Fable and Hal, on Fable's birthday
It's been a whole year since I made one of these suckers and it wasn't until Friday night, hours before Fable turned two that I decided to see if I could throw together a last-minute celebratory "Fable Film" for oldtimes sake...
It's a lot easier to select pictures from a month's worth of images than an entire year, hence the delay in posting this. Trying to choose even a hundred images from thousands of them is an impossibility. Originally, this video was over thirteen minutes long and that was before I'd even made it to February of 2010. I took over ten-thousand pictures this year because clearly I'm an insane person. But also because it goes. so. fast and cameras seem to. pause. time. And in a way, they absolutely do.
So many changes occur between a first and second birthday and looking back at pictures of Fable barely standing, (Fable, like Archer, didn't walk until she was seventeen-months) practically bald, I can only imagine that this time next year I'll be banging my head against the wall same as I did tonight, remembering all the wonderful things and times I apparently forgot.
One would think that blogging about milestones and moments would make them hold stay in one's memory but it isn't so, not for me anyway. This is why, even though I should have been asleep hours ago (which means I am in big trouble and very grounded.) I'm grateful I got to spend some alone time tonight with the many faces of my tiny lady friend. Sunshine personified, she is.
Behold, a lengthy nod to a split-second of a year with Miss Fable Luella:
