Happy First Birthday, Baby Girl!

A year ago today you were born.   I was induced and 7 hours later you were here.  You've been a really easy baby.  (I've been really lucky to have had two easy babies.)  I've made it to my goal of a year of nursing and we're about to wrap that up.  I'm sure you'd keep going, but mama is leaving you for a week very soon so it's time.  You're a great eater and a good sleeper.  You're a happy little girl.  You're pretty friendly with everyone, but as soon as mama comes back into the room you've got to have her.  You love your brother.  He makes you laugh the most.  You look for him in the living room when you wake up each morning.  We've so enjoyed getting to know you and cannot wait to watch you blossom.

The day before you turned ONE!







Here's the video I made.  It's REALLY 17 minutes long.  I don't expect everyone to make it though the whole thing.  The music is good though!  Family, if I will see you tonight don't watch this now.  You can see it on the big screen later.

Beautiful! And of course I sat through the whole thing. So did a lady I work with who doesn't even know Peyton -- LOL. She went on and on about how pretty Peyton is, how good the pictures were, etc., etc. The "birthday videos" you do for the kids are such great keepsakes. Have fun tonight!
