Happy Birthday Big E!

So "Big E" is one.  We had the Finding Nemo Party a few weekends ago and I've finally had time to finish his Birthday video.  Starting on the day we brought him home from the hospital, we took a photo each night of his first year.  I compiled these photos into a video for his birthday- a few weeks late! :)  I tried to find a good Disney song to put it to, but my love for "Forever Young" by Rod Stewart, won.  Mickey was borrowed from big brother for the past year to help measure how big Big E was getting.  C-man was happy to get "his Mickey" back when Big E turned one and I quit taking the photo each night!

Happy Birthday baby boy!  You have brought us so much joy and I cherish each day I get to snuggle with you.  I love you more than you'll ever know.  May all your wishes come true.

  2. So sweet Beth!! He is so adorable!! What a great idea!!

    1. Thanks Donna! I think he's pretty adorable too. I find it funny how Mickey just keeps getting smaller and smaller in this video! :)

  3. I love this video!! What a great idea!! He does look like he's dancing through the year and Mickey is just shrinking. He is such a beautiful boy!!! Happy Birthday Big E!!

  4. What a great idea. I can see him each night seeing the props come out and knowing what is next. I am amazed he still lets you take his picture. :)

  5. This is seriously the cutest idea ever. I love it! You certainly do have handsome little boys at your house!
