Tribute to Blake

Here is a video that Alan made a couple of years ago. It's footage from the time Blake was born up until he was about 8 months old. Chloe was 2 and a half.

Just a little more narrative so you can understand the conversation that the video begins with. You will see my back, and check out the paper I have in my hands. I was on speaker phone with our friend Jerry going over names for our soon to be born baby boy. Chloe was in the bath tub that evening. Funny thing was, the next morning at 5:30am I woke up in labor, and Blake was born at 7:55 am.

Enjoy

We loved it! The kids and I that is.

What a cute boy. Aida noticed how he has the same face he has now.

Pablo kept calling him "blank" which I found pretty darn cute.

That's his Daddy's beer of choice... I say yuck to... Blake use to love to suck on the can, must have been because it was cold.

Am I crazy in thinking Pabst is from Detroit? If it is then I will put in in the category of "comfort food" for Alan and not think he is totally off his rocker.

My favourite part is you, Amy, on the phone having to explain to Jerry who Gordy Howe is!

Ashley said...

Loved it, Amy!

My dad made videos like that of me while I was growing up, set to music. They are priceless to me.

Checking your blog is now part of my internet routine.

Are you kidding? There are a few things about a woman that'll really grab my attention: red hair, an Irish brogue, and a comfortable familiarity with hockey! Sure there are more, but those were the first that came to mind.
