It's About Time; The Making of a Baby Book.

Thursday, May 28, 2009


Today it begins. I am finally getting around to putting together some baby books for the little man. I know, he is almost 2, it's about time, right?

When he was born I did the whole "baby milestone book" thing. And ever since I have collected and saved every picture taken, and every "drawing" made. I have had the books since before the little guy was born, complete with rolls and rolls of double stick tape. I have been more than ready to make these for over a year. 

So why haven't I put the damn things together? Yeah, no excuses. 

Well today it begins. I'm hoping by the end of next month I will have every picture affixed, every date written, every event notated. 

So now my trip down memory lane begins, I'll be happily showing off the final product once I am done.  At the rate I'm going let's just hope that is before baby number two arrives....

On the eve of Nick's wedding, I gave him a beautiful book of memorabilia and milestones. It made us both cry. It was definitely worth all the work. LM's future wife will thank you some day.

Welcome back YM.

I took all kinds of videos when the girls were little. I have an especially funny one where they are playing hide and seek with the neighbours' kids and they hid in his garbage can. Now you have to know this neighbour - he is anal to the "t" and his garbage cans were (and are) spotless. Needless to say, when I took the video of Heather in the garbage can, I made some funny comments about how anal he was and what kind of f'n mother would let their kid hide in a garbage can. Anyways, the girls are much older now and have watched their movies and they can hear ALL my comments as I was recording. Just a cautionary note for you - if you use a video camera, remember he/they will watch it years later!! Words of wisdom. I have never lived it down.
