July 13, 2012

Braedon's First Birthday. We had cake, we sent off some balloons. We went to the park. We laughed, we cried, we were happy and we were sad. It isn't right to celebrate a birthday for a baby that is missing. It isn't right to not celebrate a birthday for a baby who is missed. I miss him. We all do.

Wish I was complaining about wiping this very dyed icing out of his hair. 
Threw this one in couldn't resist. 
Sleeping through the whole thing. 
Lots of sugar!
The Boys


Even Gizmo wanted to join in. 

Rainbow Colors. 




  1. I love the cake, we did that as well for Jack's first. You and your family are beautiful, Happy Birthday Day Braedon! I love the pics, awsome dog and Max looks like such was a good little brother. ps I am ok -taking a step back from alot of blogging lately, Severus is good and growing nicely. What a beautiful day you had for Braedon xoxoxo

  2. Just wanted to stop in and say thanks for the comment on my blog. And to wish Braedon a Happy 1st Birthday in Heaven. We had cake for Eva for her first birthday. The boys sang and I cried. You're right it's just wrong to have a birthday without the baby but equally wrong to not have a birthday. I understand the dilemna. We'll be having cake every October 15th. We might have cake on August 15th too (Eva's Heaven Day). I guess we'll see when we get there.

  3. Paula, what a beautiful family you are.
    I love these photos, and how you celebrated Braedon on his day.
    Remembering your sweet Braedon always. xx

  4. What beautiful photographs. You've summed it all up in that first paragraph. It isn't right to celebrate and it isn't right NOT to celebrate. And I think that the latter would be worse, not to celebrate a baby who is loved and missed like Braedon.

    I love his cake, that icing is amazing, SO blue!

    You are so beautiful and all your boys so handsome. Makes me ache a little more for your Braedon who might have been there too. Alexzander looks so perfect in his rainbow colours! Is

    Gizmo does look like he wants to join doesn't he?!

    Oh bitter, bittersweet. Celebrating Alexzander and remembering your dear Braedon xo

  5. What a beautiful family you have.

    Missing Braedon with you.
