The other night I finished Mimi's 3 year photo book. I have used IPhoto each year to make hardbound photobooks for her to look back on (and me too) as she gets older. I wished my parents had kept better photo books of me as a child, although I guess with most photography being digital, it is easier and less expensive these days to create photo books.
As I "flipped" through the pages (it's still in digital form), I shed a few tears. Maybe hormones, maybe sadness as my "baby" has grown up so quickly. I feel so blessed everyday that we chose for me to be a stay at home mom. It's such a privilege to watch her grow everyday. I never take it for granted.
Today Mimi and I unwrapped her old bouncer and infant carseat from plastic we sealed them in for "baby 2." I watched her strap her baby dolls in the seats and my heart began to melt at the thought of her being a big sister in a few short months.
I'll leave you with a few photos from the end of her book...her third birthday party.
