I've been slowly working my way through my oldest daughter's baby pictures.  I scrapped her baby book(s) several years ago, but wanted to condense her first year into a book all its own with the focus more on the important things and with a simple design.  This layout is one of four to document her first four weeks of life.  Isn't it amazing how quickly they change that first month?
