How to Measure a Year? Love

Here are our 525,600 minutes of life since the twins were born… condensed down to four. It’s true. What you remember from a year are the simple moments of everyday life filled with l-o-v-e.

And if you’ve NEVER heard the song “Seasons of Love” from the musical Rent, enjoy this youtube.

On the next birthday that happens in your home, think back on the year and the moments that stand out for you. I’ll bet ‘ja they’re full of it (love I mean…)!!!

I’d love to hear about how you celebrate birthday’s in your home. If you have any cute pictures from your little one’s first birthday, upload them to our Gallery page. Just send them from your computer or phone to person55while(@)photos(.)flickr(.)com with the email subject line as your picture’s title.

  1. My son is becoming 2 years old after a month, I am happy mother of healthy kid which likes to play a lot and grow so fast.

  2. What a sweet video and what HAPPY HAPPY one year olds!!! What lucky babies to be born into your circle of love. I do have a birthday coming up (miss Lilah P will be 4, if you can believe that). We don’t have that many birthday traditions yet, but it’s a full day+ of spoiling. Each birthday is exactly what you said, a celebration of these series of moments that you never want to forget….thank god for video & photos 🙂
    Congratulations on beautiful babies, Suzanne.

  3. It is hard to believe the twins are a year old! May they contiune to have a happy, healthy life surrounded by those who love them.

  5. Very lovely video, my brother have twins, I am blessed with son.

  6. Enjoy this years, they are growing so fast, my daughter is going to school now, I miss the time when we were spending all day together.

  7. I am working from home as a writer and I am spending all day with my son. I had to do a trip for 4 days last month and when I came back he looked so grown up.

  8. thank you all for the commetns! jodie… so true. i feel like preschool is right around the corner and i’m loving our full days together-holding on to everyday. having two older kids gives me real perspective on how VERY fast it all goes. jenny, we feel like sometimes they grow overNIGHT! four days — your lil guy must have seemed so much “bigger”. 😉
