Nora turned two on Friday! That was my impetus to finally make a scrapbook page about her first birthday. Heh. My scrapbooking mojo is finally returning now that the seasons are changing, and I want to spend the autumn filling out the most important missing bits and pieces of Nora’s album before another wee babby appears on the scene.
I used scrap papers to make this page, and I couldn’t remember where I had originally used those papers until I saw the page this will go next to in the album – things I want to remember about Nora at one year old. It’s fate! Also, I am so glad I wrote all of those things down a year ago, because I had totally forgotten about most of them until I read this again. They change so fast, these little ones.
Another recent addition to the album is this page that I made using Ali Edwards’ Food Circles – I grabbed the journaling from this post, it’s about how happy we were with baby-led weaning and introducing Nora to our family’s food culture.
I have a glorious collection of your typical, adorable photos of baby-with-food-smeared-all-over-her-face/body/hair that really ought to go along with this page, so I think I’ll add them in a divided page protector like I did with the snowshoeing layout in this post. I want this album to be a good mix of layouts with stories, memorabilia (from the hospital and well visits with the pediactrician), and lots and lots of photos.
