I was soooo excited to finally get started on this album this past weekend!! I have been setting aside bits and pieces and writing down ideas for months and months now, and it is so satisfying to see it all start coming together! The first spread is of all her ultrasound photos and other things from before she was born. I am going to add in a traditional layout with some pregnancy photos eventually.
This is my favorite part of this page. I wrote that little card on the day I found out I was pregnant and have been saving it since then. That is why I make these albums and love project life, it's all about capturing moments like that as they happen :)
My sweet baby girl. I don't have nearly as many photos as I did of the day when Derek was born. I think that's because my sister wasn't there to take them :) Dave got a blurry shot of me holding her moments after she was born and it might be grainy and out of focus but the emotion is there and that's what matters. I used a bunch of my Welcome Baby Girl products for this one. I get them printed for like $.67 a sheet at Office Depot and then cut em up here at home.
Here, I added in all of our hospital bracelets and just stapled them to a sheet of cardstock and then I also used the little card they attached to her bassinet at the hospital. I have Derek's from when he was born too .
I think my father-in-law took this photo and although I am not in love with how I look it is our first photo as a whole family :):):)
