I've come into a bad habit of not writing about anything but the products and freebies with only a small blurb about what's happening in my life. Which is ridiculous because scrapbooking IS the documenting, celebration and sharing of our lives. The gift of Miss Quinn has reminded me of how important that is so from now on you might see a few posts throughout the weeks that have a little extra rambling in them! :-P
The most important thing in my life right now is the Mighty Quinn, obviously. This is a quick (and profusely terrible) layout I put together for this post - using my kit, "Pitter Patter" (<--which is not terrible).
Quinn was born a little over a week ago on Monday, April 14 at 3:33pm. 04-14-14 at 3:33 - my niece is a human palindrome! She weighed in at 8.1 ounces and measures 21 1/2 inches long, with a full head of hair and the biggest dimples on the squishiest cheeks ever. This is the first granddaughter for my parents, and the first niece for my sisters' and I. It's Quinn's world and we're all just living in it ;-)
It's truly incredible to watch a life begin and progress. I'm at the stage where everything is adorable - yawning, sleeping, sneezing, sleeping, eating, making dirty diapers, sleeping, hiccups, opening her eyes, sleeping.... I have a feeling that I'll be in this stage for many, many years to come. She's a little wiggle worm and just a complete doll. I think her first sentence will be, "Gah, can you all give me some space here?" But Q will have to just deal with and get used to her crazy family, haha I will do my best not to document her every waking moment (maybe) but I will definitely be sharing more about this celestial baby here, as well as more happenings in my crazy life.
Being an Aunt and spending time with little Q and our family has really opened up my eyes to how many moments, themes, achievements, activities, etc. that are so important to document and preserve. Thus, please be advised, I just may be in creating overdrive for a while!
What's an event with endless documenting possibilities? BATH TIME! Seriously, the cutest photos are of little ones laughing and discovering that there are bubbles everywhere, questioning where the rubber ducky went and wondering why mom has to take away all of the fun and dry them off. Thus, my new kit "Squeaky Clean" is here!!! Obviously it will be a while before those teeth come in but I thought I'd throw in brushing teeth as part of the squeaky fun. This would even be a great Tooth Fairy kit. And of course I have a coordinating freebie ;-) Before that, here's a look at a few of my most recent "baby-friendly" kits, all of which are now available.
Don't leave without your "Squeaky Clean" freebie :-)
