If you've been reading this blog for a while, you may remember the week-by-week photo book that I did while I was pregnant with Mac (HERE). I absolutely love the way it turned out - it's so much fun to look back on that time in my life and read about what we were doing and how excited we were to meet our first baby.
Being just as excited the second time around, I wanted to do the same thing for Mim. I kept a similar layout, but made it a bit different, with fewer colors and more photos. Since she is the second child, I tried really hard to make sure the descriptions were mainly about her and the pregnancy and not about what Mac was doing, but sometimes those were one in the same. I tried to keep this updated as the pregnancy progressed (each week), because pregnancy brain makes it really hard to even remember what you had for dinner that day. If I didn't stay on top of it, I'd never remember what we did a month ago. If I didn't have time to update it, I made sure to write things down on the calendar, which I'll stick in the book and put in Mim's keepsake box.
Once again, I'm absolutely thrilled with the way the pregnancy book turned out. I made it with Blurb (see the preview here),which has really easy software to use and the quality of the book is fantastic. I can't wait to be able to give this to her one day (maybe when she's expecting a baby) and go through it with her. Makes me all weepy just thinking about it...
Anyone else make a pregnancy book?
