Forever Young

I’m still working on Stella’s 23 week post that was supposed to go up on Thursday (a week of having my parents here, including my photographer mother, means that there are lots of great pictures to sort through first)… but in the meantime, check this out!

Stella was having a little meltdown, so Grandpa Elmo pulled out the guitar. This song is so special to us – Dad sang it for Charlie and me at our wedding in 2008 and again at Stella’s baptism 3 1/2 years later.


  1. That's great you caught it on video too, this will be a great memory to have years from now! What a perfect song to represent our babies!

  2. That's one special song calmed her right down. I like how at 1:04 how she started moving her fingers as if she was playing her own guitar. She's a doll!

  3. Adorable! This is so special! Soon she will want to strum it herself. HGB thinks he is Neil Young. Stella is now his blog girlfriend. Called it!

  4. sweetest thing ever!!! 🙂

  5. Watching Charlie smile at Stella totally made me bawl. That is a great video. Stuff like that makes girls awesome when they are older. 🙂

  6. Crying sweet, sweet tears of joy!!! Charlie looking at Stella, Dad singing right to her, Stells intently staring at Grandpa Elmo, and NanaMamma and Mommy watching the whole scene adoring…so, SO blessed.

  7. Awww…so sweet 🙂

  8. That is so, so sweet. G is always calmed by music too. Love that.

  9. This is sooo sweet! How wonderful that you caught it on video! 🙂

  10. Add me to the crying list! So sweet.

  11. That is so fantastic! Love the way she is just staring!

  12. Wow, the power of music! Your dad is fantastic at both guitar and being a grandfather. 🙂

  13. and thank you for causing the tears to flow! haha. So sweet!!! I love this man!

  14. I have goose bumps.That's so sweet! What a great song and I just love how she's watching to intently. Perfect.

  15. Was it just me or did Charlie look a little choked up a couple times? 🙂 I know I was. Super cute!
