This video covers from the spring just past Grace's 1st birthday until when she was about 18 months old, so about two years ago. I have talked a big talk in the past about not really missing Grace as a baby and not feeling sad about the past being past, but I will admit that these videos make me ache with nostalgia for the way she talked, the way she wanted to be held all the time, and for heavens sake the way she walked. Her newbie toddle just KILLS me.

For Mothers' Day and my birthday this year, I asked Rob to go through all of our unedited video and, you know, edit it and stuff. It has been such a delight to find it all and get these glimpses into our life from many months ago. It was NOT such a delight to discover that our video of Grace's first year of life has disappeared into the ether; we are pretty sure that it got transferred from tape to a hard drive at some point and then after being ignored for years that hard drive got formatted or something. I feel pretty sad about it, but we are drawing the lesson from our mishap that we really have to stay up-to-date on editing the video if we don't want it to get lost.
