Cait's One year video

It's a tradition in our family to make a "one year" video for our girls. Besides being a compilation of our favourite pictures from their first year, it's also where we introduce them to "their song". We spend a LOT of time listening to music and finding the song that perfectly describes how we feel about our newest family member. Hailey's song is "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds, Paige's is "surprisingly so" by Amy Seeley and Cait's song is "Lucky" by Kat Edmonson. The girls love listening to their songs and hearing why we chose their song for them. In Hailey's case we just felt soooo lucky to have her in our life. When we had Paige we were worried about how we could possible love another baby as much as we loved Hailey. Surprisingly enough it wasn't all that hard at all, and she quickly became one of "our favourite things". And Cait's song, we're so lucky again. The lyrics I like are "Life is just a dream, lucky you, lucky me". We toyed with the idea of having "We were made for eachother" by Emilie Mover as her song, but "lucky" just felt so much more appropriate for Cait. Have a listen and let me know what you think.
