Baby's First Year


My son is already going on 2 and I just as of yesterday got his one year record book finished. I got a beautiful Hallmark Baby Book at one of his showers but only very gradually was able to do much with it. Especially with having to move three times this last year it was hard to keep everything together. Believe it or not I was still unpacking a box that I had hidden away in the sun room that I completely forgot about. As I was going through it I came across a ton of things that I had stashed away to put in his baby book. I found a lot of cards from birth and all of his showers. His baby bracelets, ID in his hospital bed, his first movie stub, and a whole lot more. I was so excited to finally get his baby book finished and since he is almost 19 months there was no reason I couldn’t get the first year recap finished. I thought I would also mention some of Jacob’s firsts with this post as well. I am falling behind!

Here is a picture in Jacob's baby book of the first curl that was cut from his first hair cut. I cut a blue ribbon and tied it in the center of the hair and folded it in waxed paper to protect it and still keep it visible.

This was such a sweet post :) Just so you know, you're not alone about the baby book~I'm still working on Kendall's & he's 1 1/2 years old! I have 3 baby books that I received from showers so it's taking me a little while, lol! I WILL get them finished though. Wonderful post though :)
