clara's baby book
Clara was given a couple LOVELY baby books upon her arrival. And, despite everything that pulls me in a zillion directions everyday, I have managed to actually keep up with one of them. Praise God.
It's not a full on handmade scrapbook with lots of cutesy do-dads or bling (I kinda always thought I would make one of those...maybe someday)...and it's not a daily journal where I compose long thoughtful passages about her daily/weekly accomplishments. Oh no. Nothing like that. Though I think that would be a wonderful treasure and I wish I could do that.
Ours is simple. I basically fill in the blanks that are provided and write a little blurb every month about her adventures...and then I use a glue stick to attach a left over picture into the little designated slot. It's amazing how fast I forget details...like when she rolled over or first crawled...but thankfully I've documented it in the book!
Oh man. I can't even tell you how freaking proud of that book I am! Maybe someday I'll make a photo book or real scrapbook or something a little more extravagant to commemorate the first year of my first born...but for now I'm happy with filling in the blanks in her pretty little pre-made baby book...gotta keep life simple!
