No words necessary

Update: I’m sensing no one is sure whether or not to laugh about the balloons getting stuck in the tree. Just to clear the air, I burned enough calories laughing over this that I did not feel the least bit guilty when I ate two pieces of birthday cake that day.

She lingered for a moment, caught within time, to wave hello.

Much love to you.

I think Ava played a little giggle on her mom and dad and baby brother.

Your photos are beautiful, i also noted that in photograph number 4 the cloud is in the shape of a love heart.

I love that you remember Ava with a birthday cake to commemorate all she's meant to you.

A beautiful tradition. What a wonderful thing to teach little Nate. You are a great mom to both Ava and Nate.

Absolutely beautiful.

Looks like a really beautiful day!
I'm glad you enjoyed the birthday cake, too! Yum.
You're awesome.


So, what did Nate think of all of that? I mean, I'm sure he didn't understand what it was about, but was he upset about letting the balloons go?

Also, is there any significance to having seven balloons?

That is a great way to share Ava's memory with Nathan.

I didn't realize the balloons were stuck in the tree, but now that you say it I can see what is going on!

I'm so glad you're able to laugh. I like the birthday cake idea. She should be celebrated.

What a sweet daddy for getting the balloon sun stuck.

I think celebrating yearly is so special.

Hey Christi,

Nate is totally infatuated with balloons, but oddly enough, he seemed OK to let them go. I was worried he would cry.

We release seven balloons because Ava was alive for seven hours. It just sort of feels right.

I love this, so special!

Oh Just Beautiful. Bless you all.

What a bright! and beautiful way to remember.

What a wonderful tradition, and I must admitt it makes me feel a bit better that your balloons were caught in a tree because on my way back from picking up Ava's balloons one popped and I felt so bad. Boston loved letting the two remaing go though and I know whe was smiling as she saw all those balloons from everyone raised up to her. I love the comment about how she lingered for a moment. I think she is always watching over you.

Ava's way to make you smile. Very beautiful.

Absolutely beautiful.
