Dear Penny,

One year ago to the day, you entered this world.
Life couldn't be better without you in it.
I love you.

I'm so glad you posted that video! It's so beautiful... amazing. Omgosh, so much to live up to.

It was so neat watching it again, though, because that's the very first thing I ever saw of you! Amber sent me to watch it last summer after I had Noah and I was still hormonal, so I just cried...

I can't believe I"m going to get the honor of documenting new baby's birth! I'm going to have to study that video! :)

And we can't wait to see you guys in a bit for Penny's big day!!! :)

Happy 1 cent Penny!!!!!

I love that video! And could watch it over and over and over again. It's so beautiful! I love that all the kids were there with you. Makes me really look forward to meeting your next baby:)

I still think you should consider homebirth though. It's really the way to go now-a-days! Then we could all gather around you as you labor in the pool in the kitchen, and the kids can watch tv.

Anyways, Happy Birthday Izey Ro!!!!

LOL my sister had her baby in my mom's kitchen in a birthing pool ... I'm not sure if I'd recommend it but she loved it. Happy Birthday Izey!

Bonnie said...

Happy Birthday, Izaak!!! We miss you sooo much! Have a good day, buddy!

i love that video! It's perfect! You're sister is so talented, it's kind of sickening. And you!!! You look freakin' awesome, I never look that good... especially when I'm giving birth.

Miss you guys!

What a wonderful story, and the video is beautiful.

Holy cow, I LOVED that video! I'd seen other birthing photography before, but this is definitely my favorite. I loved that it was all in black and white. That takes a lot of the nastiness out of the birthing process and just leaves the beauty. :)

Happy Birthday to your babe!
