Later this month, my husband and I will be hosting our daughter’s 1st birthday at McDonalds. I mean really, who didn’t love a McDonald’s birthday party in the 80s and 90s?
Before my daughter was even born, I created an email address for her, every month or so, I email her and tell her a few things. Send her random pictures and videos. I plan on giving her this email address when she’s 16 or.. when she decides to have her own children. I got the idea from this YouTube video.
Now that her first birthday is coming up, I’m working on ideas on what I should say to her for her 1st birthday video. I want to:
a) Tell her a little about herself, us, uncle and grandparents
b) Take a video of just her
c) Take a video of our house (give her a little tour of what it looks like right now)
d) Invite friends and family to also send her an video to her email address, wishing her a happy 1st birthday
Right now, I’m compiling a list of things that I would like to mention to her. Here is what I have so far:
- Height and weight
- # of teeth
- Eye and hair colour
- Things she loves (food, toys, book, tv show)
- Things she dislikes (food, toys)
- Where she has traveled
- Words she can say
- Can she walk?
- Memorable moments
- Future boyfriend predictions (ha!)
- What is the #1 song on the radio that day.
Do you have any ideas for what else we should mention in our video?
