I can't belieive it's going to be a year in less than 3 weeks from now. I have no clue what to do for Eric on July 12th. I know we'll go to the cemetery like we've been doing every 2 weeks for the past year. Maybe release ballons, I don't know what else. I also wanted to start a blog about Eric, but just can't find the time/the strenght to do it. Any suggestions? I know this has been asked before but I just been so lost and overwhelmed lately.

Oh sweetie I hate the firsts. With Marshall, I made no plans. I woke up that day, and needed my Mom. So I drove to her cemetary to see her and leave a rosary. Then I took the girls to the Fort on the way home. And I cried for an hour on the way home while the kids slept.
Jonah's hit me SO much harder. I was paralyzed the whole day, unable to function.
I think we are going to do lantern released on their due dates in August and September.
my thanks to Claire1979 for the awesome siggy!!
I cannot believe it has been almost a year already too!!! It will be a year next month August 17th that Evan went to heaven!
I am planning on doing a 1st birthday party with friends and family with balloon release and candle light cermony! We are gonna have family and friends over for a bbq!!! I will have balloons with flowers seeds and note attached for whoever to find the balloons to plan the seeds!!
I am also putting together a basket filled with baby stuff to deliver to the hospital and to give to the whoever is in the room I delivered evan in to have! This way I feel we are still celebrating him but will give his gifts to another baby to celebrate him!!! We are also going to visit his grave site!!!
I hope these ideas have helped you!!
I will be thinking of you on that difficult day! Please contact me if you feel you need someone to talk too that has been there!
Our plans were dashed when we got hit by a major blizzard. But we bought him a card, released balloons, and went through his memory box in front of the fireplace. It worked out really nicely, making big plans was really too much for me.
Thank you, guys. I'm still thinking about what to do, but I don't think it'll be anything big. I've been so down from the moment this month had started. I'm just having such a hard time I just don't have the strenght to do it. Most likely, dh, our daughter and I will go to the cemetery and then release baloons. It'll just be a quiet day. We won't even mention this to most of our friends and family since they don't even remember now.
