Time flies when you're havin' fun, right? It's hard to believe that 1 year ago today I saw my sweet baby girl R for the first time. For 8 1/2 months, I wondered whether or not she'd look like her big sister. I could only imagine what her personality would be like. Would she have brown or blue eyes? The list goes on and each day I would start to learn more and more about her.
I promised myself that I wouldn't do what everyone says they do with their 2nd child and not take as many pictures. I've done my best this first year but I do have to agree that it's hard with all the activity, and hustle & bustle of a multi-child household and full time working mom.
I hoped to have 75% of her 1st year scrapbooked and preserved by now. I'm a far cry from that. Not only am I so far from that goal but now I'm even more behind on Rheagan's book. I think I need to get away for a weekend scrapbooking retreat with my girlfriends and SOON! In the meantime, I'm going to print contact sheets so I can figure out pics, make my sketches and take a few days off and just devote it to playing a little catch-up. Maybe I'll start with Baby R's 1st birthday party pics and work backwards. Then again, maybe not.
Speaking of Baby R's 1st birthday, we celebrated a few days early this past weekend. Great food, awesome family, fun times and TONS of pictures to scrapbook!
