Happy Birthday To Pickle!!!

Well, I can't believe it--but Pickle is two today! I know it's a cliche, but wow, time goes by so fast. I swear it feels like she was just born.

So in honor of her birthday, I made this little video. It makes me tear up--not sure if it will have that effect on other people--but have some Kleenex handy just in case!




Happy Birthday to my sweet Pickle!! Her birthday bash is Saturday, so tune in Sunday for the recap!

P.S. Thanks to my friends Tami and Misty for recommending a site to make the video!

P.P.S. I participated in a "Favorite Things' swap on Because Wendi Said So and I received my swap package today! Thank you Alex!! Look at all this cool stuff:
1. Bend It Like Beckham video.
2. The Jane Austen Book Club (book)
3. Can You Keep A Secret? (book)
4. Really cute pack of note cards.
5. Great set of pens.
6. What is, according to Alex and also my son Teddy, the best gum in the world.
7. A nice magnetic notepad (much needed!).
8. The best Chapstick in the world!
9. Fun stickers for Pickle (she's already played with them--I had to hide that part for the pic).
and
10. A chocolate bar--I will thoroughly enjoy this, but I feel AWFUL because I didn't realize that Alex hates chocolate and I sent her some! And not just any chocolate--REALLY weird chocolate. So, I'm sorry Alex--maybe it's so bizarre that you'll like it? Otherwise, just regift it! And thanks so much for the package! That was a fun swap!!
11. Oops! I forgot--there was also a pack of Crystal Light--one my kids commandeered it so it was missing from the picture.

What a neat video. I LOVE the picture of her with the apple, the little pearl necklace you see in several pictures, and the one with her by the ocean in a ballerina skirt. What a beautiful little girl. She is a cutie!
Is she you're last? I know I am getting way more sentimental know Summer is my last baby! She will be 2 in March, and I feel her babyhood is flying by. It's such a precious time....

Happy Birthday to Pickle, and thanks to you for opening up about your story of her conception; it really made me think and has stuck with me, and the series got me hooked on your blog. So yeah, hope the days is GREAT! And the swap gifts are so neat! Although if you sent her than bacon chocolate stuff she might hate you, ha ha.
