Capture Your Grief 2013-Day 6

CAPTURE YOUR GRIEF 2013 Photography Project 
Day 6: Traditions
October 6, 2013 ♥

Day 3. Tradition: Do you have any traditions? Do you do anything meaningful on special dates for your baby?

Throughout the year, I like to do special things for Lily. I try to do something in her honor and memory around her birthday, on Bereaved Mother's Day, Mother's Day, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, and around Christmas (among other days). 

On her birthday each year, we have red-velvet cake in her honor (red-velvet was what I had at my Valentine's-themed baby shower). I light candles, have balloon releases, write Lily's name in the sand, make or buy a new ornament for her each Christmas, among other things. 

This is the beautiful red-velvet cake that a dear friend of mine made for Lily's birthday this year.
