So my daughter can now tell everyone, "I'm two and a half." And her first year album has been on the shelf, 95% completed since she was a year old. For some reason, I just haven't done the final month's journaling/notes, the closing layout, or embellished the front cover.
Thanks to LOAD 2009, I can proudly say the whole album is COMPLETED. And none too soon, since #2 is due in 4 months! So here is an overview post of the album.
