We're super excited for our trip to Minnesota tomorrow. We're nearly packed and ready despite the FOUR vanillabean orders that came in this week. Luckily, I have a partner... or I might have had a breakdown.

Last week, I finished these two scrapbook pages chronicling Lily's monthly growth by photos in her beloved PB Kids bunny towel from the McAnellys. We decided that she has really looked exactly the same since month 2. We don't know who that little skinny baby was in month 1.


After many ruined dvds and near breakdowns, Jeff finished this video montage (or monTERage... as one of my college roommates said) of Lily's first year. The music kept skipping... and he couldn't take it!

Forget Baby Einstein videos... Lily has been captivated by her own cute little face on this one. She's even trying to say 'baby' and 'lily'... I think... and enjoys the occasional cameo from her favorite people.

I love the video. And I love all the pictures in her bunny towel. That is funny that she was only a skinny little baby for 1 month. I hope y'all have a great time in Minnesota.

Great Video. Lily is such a cutie pie. I am pretty impressed that you remembered to take a picture each month. Love you all, Nana
