Scrap vs. Blog


As many of you know, I am officially the last person on the planet without an Ipod. But I am desperately trying not to be the sole non-blogger in the world. So here goes...

Campbell is almost 14 months old and I have yet to finish sorting, cropping (with all sorts of cute and awkward cutting utensils), taping, gluing, stickering and overall decor-documenting the first 365 days of her life. I want to do it- but it makes such a mess and it takes forever. Also there is the pressure of being clever but not too clever... because, hopefully she'll look at this freaking book and think, "my mom really rocked it out with the whole scrapbooking thing!" More than likely it will end up in a cedar chest somewhere and will only get pulled out when embarrassing pictures of her nakedness are needed... or when they want to ridicule me for not bathing her for three weeks after she was born. But we won't get into all that. Focus. Focus. Focus.

Let's see if this little effort goes any better.
Right now the little princess is sleeping. Alan finally hung the swing she got for her birthday so watch for a cute little swinging video any minute now....
Until then.

Peace Out from Cedar Park,
Campbell's Mom

PS- Now I suppose I have to dedicate a page in her scrapbook for her first blog...

What a cute baby. Who needs to scrapbook when you can have a sister do it. :-)

Keep blogs coming.

Nothing says love quite like chocolate on the face thru a smile like that. mmmm mmm sweet and I am not talking about the cooky.

Although this is not making us other mommies look so good since I have no blog, no scrap books and still have yet to even start child #2's baby book :)...but I love this! My first blog comment ever and all for sweet little Campbell...one day you will realize you mommy does rock and she spent some serious time and energy capturing all those precious memories!
Love,
Colette
