Celebrate good times!

Parenthood works in mysterious ways. Last year I was amazed that people would create video montages of their cherished little ones to put on youtube. This year I’ve gone ahead and made such a video myself. Wow.

I could say its primary purpose is for Marcus’ family in the UK  but, if I am honest, I had an overwhelming desire to string his year together and take a look at it myself. Its been quite the year and I am so, so proud of  us getting here.

Albie is awesome, and so is turning one year old.  Here’s some of his year for you to enjoy in all its Microsoft pan, zoom and fade glory.


Its ridiculously indulgent, running at 6:44, but it seems there are no taste police in Doting Motherville, not one. Sigh.
