I've been preparing for Ada's party. Gathering photos for a month-by-month banner and the like. Anyway, I came across this video I took back in February when Ada was three months old. I intended to share it, but I think at the time I had trouble uploading it.
It's somewhat Blair Witch Project with my shaky videography. I love it, though.
Pouring over all the photos and videos from the past year has me astounded at how much Ada has changed. How we've all changed, really. It feels like it all went by so quickly, but looking through everything shows me how much we've gone through. It's been quite a journey, to use the biggest cliche ever.
I am happy I have a blog where I can read about my thoughts and Ada's milestones, etc. Otherwise, I would have lost a lot of it in the craziness.
I had the best intentions to keep it all organized.
We bought a memory book (this one), well it's actually a memory book at box combined, a couple months before she was born. I keep forgetting to enter this type of information into it. First word. Favorite food. Nicknames, etc. And there's a whole section for photos of each month, along with weight and other stats. Oops.
Thankfully it has a nice drawer to toss mementos into -- of which I have many. Anything from her hospital bracelet to the knit cap she came home in to my pregnancy test (yeah -- might sound super weird, but I feel like keeping it). I can use this stuff to help fill in the gaps. I think I have a project for tonight.
I also think I'd like to pull together a photo book of her entire first year and get it printed professionally versus a photo album. My mom has a huge album of my baby years, but the photos are fading and some are missing.
Have any of you pulled a project like this together? Any suggestions on which printer to go with and which service has the most customizable, yet user-friendly layout tools?
