You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby

As most you know, we have been in the midst of moving our home. A temporary home-base with most of our "stuff" in storage is quite liberating, to be honest! As I've chosen between the things we cannot live without for six months and the things that can definitely take a rest in storage I have come across some sentimental items that have really tugged at my heart strings.

Believe me, we are ready for our next chapter, but our old house had truly been our home for the past 9 years so every corner had a memory. Right before we moved I came across... The Baby Books. It has become my mission to make sure my girls' baby books are full. Notice how I didn't use the word "complete". I try to be as realistic as I can (most of the time) and now that we have 2 kiddos I realize that life takes over and I am not sitting in my robe sipping coffee filling in special memories in the girl's baby books as they play in the background on a weekend morning.

Instead, I am fitting in what I can remember, taping in the announcements, invitations and photos. When we had Lucy, my oldest sister gave us her baby book and I instantly fell in love with it. It is a gorgeous fabric-covered binder with a beautiful Swiss embroidered baby gown on the front including her name in a beautiful embroidered script with her birth date. The pages are organized with specific fill-ins so all I have to do is write in the information.  This has made it easier for me to fill the info in and paste special clippings. Pictured below are a few of our favorite baby books from Marcela Creations (Lucy + Greer's is the one to the far right)...

We thank you for your patience through our recent big life change! We have a lot of fun up our sleeves and hope you stick with us to catch it all. We will try to be as consistent as possible, but appreciate your endless understanding as we get our family settled. Cant wait to share as we make our new home our own through these next months. Cheers!
