When I’m With You: A Video of Anna’s First Year

It’s hard to believe that one year ago today we joyfully announced Anna’s arrival. I woke up this morning at 6:33am to sounds of her little voice, and when I looked at the clock I knew exactly what we were doing a year ago. She was just 2 1/2 hours old, our family was starting to arrive at the hospital, and we were already smitten.

I’ve been writing Anna letters since the day I found out I was pregnant. I thought I’d write them monthly until she turned one, but now that the day is here, I don’t think I’ll be able to stop. I hope someday those letters and this video will give her a small glimpse at all the months she won’t remember.
