I ran across another blog that did this and thought it was so cute that I had to do it. I’m going to try to continue it once a year until the kids are about 6.

Here is Miss Mia on her second birthday.


  • Heather - OMG I LOVE this! You have no idea how SAD I am that I don’t have any videos of Madison when she was little =(

  • Emily - This is very sweet. What a fun treasure this will be to watch when she is older! Would you mind sharing where the elephant chair is from? It is so fun!

  • Carla - Adorable! I have seen the interviews typed out, but not a video interview. Great idea! Mia is a cutie.

  • johanna - Emily, their great grandmother got it for her as a gift. I ‘think’ maybe either Palais Royal or Kohl’s?

  • Kristi - I “love” her giggles and her energy! Your girls are PRECIOUS!

  • Becky - SO cute!

  • Nancy - This was absolutely precious! So glad you were inspired by the other person to do your own video! That is what I love about bloggers, they inspire others! Loved her giggles and I loved it when you left them room and she was just a rockin and then giggling. Great job! Thanks for sharing this with us! Hugs from Conroe, TX

  • Jessi - Very precious! I want do this when my girls’ birthdays come around. How long did the whole uncut interview take? Thx!

  • johanna - It took about 30 minutes

  • Ruth - What an adorable idea!!! I love your girls’ rocking chairs. Have you ever shared where they are from?

  • johanna - The chairs were a gift. I ‘think’ they are either from Palais Royal or Kohl’s?

  • Ruth - Thanks Johanna. And sorry for the duplicate question. How annoying is that?! As soon as I posted my comment, I saw that someone had already asked!!

  • johanna - Haha Ruth! It is ok. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Stephanie M. - She is just adorable! I love her curls. And such a little ball of energy. I bet your days are interesting! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    My little girl, Heidi, is right behind Mia, turning 2 in just a few weeks. I plan to do a little birthday interview with her too. I thought it was funny, Heidi loves to sing that Frere Jacquez song too. She busted it out in Target one day…so random!

    Anyway I love your blog! Been following for about a year and a half now. Both of your girls are beautiful and I can’t get enough of your pics! You are beyond talented.

  • johanna - Thanks Stephanie. I love those curls too! Yes our days are very interesting around here ๐Ÿ™‚ Ausha has turned into a ball of energy too (more so than Mia). That’s awesome you are going to do a video for Heidi. I’d LOVE to see it ๐Ÿ™‚ How funny she sings that song too. Thanks for following!

  • Kacie - I LOVE this!! She’s getting so big!

  • johanna - The elephant chair is from Marshall’s. I know it is hit or miss finding things there though. The tag says “Golden Chair, Inc.”

Loving my new lens ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Stephanie - Beautiful pictures! What lens did you get?

  • Johanna - 50mm 1.4

  • Richelle - Where did you get her adorable scarf?

  • Amanda Keeys - Goodness me, when did she start looking so grown up? Lovely.

  • johanna - I guess around the same time Piper did ๐Ÿ™ Boohoo!

  • johanna - It is one of my scarves chopped in half then sewn together. ๐Ÿ™‚ From Target.

  • Nancy - Precious as usual and she does look so grown up, eeek. Stop the clock!!
