Sami's celebration part two

Yesterday, we decided to go take some flowers to the babies at the baby land at the cemetery like we did after her service last year. It's bittersweet but it makes me smile. A lady was there and she came up to me and told me "I am not sure why you are doing this but I think it's a great, thank you" she had tears in her eyes. I told her it was in honor of my daughter, I guess she was there to see her parents and a brother who only lived one day. I guess I had already put some flowers at his sight by the time she got there. I think I am going to keep this tradition going.
Julian has fun doing that, he was cleaning of the plaques up too. He released his last balloon for his sister because on Saturday he wasn't ready to let go of his smiley face balloon but once we were there he wanted and let it go, he said Happy Birthday to her again and again. It broke my heart but I love that he loves her so darn much. He was hugging and kissing her so much.

When we got there no flowers were in sight

I think we did an ok job of adding some color

What a beautiful thing you did by taking flowers to the other babies at the cemetary. I know you lifted up those mommies and daddies spirits who saw a flower there. If you don't mind, that sounds like something I could do here. Noah isn't buried at the cemetary but rather we chose to cremate him. However, I have longed for quite some time to just go and be with the other babies, taking Noah with me, and to sit quietly among them.

Sami's birthday was beautiful!

That was such a nice gesture. I am sure when the parents came by they were touched to see this.
