No Words

I really have no words for this... except that this is something I never expected to see in my life. It was much harder to look at than I anticipated. Seeing it, squeezed all the air right out of my body. But for such an ugly thing, I will say that it is beautiful...




I can't believe that this is our reality... especially when this was just a year ago...

July 3rd, 2010


 These pictures are totally explain their relationship...


 The Parade
 (Max does NOT like the parade- neither does his Daddy...)

Ellie learning how to sit up!!

We busted out the kiddie pool for the first time...

It does capture her beauty, but understandably wrong.

I love how personalized you made it. She is so deserving. Those pictures are wonderful... she looks like such a little lover.

That is the most beautiful headstone I have ever seen. Heartbreaking and beautiful. I love your kids pictures and outfits from the 4th last year. Hugs to you as always.

o tiff, those pics made me cry. it's not right. it's so unfair. i can't believe where our lives have taken us in just a short yr. you are right, that headstone, though the worst thing in the world, is so incredibly gorgeous. really really breathtaking. it captured her personality perfectly. ♥

You're absolutely right, the most beautiful ugly thing ever.

I love the photo of ellie in the water with daddy, and the photo of max with the shoes on backwards. Super cute.

What a beautiful headstone. They did such a good job, and you designed it perfectly.
I love how you decorate her grave for the different holidays and seasons. I know she loves it!

Although the thought of a headstone being beautiful is heartbreaking, I have to say that Ellie's pictures on this one make it an AMAZING one. It is just a wonderful tribute to her. I love your pictures from last year. I'm so glad you have a wonderful photographic diary of your sweeties. (((HUGS)))

Tiffany,
I hate that your life has come to this, having to put a headstone to mark where your baby by and not having her in your arms. I do have to say that you did a great job with it. It's beautiful. It shows her beautiful smile and personality. Praying for you!!!

Tiff I can't tell you how much this post just broke my heart.

I hate that you have to have a headstone for Eliie.......so freaking unfair. You should have her. But I don't know that I've ever seen a more beautiful tribute in a headstone before. I love how it captures so many cute moments, I love that you can see her little face perfectly, I love the headbands and hats she has on, I love her smile. It's like you know her and how special she was from looking at all pictures.

Thinking of you always my friend ♥♥♥♥♥

(((hugs)))

This is one of the ugliest beautiful things I have ever seen. I am so sorry, that Ellie is not here, but her headstone captures her sweet personality.
I love the pictures of Ellie, I love her hat!!! I also chuckled at the picture of Max with shoes on backwards :)
Thinking of you, sweetheart. Can't wait to see you this weekend! ((hugs))

Ellie is a beautiful, purely and perfectly gorgeous child. And that headstone is the most beautiful and heart wrenching thing I've ever seen. You did a lovely tribute to your precious baby girl. My heart aches for you and your husband. I am so sorry for your loss. I found your blog through Kellie Staats' blog, and I just wish I had the words to convey how badly I wish neither one of you had to go through this. You sound like a strong woman, and a truly amazing mother. My thoughts are with you.
