For Sophia's birthday, I wanted to organize all the videos from her year and put them on a DVD. I've been spending about 15 minutes of her naps for the past couple weeks watching the videos, naming them, and deciding which ones are actually worth preserving. That turned out to be really overwhelming, so when I saw my friend Ashley's video for her daughter, I decided a tribute video with short clips would be MUCH more manageable. Now I have a beautiful finished product to keep me satisfied until I finish the entire DVD.
Russ and I watched it last night and just kept looking at each other, not believing how much she has changed and grown. The only sad thing is I somehow deleted almost every video from the first month of Sophia's life. If I hadn't I would have begun the movie with the video that accompanied this picture:
Sophia just watched the video with me, and when it was over, she did the sign language and said, "Mo" for "more". I guess she liked it. :)
