just one of the many reasons...

I keep a blog! I am slowly going through my scrapbook room and getting rid of things that I no longer use. As I am going through this process, I am finding lots of things...like this unfinished layout.



This is not like me, to not finish a scrapbook layout. I am all about the start to finish process when it comes to my scrapbooking...the laundry is a different story :-). Anyway,I am pretty sure this layout didn't make it into the scrapbook because it needed a title and some journaling. Just by looking at it, I can tell you that Brody was a baby and maybe 5-7 months old. That little baby, uhhhh, I mean big boy is now 3 years old. The pattern paper/stickers I used are an old SEI line. Just by looking at the pictures, I can't tell you specific details about this exact age/stage except that I know it was getting harder to photograph him because he was on the move at this point. While going back through my blog archives, I found this entry here. Here are those exact photos and some journaling. This my friends, is why I am big believer in journaling and keeping up on the family blog. While I do love to share my scrapbooking layouts, crafting adventures and coupons steals on our blog...I am SO glad I have been documenting the growth of our family along the way. As we have added more boys to the mix the tiny,little details of everyday life have become fuzzy. When reading through that old blog post, I didn't remember Tanner making the comment about how fun it was to have a baby in the house again. Although it does not surprise me :-), I am happy to have it recorded it somewhere :-)! As I finished this layout today, I was able to add all of Brody's 6 month stats & a little journaling about how we all felt about Brody at 6 months.






This is just ONE of the many reason I enjoy keeping our family blog current.
