Today is your 1st Birthday SKYLA, how i wish it were different. We were meant to be having a beautiful party hunny, lots of presents, lots of fun and laughter, lots of babies and friends joining in on your special day. So far all mummy has done is shed tear after tear after tear. I miss you so much. I cant believe its already been 1 year. Its been 4mths since you left us. Thats already been half your life without us. Its not fair.
Yesterday we did a little balloon release for you at the cemetery because nanny, poppy, Aunty Tash and Zaya couldnt make it today. I hope you enjoyed your balloons. We were planning on coming out to see you today at 12pm but Blake has school today, 1st day back after the holidays so we will be coming to see you at about 4pm. Sorry we cant make it sooner. We will be bringing lots more balloons. I bet you and your little friends cant wait for more balloons. They are so much fun. Also some friends and family that couldnt make it have done there own balloon release just for you. I told them to take photos so mummy will put them up as i get them. You will love them. I hope that your friends and family have thrown you a big party in heaven my darling. I just wish we were there with you. I just want to hold you and kiss your beautiful face again. We are so sad without you. As i type this i can hardly see the computer through all mummys tears. Well i hope you have a good birthday today darling, im sure you will have lots of fun with your friends and i cant wait to see you when we get there. We love you baby girl. We miss you so much.

Happy 1st Birthday
We wish we could see your beautiful face
We wish you were here today
We would laugh, play and sing Happy Birthday
Tearing the wrapping paper off your toys
playing with all the girls and boys
Just learning to walk, we'd see
But all these things aren't meant to be
You're spending your birthday in heaven above
So, all we can do is send our love
Release some balloons, take flowers to your grave
To celebrate your birth and the life they couldn't save
Try and try as they may
You're not with us today
We hope heaven throws a party so grand
And helps us all to understand
Today as we recall your birth, we smile
And be happy you were with us for a while
A life short-lived, gone too soon
We sing "Happy Birthday" as we send a balloon
We send it up and far away
In hopes it reaches you today
For with it we send a wish with love
Have a Happy Birthday In Heaven Above...
