well up until a few days ago.. maybe I'm hormonal from AF coming. *sigh* What a sad way to spend what should be such a beautiful day.

Happy birthday, sweet Gracie. How I wish you were here with me and I could give you all of the birthday snuggles you deserve.
