I’m finally getting started on a baby album for Nora! Except that it’s really for me…and since most of the photos and happenings are being documented in photo books, I’m free to be all sorts of self-indulgent and just scrapbook exactly what I want to in this album.
It’s also a great place to store all the actual scraps, like the prettified, non-official birth certificate we got at the hospital, ultrasound photos, and the chart from Nora’s first week of life where we noted every single feeding and diaper change (looking at that thing now, I understand why I can’t remember much from those zombie newborn weeks).
I finally got the birth story written down! I’ve never made a layout with quite this much writing on it before, but then again, it wasn’t your ordinary day. The tab with the little camera on it can be pulled to reveal the more, uhm, private photos from that whole experience.
I’ve been hoarding baby scrapbook products for years, but apparently I’m sticking to my old flower tricks on these. Oh well. The text on this one is from what JK calls his Nora song, Light by Sleeping at Last.
…and that page functions as a sort-of-two-pager with this one, where I gush about this amazing little lady of ours. I’m guessing that will be the main theme of this album – gushing. Because come on, she’s the best.
