Thankful... for Baby J

It fits that I share this album right around Thanksgiving... in case you didn't know, I have an adorable little nephew named Jordan. He just turned the big ONE at the end of October and I wanted to make him a little album documenting his first year. Well, of course it's not really for him, but for his momma and daddy. ;)

How does this connect to Thanksgiving? Well, I am very thankful for little J. He's the cutest little thing and has brought so much joy into our family. My parents love being "Papaw" and "Mamaw" and to see them just light up with Jordan is around is one of the cutest things ever. Not to mention getting to SPOIL a little nephew! It's a lot of fun. 

So here's a peek at the little book I made for baby J (that's what I like to call him... although he won't always be a baby!). I used a needle and embroidery floss to bind the little book together. Also, I had to use my phone to weigh down the cover or else it will flip open. Hah. Good thing I had just bought a new phone case.  



I mixed a lot of products in this album. I just dug though my stash and picked out things I wanted in the album. Baby things and not-so-baby things. I like the mix. 








On this last page, I put an envelope with some extra photos (more recent ones) inside. You can see a close-up of it a few pictures down. 



These photos crack me up... every time I would take my phone out and take a picture of J, he would totally ham it up for the camera and laugh and smile so much. He's adorable. :)



Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I think the thing I will be most thankful for this year is being home with my husband. :)

Such a cute album. And while Mommy and Daddy will enjoy it now, I predict Jordan will love looking at it as he gets older. And it will be a treasure for him for his children. (looking way, way ahead here!)

Awww...your little nephew is so adorable and the little album to help document his first year is so cute. I am sure it will be a treasured keepsake. I like the pocket and the little page inserted. Very clever! Thanks for sharing! :)
