The birth of our sweet babe was the most incredible experience of my life. The excitement of finally being in and done with labor, the fear of the unknown, the love that surrounded me, and the joy of holding that little bundle after all that hard work was complete (or really just beginning) was the best feeling. Since I knew I would be making a "First Yearbook" digitally I didn't really have a place for the little keep sakes we left the hospital with! I had his cute little hat, the card from his hospital bassinet, his ankle band, a teeny newborn diaper, and a tie from his elephant crib bumper, which is all neatly crafted in a shadow box!
Once the pictures were ordered and the scrabble letters were glued together, it was basically just pinning the other items into the shadow box. Now when I make his baby box I can neatly just place this in there, rather than throwing a loose ankle band, a newborn hat, and a teeny tiny diaper. I am sure one day in the next couple of years I will show him the diaper to show how small he really was!
Here is a little sneak peak of "Easton's First Yearbook". I hope to have in completed in the next month or so. I just get caught up in all the pictures and journaling when I work on it...so far a very slow process for this Mama!
