A Gift For My Daughter

Today is BEYOND bittersweet...
Our baby is no longer a baby {technically}.
We now have a toddler. ::sniffle::

Where did this year go???

Didn't we just bring home this tiny 7lb gorgeous baby girl, like yesterday?

I could cry.

But I wont.  Instead, I am here to celebrate what has been the most amazing, life changing, absolutely perfect gift that I have been ever given...

Gwen.

Of course we will be  having a birthday party, showering her with gifts, and eating tons of cake, but I wanted to make something for her that she could keep forever and maybe show her children some day. 

So... Please turn up your sound, view in full screen, and celebrate with us!

Happy 1st Birthday, Gwenyth Cynthia!

Mommy & Daddy love you so much!

xoxo.

Re-cue the tears from last night after reading Jason's sweet letter to precious Gwen:)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GWEN!!!!

Your video was beautiful...I know she will treasure it forever!!!!



Side note...I've been working on gathering pics for something like this for Addie but am clueless as to what software to use. Do you mind me asking what you used to make this amazing video??

Thanks girls! I am showing it today at her Birthday party too! I cried the whole 2 weeks I was making it, lol. We had an amazing day and are now prepping for the craziness of almost 100 people at her party... ahhh.

J- I used Windows Live Movie Maker and imported the music from iTunes. It was super easy, let me know if you need any advice :)
