Hi Moms -

I wanted to share this with everyone because I am so excited! We FINALLY planted a tree in memory of Noah in our backyard! It took us a long time to find the perfect one and both Nate and I feel this is it.

This one is called "Little Gem Magnolia" and although you can't see any of the flowers in bloom right now, this tree produces what I think are the most gorgeous, cream-colored, BIG flowers I've ever seen. What is also appropriate to me is the name "Little Gem", because although his life was short, Noah WAS a "Little Gem."

In addition, I found a beautiful lawn ornament that I will purchase sometime to put under the tree. It's of a little boy pulling a little girl in a wagon. I think the symbolism fits just perfectly.

Here's a picture of the tree we picked out. I can't wait for the flowers to bloom


Thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggie!

I'm Barb, Mom to Angel on Earth Julia Rose (7*22*08), her twin brother Angel in Heaven Noah (7*22*08), and rainbow baby Sydney Noelle (12*4*09).

*a special 'thank you' to all the blinkie creators for their talents*

Beautiful. I can't wait to see pictures of it in bloom.

It's perfect. My coworkers all bought us a weeping cherry tree to plant in our yard in memory of Evan. It is really pretty in the spring when it blooms. I will have to post pictures of it!!! They also got us a lawn statue of a little boy wearing a baseball hat to go near the tree!!

Barb I think the Little Gem is a perfect memorial tree for Noah and the Lawn ornament sounds perfect too! So glad you and nate finally found it!!!!

That is so beautiful! The only thing I have in remembrance of my Noah is a park bench at the zoo. I would love to have a tree.
