I am starting to work on my photo album for Deegan. As I am working on it I am realizing that I want it to be more than just an album filled with photos. I want to journal the memories that are forever linked to the photos. I want to tell our story.
I am really exited about all the little ways I can incorporate this into his album. Here is one example of his birth story. I kept it short and sweet. I wanted to tell the story and the little details but not go too overboard and make it too long.
I also wanted it to be simple enough so that he can read at an early age without too many questions.
I am going to print these as 4x6 photos and put it into the album with the photos of his birth.
I also have screenshots I am going to print of our facebook status' and things that were happening that day.
My husband saying I was a trooper.
My dad posting that my water broke on facebook.
I love that.
My sister posting that she was an aunt and Deegan was going to have awesome parents.
Those are the moments that I cherish.
They tell our story.
