Happy, happy birthday baby

Yesterday, I was going to my first adoption meeting. Today, my baby is turning two. I have no idea how that is possible. I know that he is still a baby in many ways but today feels like such a milestone--like he is now more boy than baby. It makes me happy and sad all at the same time. It has been an amazing year of firsts for Andrew. As I looked through pictures from this past year, I saw so many things that he had done for the first time--big things like his first steps and little things like listening to headphones. There was no way to choose a few pictures to give an accurate description of the past year, so I created a video instead. It's a little bit long but the music is fast and let's face's 6 minutes of one of the cutest faces you'll ever see.

  1. Ellie and I loved this video. It was cute that Ellie had already seen it. She was excited to tell me what was coming next. Happy Birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday, Andrew! The video is great--- and you're right, he is one of the cutest faces I've ever seen! Doesn't time seem to go by so much faster now that you're a parent? It's crazy!

    I came across your blog site and have really enjoyed it. Happy Birthday to your beautiful son. We too have adopted our boy who will be two in March through Sunny Ridge. I believe we met you briefly at the picnic back in September.

  4. I love the video Ruthanne. Andrew is seriously one of the cutest things ever and I think he gets cuter every time I see him!
