It’s the little hummingbird’s 2nd BIRTHDAY!! today! Instead of writing a letter for her, I decided to do an interpretive dance with the cat about what the last two years have meant and record it but my cat wouldn’t cooperate.
Actually, my cat was on board with the whole thing, it was me who became camera shy.
While my daughter is my hubby’s clone, I think that she has my eyes, nose, and hands. You can’t really tell with the picture below. We don’t have a scanner so we took a picture of the picture of my first birthday.
During the little hummingbird’s first year, I made a video every few months and would send it to family. I would have the camera at the ready and record everything.
After she turned 1, I got lazy. Whenever she did something cute or there was a milestone, my thinking was “Meh, if she did it once, she’ll do it again. I’ll get a picture eventually”.
To celebrate her 2nd BIRTHDAY!! I made a video of her first 2 years. Alot of it is pictures with some video of her. I planned on making it only a few minutes long like I’ve done in the past but while looking through everything, it ended up being a lot longer.
It’s 8 minutes and 33 seconds long. I thought about cutting the video down but found it impossible. In fact it was a mission impossible. heh.
I don’t know who would sit through an 8 1/2 minute video of a stranger’s kid
I would because I’m just like that but if you do, I lurve you.
There’s only one picture I put of her before she was rushed to the NICU a day after she was born. Those pictures (of her before the NICU) are still really difficult to look at since they represent the fact that her blood sugar was plummeting without us having any idea. If it wasn’t caught when it was…..let’s just say it makes me sick when I think about it.
I had planned on writing about my
awful birth experience and my daughter being in the NICU for 21 days by the time she had her birthday because I thought it would help the anger and bad feelings I have about it. But I had to stop for now since it got too emotional.
So here’s over 8 minutes of my beautiful daughter who I love more than anything in this world. I’m very lucky. Tired, sometimes frazzled, annoyed every now and then, but VERY lucky.
Happy Birthday My Sweet Baby Girl!! My love for you grows every day!
Since I can’t leave you hanging, here are some guys doing an interpretive dance to Rythym Of The Night.
