We celebrated Jamie's 1st birthday by giving her pretty flowers at her grave, thinking about her and missing her while at the beach in Niantic, eating a nice seafood lunch, singing happy birthday to her at her grave and before blowing out the one candle on the birthday cake Daddy and I made, and, of course, eating the yummy cake. It was a good day as a family.
We've been to the butterfly garden, Baby Wings, down the road from us a few times lately, and today we helped release some butterflies. The garden was created by a nurse at the hospital where Jamie and I were born who wanted to honor and remember babies like Jamie who died and others who never had a chance to be born. We really like that it is just a mile down the road from us. My favorite thing to do there is play hide and seek among the rows of rhododendrons and otherwise run up and down the rows.
