And since I haven't posted pictures of my scrapbook in a while....I found this book at Hobby Lobby and I love it! It's so girly and perfect for Chloe's scrapbook!
Icky! This is one of those things I have had to eat my words about after I gave birth. I have always thought that pictures of babies fresh out of the womb and not cleaned off were just gross. Still do, in fact. I even told Russ not to take pictures of her like that. Well, that changed the second she was born. Russ was standing with me watching the nurses with her and I quickly told him to "Take pictures! Take pictures!" And then I even scrapbooked them. There have been many things since then that I have had to take back!
If you follow my blog on a regular basis, you may remember me talking about my "Baby Box". This is the box that my mother kept of some of my baby things. She wouldn't let us look through the boxes and she would give the boxes to us (my siblings and I) whenever we had our first child. Through the process of conceiving Chloe, I often times wondered if I was ever going to get my box. This is something that I have wanted for a long time and was one of the things that I most looked forward to during my pregnancy. I decided to go ahead and add this spread to Chloe's scrapbook for that reason.
I think you can tell what most of it is, but there are a few things I am going to clarify. On the first page: bottom row, middle picture is a stack of blankets that people made for me. I can't remember who made which, but it is written down somewhere and Mom knows. On the bottom row, third picture of the same page is my baby book and a stack of cards that Mom kept for me. I had no idea that those were in there and I loved looking through them. There are cards from my Gramsie and my Grandma who have both passed on so they are extremely special to me. Now, on the second page: Top row, third picture is a handmade blanket that was embroidered. The bottom row, first picture is another group of blankets. I couldn't fit all of the blankets in one picture since I cut them down. The bottom row, middle picture is a doll carrier that was made for me. It has a blanket and a pillow that goes with it. Then the bottom row, third picture is a doll sleeping bag that I played with when I was little.
