Today we celebrate the good times and the rough times of the past year. I so look forward to year two and seeing Colin change and learn and grow. He is so much fun and I can now say that I wouldn't mind having another one just like him. =) Not anytime soon, but you get the idea.
You know that blog I posted a few days ago? I like that she makes "yearbooks" for her kids. (Yeah, pretty much a scrapbook). She does a digital version so it is bound in a hardback book. I am adopting that for my family. I worked on this in one day so I could have it ordered and delivered in time for Colin's birthday party so people could "sign his yearbook" or write a message in the back.
Colin's Year One Book
It is pretty short and just a collection of some of my favorite pictures of him from the past year. It, unfortunately, in no way has EVERYTHING that happened last year.
I love the digital scrapbook and plan to make his yearbook that way every year. Except I have a feeling they will be huge come the next following years. Since I have a plan, I will be making pages whenever I get a chance with my most current photos of him.
Another plus I found with the digital scrapbook? Grandmas can order there own copy if they wish.
Tonight we will have one of Colin's favorites for dinner (tortellini) followed by a new birthday tradition I plan to start. A trip to Julia's Bakery to pick out a birthday treat.
