I am the WORLD'S worst when it comes to scrapbooking or journaling. Blogging seriously is the best thing that has happened to me because without it - I wouldn't have written down anything over the last 5 years and now it's all at my fingertips.
Before Harper was born - I set out to make her this wonderful baby book. I worked very hard on it.........and then never touched it once we got home from the hospital. So last year I decided to use an on-line website and make her a "Baby Book". I made a copy for us and for both sets of grandparents. It's one of my biggest treasures.
So I have decided that every year - I will make EACH girl her own book - outlining her life that year. We keep our pictures cataloged by day which makes it easy and I use my blog as a reference. It takes time but I think it's so worth it. And it makes a great present for the grandparents! ha!
Last year I finished Harper's by her birthday but I'm a little slower this year and just got year two done. Just in time to start working on year 3 for Harper and year 1 for Hollis.
I thought I would share a little of Harper's book with you! You have been along with us for the last year anyway! Her book is around 100 pages. It's hard to pick and choose - but I mostly took the highlights.
I used Snapfish.com to make my book but I know there are other great sites like shutterfly, inkubook, blurb, etc where you can do the same thing! (I used the coupon code BABYSBOOK and saved about 25% off my total order at snapfish)
How do you record your family memories??????
