Replacement birthday balloon.
On the second day Milan brought her birthday balloon around, the van doors were opened and the wind blew it out up into the sky. She had the saddest little face as she reached for it and watched it blow away. James picked her up and held her as she cried. A young couple came up to us and told us that they saw the whole thing, then wished us luck for the next few hours.

We felt torn as to what to do. We didn't want to spoil her but we also knew that she tried so hard to take care of her balloon. In the end, we figured she's so young. Why not fix as many wrongs as we can while we still can? So we searched for the right store and bought her another. She got to pick this one out herself. Now she tells us the story of her balloon that flew away and happily plays with the new one that's replaced it.
