What? No, I am not crying! Pshhh, no, I have been chopping onions ALL day! (as I finish watching the video-again) Sorry, had to finish that conversation with one of my macho guy friends. :)
What an incredible opportunity, not only for Sophie who will be able to watch these videos over and over documenting your incredible love for her, but for the rest of us. Thanks for allowing your friends to be a part of such an amazing journey. It's an honor! Now go change a diaper-Mark. : ) Love you guys.
